Connectivity offers endless possibilities to corporate fleets and support fleet managers in secure the Triple S mission (Savings, Safety, Sustainability).

Register now for the virtual Connected Fleets Conference on 30 September from 9.30am until 5pm CET

The Connected Fleets Conference, an organisation of Fleet Europe, is the international conference bringing together buyer profiles and the connected solutions suppliers. This event has a strong focus on learning and sharing vision and best practices, bringing no less than 14 real cases. As the conference caters for both buyer profiles and suppliers, there will be two learning streams dedicated to both audiences. 

On 30 September 2021, the Connected Fleets Conference will investigate how telematics can bring success to corporate fleets. The conference is focused on corporate fleet buyers on the one hand, including passenger car fleets, commercial vehicle fleets and truck fleets, and the supply chain and resellers on the other hand, including connectivity and telematics suppliers & resellers, leasing companies, rental companies, carsharing companies, insurance companies and car manufacturers.
