As he leaves the meeting, the fleet manager can be seen wiping a little sweat off of his brow. His employer has just informed him and the rest of his staff that they will now no longer be merely in charge of 5,000 vehicles throughout the United States, but will be gaining an additional 1,500 vehicles spread out throughout Europe and Asia. He’s excited about the new challenge, but the logistics and complexities of the situation makes his head spin. Thankfully, he’s not alone. Others who have faced these challenges before will lend their expertise during NAFA’s Mastering International Fleet Management Seminar, which will take place October 16-18 in Tampa, FL.
Fleet managers who find themselves managing a global fleet will likely encounter business rituals and cultures completely different than their own, unique government regulations and legislation, as well as the obvious language barriers. The agenda for the Mastering International Fleet Seminar will address these issues head on. Led by Hans Damen and Peter Egan of FleetVision, the Mastering International Fleet Management Seminar features expert speakers from Europe and South America with a “fleet-managers-only” portion on Wednesday and a panel session of experts on Thursday.
The target audience for NAFA’s Mastering International Fleet Management Seminar includes:
- Fleet managers and directors in charge of, or who will soon be in charge of, fleet operations in multiple countries
- Corporate executives with reporting responsibility for their organization’s fleet operations
- Fleet personnel who assist fleet managers and directors in their global fleet operations
- Fleet managers, directors, and executives who want to learn more about multi-national operations
The seminar will explore the complexities of running a multi-nation fleet; discuss differences in business culture and how each country’s workers perceive “outsiders”; help attendees understand the components and complexities of Total Cost of Ownership; and review the latest and current data and information from around the globe. Seminar registrants will receive a European taxation guide produced by Price Waterhouse Coopers and a copy of NAFA’s new Guide to International Fleet Management -- two extremely valuable publications to take back to the office.
