Sustainability, the engine of global fleet management.

There’s one key trend that’s driving the future of global fleet management in general. And one key ingredient that will make your global fleet management in particular a success in 2022 and beyond. That key trend, that key ingredient: Sustainability.

Sustainability takes a multitude of shapes and forms, many of which can be linked to the fleet and mobility ecosystem. Sustainability informs carbon-neutral targets, zero-emission vehicles, ethical business practices, and socially responsible business models – among other things.

For all those reasons, it’s crucial that you align your business strategy with the industry-wide pivot towards Sustainability. How? By identifying the means to right-size your fleet. And by minimizing your environmental footprint. Both of which will increase the efficiency of your fleets.

And that is exactly what the 2022 Global Fleet Conference in Lisbon will help you to achieve.

From 2 to 4 May, this year’s largest gathering of global fleet experts and professionals will make the 2022 Global Fleet Conference sparkle and buzz with excitement. Industry executives, opinion leaders and decision makers from the various regions around the world will be present. There’ll be things to learn, people to meet and best practices to be exchanged, thanks to the presence of members of the Global Fleet Managers Club, award-winning fleet managers, and many others.

  • DAY 1 - 02/05


  • The registration desk will be located in the Lobby. The badge gives you an access to the whole conference programme.

  • The Fleet LatAm Business Networking Group is the community of companies involved in corporate mobility across Latin-America, gathering fleet managers, suppliers, start-ups, operating in one or more countries in Latam. Its goal is to stimulate international business opportunities in fleet and mobility across Latin America. Join the meeting!

  • Who better to learn from than your global fleet peers’ best practices? That's the idea behind the Global Fleet Managers Club – a meeting uniquely based on best-practice sharing by and for global and international fleet managers. This time with the winner of the 2021 Global Fleet Manager of the Year Award, Jan-Hendrik RAUHUT of Bayer.

  • DAY 2 - 03/05


  • Welcome word By Caroline THONNON, CEO and Steven SCHOEFS, Editor-in-chief, Global Fleet

  • The holy grail of Sustainability is the circular economy, in which the emphasis is on re-use of materials rather than continued reliance on dwindling raw materials. Pitted against the ideal of the ethical supply chain is the reality of geopolitical uncertainty, surging energy prices, the ongoing microchip shortage. Some of those issues work against circularity, others might actually bring it closer.

  • No two individuals are the same. The same also goes for fleet regions and their market maturity. In each region, business preferences differ, as do suppliers, and their customer’s needs. In this session, we will look at what binds the various fleet regions of the world, and what divides them.

  • The Middle East might not be the biggest or most important fleet region, but it’s a region with plenty of mobility innovation and disruption. Think about connected tech and autonomous, but also urban mobility. In this session, you will learn how the Middle East is at the forefront of fleet and mobility innovation.

  • Never has the development of EVs accelerated at a faster pace. Almost every car manufacturer has made EVs a key pillar of their strategy – some have indeed already announced they’ll be an EV-only brand in just a few years’ time. The million-dollar question is whether EV uptake will happen in the same way across all regions. Learn what the speed of fleet electrification means for your global programme.

  • OEMs are investing billions to become theirs customers’ preferred sustainable partner for the future. Zero-emission vehicles, recycled and light-weight materials, limiting the use of natural resources: the list goes on. In this session you will hear first-hand how car manufacturers today are reshaping their business and your mobility with Sustainability.

  • You recognize that international access to (and decoding of) the right fleet data is the gateway to reaching your future fleet goals. Then you think, “How do I go about launching one harmonized solution to leverage my fleet data story considering challenges such as GDPR, HR preferences, legal considerations, work councils, and local requirement variations?” To answer that question, join us for a strategic and practical discussion on best practices gleaned from customer use cases. Then, head back to the office equipped to take that step towards your future fleet.

  • You too can design, build, implement and monitor a global fleet and mobility programme that both fits corporate goals like a glove and satisfies stakeholders and drivers. And it doesn’t even need to be a challenge.

  • Drivers are at the centre of the global safety and sustainability community. The challenges and risks that drivers face on the roads every day cannot be underestimated. Many fleets are unaware of how technology and data can provide rich insights into addressing these challenges and mitigating risk. Martin Rojas, from the IRU, and David Brazell, from Lytx, will give a behind the scenes look at key trends in connected technology and its impact on the future of road safety and sustainability.

  • Let’s get this out of the way: your sustainability targets won’t be achieved just by electrifying your fleets. Sustainability is a wider topic, and an even bigger challenge than electrification. Attend OviDrive’s session to understand how to implement a global sustainability strategy, including but also beyond EVs. 

  • The transition from ownership to usership is inevitable and fits perfectly with the trend towards the circular economy. This transition translates into the corporate fleet ecosystem as "mobility”. The mobility supply chain is new, diverse, and often local, but the pace at which it develops is international. In this session, you will discover ways to expand your fleet programme into a corporate mobility programme that is accessible for all employees.

  • The perfect pairing for a greener future, learn more on the benefits of using telematics technology to meet your sustainability targets.

  • Executive panel discussion with major global leasing companies. Topic: How do they adapt their business models to include solutions that are right for the new era of Sustainable Fleet & Mobility?

  • DAY 3 - 04/05


  • Gasoline and diesel prices are reaching new records day-by-day and electricity is rapidly following suit. “Fuel” has always been the second most important factor in a vehicle’s overall cost, but in such an unprecedented context, efficiently running a mixed fleet of ICE, hybrid and battery electric vehicles is a real challenge. Rest assured, there are ways to reclaim control and get that energy cost equation right. How? It starts by optimizing your TCO.

  • Fleet owners suffer from an overabundance of fleet information from multiple data sources yet lack the ability to put that information to work for them automatically. Today’s vehicle alerts might be automated but the actions typically that follow are manual. Connected Car technologies such Vehicle Diagnostics retrieval, Digital keys and immobilizers, traditionally viewed in the context of shared mobility, are now enabling logistics and service fleets with new ways to secure fleet vehicles, using digital access control, and increase uptime by automating fleet maintenance and repair tasks. In this session, you will learn: 1. How technology can be used to digitalize fleets and fleet operations 2. How fleet data can be used to create actionable insights and automated workflows 3. How to leverage multiple telematics platforms to make switching vehicles or drivers completely handled through digital means. How these processes can optimize costs and increase margins

  • Learn how Belgian postal giant, Bpost transformed their fleet sustainability profile with actionable intelligence from their fleet management partner, MiX Telematics.

  • Mobility meets sustainability - building resilience for today’s and tomorrow’s fleets Fleet owners and operators are currently experiencing a perfect storm of emerging mobility business models, and environmental drivers towards sustainability. Those who can pivot to new asset use cases whilst also meeting environmental commitments, can achieve sustainable efficiencies on many levels. In this session we’ll explore how keeping your fleets moving sustainably, managing asset lifecycles, and meeting the environmental responsibilities of defleeting electric vehicles, can help drive successful commercial and environmental outcomes for your organisation.

  • In this best practice Almy Magalhaes shares the corporate fleet strategy of Ecolab with attention for Sustainability and Innovative solutions that are of support.

  • How capturing, analysing and cross-referencing data from multiple sources and platforms can and will drive future fleets’ sustainability and new transportation models.

  • 1. The current status of mobility transition in selected markets. 2. The impact of mobility transition to reach companies Net Zero goals. 3. 10 steps on the way to a successful mobility transition.
