Accelerating towards electric vehicles

London |
Speakers include:

Overview

The fleet management business is changing, amid shifting consumer demand, government pressure to reduce emissions and digitisation across sectors. At the centre of this revolution in transport, deliveries and logistics are CDOs and CIOs, who are working alongside more traditional operational roles to reinvent the industry.

How open are fleet owners to innovations such as electric vehicles, data and automation? How will decisions made now impact future customer service and public perception? What will be the impact on corporate revenue and taxation? Must companies partner together to harness the benefits of new technologies, pool risk and revamp their businesses? How will financing models evolve amid massive disruption? What lessons can be learned from other sectors?

The Financial Times, in partnership with Hitachi, is pleased to present this peer-to-peer roundtable dinner discussion for CIOs, CDOs, COOs, Heads of Logistics and Heads of Fleet at the world’s largest fleet owners. Drawing on guests’ expertise across transport, electric vehicles, automation, manufacturing and OEMs, we will explore fleet owners’ data strategies and debate the future roles for electric vehicles and automation.
