This Fleet Europe award recognises the person or team with a responsibility and direct influence on the vehicle fleet programme of a multinational in Europe, and has been exemplary in deploying a programme that combines the strengths of overall procurement efficiency and supplier management with an optimisation of vehicle emissions and safety, and the attention for new employee mobility solutions, all the while respecting the company’s overall business strategy.
