Fleet Europe Summit
16-17 November 2022 - Dublin (Netherlands)
This year’s 2022 edition of the Fleet Europe Summit focused on looking to future: “Fleet Sustainability, for People, Planet, Profit”. We participated in three panel discussions and held a thought leadership session during this year’s event:
Maximizing the User Experience in Fleet & Mobility
What do corporate fleet decision makers want? The same thing as their drivers and mobility-entitled employees: quality solutions and services, that are easily accessible, user-friendly, and efficient. And not just efficient in terms of time and money, but also in terms of security and safety. Clearly, user requirements have become more sophisticated. And: the user experience is now a key factor in the fleet and mobility ecosystem. So, what does this mean and how could we benefit from it?
Vanessa Govi, our Chief Digital Officer, participated to this panel, along with Olivier Baldassari, Group Chief Operating Officer at Europcar Mobility Group, Edward Kulperger, Senior Vice President EMEA at Geotab.
Beyond supply and infrastructure: scaling for the Evolution
With the electric EVolution well underway, the automotive industry is continuing to evolve to adapt to emerging technologies, consumer demands and government legislation. Now, attention must also be given to the practical aspects of maintaining EV fleets at scale. How is the fleet sector working to maximise the health and battery lifecycle of their EV fleets? What changes is the EVolution bringing to the defleet process, and what steps are being taken to maximise residual values? And how is this contributing to our collective sustainability goals?
John Saffrett, our Deputy CEO, participated to this panel, along with Karoline Baumann, Strategy Director- Europe at Cox Automotive, and Martin Forbes, President at Cox Automotive International.
Mobility management in a crisis! A survival guide
The world is facing a geopolitical storm with war and economic uncertainty disrupting supply chains and creating a global energy crisis. On top of this, the environmental crisis threatens permanent damage to our planet and hence the road to net zero and sustainability ambitions are still of paramount importance.
Annie Pin, our Chief Commercial Officer and John Saffrett, our Deputy CEO, led this thought leadership session, outlining how these events are creating unparallel volatility and disruption for mobility ambitions and provide insight into how leasing companies such as ALD Automotive can help fleet managers plot a steady path to meeting their sustainability goals despite these disruptions.
Ensuring Business Continuity in Fleet & Mobility - Executive Panel
Corporate fleets have a major role to play in ensuring operational continuity for their company. That’s easier said than done in a market is characterised by not one but many disruptive trends… In this environment, it’s not easy to anticipate and prepare for the future. But it’s not impossible. Executives from leasing companies discussed how to mitigate risk and ensure fleet and mobility continuity.
With John Saffrett, our Deputy CEO, along with Berno Kleinherenbrink, Chief Commercial Officer at LeasePlan Christian Schüler, CEO of Athlon Markus Deusing, CEO of Alphabet International Bart Beckers, Chief Commercial Officer - Deputy CEO of Arval

On Tuesday 14 June, Annie Pin, our Chief Commercial Officer, was participating to the session "Electrifying entire company fleets – is it possible?", along with Patrik Havranek, Head of Group Fleet Management, ISS Facility Services AG.
When a global company that operates in several countries are working on electrifying its entire fleets of vehicles, it will be challenging, but it will reduce emissions globally. Furthermore, it will be an important source of inspiration, both to employees and competing companies.
19-21 May 2022 – Paris (France)
Reducing carbon emissions has become a business imperative and sustainable mobility can contribute. Transitioning a corporate fleet to electric vehicles seems an obvious choice, but the process is more complex than just changing cars. Alternative mobility solutions can also be a great option in urban environments, the challenge is deciding how to adapt it to your company. The bottom line is that making the move to cleaner corporate mobility is possible. Find out what options are available and how ALD Automotive is accompanying its clients on this journey.

The “smart” way of approaching future mobility – electric, digital and fully connected
Times are changing and so are OEM distribution models. Faced with the need to transition to electric vehicles and the growing trend towards new, digitally arranged usership, smart decided to take a leap of faith and reinvent its mobility business model from the ground up to future proof its growth. This has meant carrying out a complete overhaul of its customer journey, using a digital first approach and embracing the transition away from classical long-term ownership models towards mid- and even short-term usership. This fireside chat will delve into the details around this pivotal change in smart’s development.

Why sustainability matters – right now!
A no brainer, right? Wrong. We all agree that sustainability is important, but “being” sustainable is a totally different matter. It means reinventing how you run your business. It means adapting to new rules, new requirements, new products, new expectations and keeping operations running smoothly in the meanwhile. There are, however, ways to make it happen; you just need to be resourceful and ready to explore new options… And given the megatrends we’re seeing, this is just the beginning.
With John Saffrett, Deputy CEO of ALD Automotive
When energy prices are skyrocketing: buckle up and keep your TCO on track
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.
