1 Day Workshop to Focus on the Closing Gap Between Driver and Fleet Management

20 March 2010

E-Training World is running a workshop on 21st April 2010 to look at a vital issue which is starting to affect everyone in the fleet sector – the increasing need to manage drivers and their behaviours, as well as the vehicle.

“Fleet management has always been about the vehicle”, explains Graham Hurdle, Managing Director of E-Training World. “Dealing with maintenance, handling accidents, managing disposals and ensuring the vehicle is operational, mobile and being run at the most efficient whole life cost possible.

“But with an entire industry and set of professions built around fleet management, we now see ourselves entering a new era – Driver Management. And this is throwing up a huge and diverse range of new challenges for anyone operating in the fleet market.”

The 1 day workshop at the Warwick Hilton Hotel costs just £47 per delegate and will look at how the management of drivers can be integrated into the management of vehicles seamlessly – currently two areas that run separately for most fleet operators.

“We are being asked on a weekly basis by fleet managers about how they can integrate the traditional aspects of fleet management into the new era of managing driver risk, driver attitude, behaviour and all other aspects of assessment, training and compliancy,” concluded Hurdle. “Which is why we felt it was a good time to look at this issue in more detail, but also invite delegates from all aspects of the fleet sector to come and share their views and experiences.”

If you would like to attend the workshop on 21st April, please contact Graham Hurdle on graham@e-trainingworld.com or 0845 260 7998.
