Fleet Logistics launches Global Mobility Solutions arm

Fleet Logistics has created a Global Mobility Solutions unit to support its customers with key issues such as corporate mobility, sustainability, cost and electrification.

The move, which Fleet said has been timed to help companies tackle ‘a long list of burning issues’ in the face of COVID-19, will see unit combine the market intelligence and methodologies from the existing consultancy division with the data management and analytical skills of the international reporting team.

It will be led by Thibault Alleyn (pictured) as the new head of global mobility solutions.

He said: “We wish to play our role as industry experts, and share insights and knowledge with mobility stakeholders, independently of in-house or outsourced management.

“Across Global Mobility Solutions, whether consultancy, reporting, analytics or publications, everything is based on real-life, hands-on experience gained from working for some 25 years with some of the world’s major organisations – combined with fact-based forward-thinking.”

As well as dealing with immediate concerns on making their fleets more efficient, cost-effective and transparent under the current severe economic challenges, many businesses are also looking closely at introducing a greater share of alternative powertrains, as more people may be home working and travelling fewer business miles. This makes switching to electrified fleets even more economically relevant than before.

The Global Mobility Solutions unit will also launch a range of publications, including ‘how to’ guides, in-depth country and topical reports, and fleet and mobility spend evolution bulletins.

Fleet Logistics Group CEO Steffen Schick added: “We have formed the Global Mobility Solutions unit to engage with stakeholders around the trends that will shape our future mobility and to help them evaluate what their options are, based on our trademark pragmatic and factual approach.

“Cost-effectiveness, sustainability and transparency are approached from six key angles: strategy, technology, policy, change, procurement and process.”
