There is just no better opportunity to network, to learn, and to mingle with the best and the brightest than an in-person fleet event.
Fleets are often the beta testers of the vehicle market. That shift away from compact sedans we saw in the fleet market a few years ago is playing out in real time in the retail market right now.
Data is driving fleet decisions more than ever. Whether it’s big data or small data, fleet management is becoming less of an art every day and more of a science.
The mainstream media may have sold out lock stock and barrel to the fringe elements but as a fleet decision maker you still have some tremendous resources that you can rely on.
We may not be able to predict the future here at Automotive Fleet, but we can confidently predict that 2017 will be very interesting.
When it’s all said and done, there usually is a right answer for a particular fleet and the best person to make that decision is a well-educated fleet manager.

Fleet Technology Expo will include three days of education on tactics for optimizing fleet software and data and alternative-fuel adoption, information on the latest technologies you'll see in your fleet in the not-so-distant future, strategies for reducing fuel use and maintenance costs, and more.

'Automotive Fleet' defines a fleet as any commercial or public entity that operates 15 or more vehicles or buys 10 or more vehicles in a single calendar-year.
It’s a great time for fleet managers to make a real difference, save money, save lives, and make their businesses more productive.
The best fleet managers survived the total fleet management era because they brought value to their companies.
There are a lot of safety options available for the modern fleet’s drivers. It’s time to take a more nuanced look at the options that are available in the market today.
