FOCUS: FIAG to focus on fleet procurement
Newly-formed Fleet Industry Advisory Group’s (FIAG) first workshop will focus on fleet procurement and purchasing best practice, it has been confirmed.
Fleet decision-makers will have the change to share best practice and hear expert advice at the event – ‘Experience – Driving Change’ – at Arnold Clark Group’s GTG Training Academy, Wolverhampton, on May 21.
Launched earlier this month, FIAG are the brainchild of industry veteran Geoffrey Bray and a team of highly-experienced professional fleet managers.
Annual subscription costs £350, with members able to benefit from the launch workshop, future similar events and white papers on key industry issues.
Mr Bray said: “FIAG has been created by highly-knowledgeable professional fleet managers to enhance the knowledge, capability and skills of other industry professionals.
“Through FIAG fleet managers are sharing their many years of experience to further professionalise the industry to which they have dedicated many years of their lives.
“Invariably there is no right or wrong way or single formula to tackling a fleet issue, but through networking, communication and a hugely knowledgeable base of founder members best practice can be shared and adopted more widely.
“The goal for every professional fleet manager should be to implement a sustainable performance programme in all areas of managing the driver, vehicle and journey.”
