Vehicle Fleet Management Cost Optimisation, Dubai

ehicle Fleet Management_Dubai May 2018
Overview

Attending the workshop will enable delegates to develop a deep and concise understanding of the key levers for developing and implementing a fleet optimisation strategy. The acquired skill-set along the “4P”-concept will allow to re-shape your fleet in order to make it “fit for purpose” along the organisational needs and objectives, whilst optimising costs.

The course concept goes far beyond the classical “procurement” approach to optimise fleet terms. It also covers a combined view on process efficiency, vehicle policy and alternative powertrains as basis for creating a holistic approach for realizing optimisation.

The theory on fleet optimisation approaches will be enhanced by numerous group exercises based on real examples of “good and bad” procurement practices and case studies of fleet operating companies deriving from recent projects of large multi-national companies operating large corporate fleets in single countries as well as internationally

Get to know the levers of cost optimisations within the vehicle fleet on the basis of the “4P” concept:

  • Procurement: learn to be successful in achieving optimised terms and conditions with your vendors (nationally and internationally)
  • Policy: learn how to set the “right” policy to steer cost savings within your fleet
  • Processes: learn how to shape an efficient organization to minimise process costs whilst maximising your optimisation strategy
  • Powertrains: understand the opportunities for optimisation deriving from different alternative powertrains used within fleets
Who will attend

National, regional, global responsible in their role as:

  • Category Managers for Fleet (procurement responsibles)
  • Fleet Managers (responsibles for daily operations)
  • Supply Chain Managers including vehicle fleet operations
  • Chief Procurement Officers
  • Finance and controlling
  • Human Resources
  • Compensation & Benefit
Trainer

Course Trainer has a long-standing history in the automotive industry. He is currently the Managing Partner where he is responsible for leading and expanding the global fleet consulting business within the group. In this function, Course Trainer is in charge of heading strategic fleet programs for Top Fortune 500 companies by integrating more than 40 markets across the globe. Together with his global Partner network, he executes fleet optimisation projects with a combined fleet spend of typically USD 300-400 million on annual basis resulting in tangible cost reductions and efficiency gains for his clients. Course Trainer regular engagement in vendor negotiations for large fleet clients results in state-of-the-art industry knowledge, which builds the (pragmatic) basis to successfully “DRIVE” their fleet objectives.

Prior to this, he has held international positions at a vehicle manufacturer, fleet management providers and consulting companies. Based on his work experience for a premium brand manufacturer, Course Trainer gained deep knowledge of car manufacturers’ commercial sales strategies. As part of the international key account management team for large corporate clients, he was in charge of the international Tender Execution Management.

Whilst working in business development, sales and account management functions for an international fleet management provider he became an expert in relation to service and process management related concepts. Along the business model of a provider for outsourced fleet management services, Course Trainer created a 360 degree view on the total range of fleet suppliers, which are typically integrated by an external fleet manager. Additionally, he developed a very broad knowledge of fleet strategies across large international fleets across all business segments.

Through his consulting background, he analysed, developed and enhanced a large variety of national to global fleet strategies for fleets up to 20,000 units over the last 7 years. Based on those experiences, he developed the “4P”-optimisation concept, which represents the underlying structure of the course “Vehicle Fleet Management Cost Optimisation”. This approach reflects the basic concept, when working on fleet optimisation scans for Fleetcompetence’ clients and thus is 100% workable.

Case Studies

CASE STUDY 1: How to approach and negotiate with suppliers

CASE STUDY 2: How to approach and negotiate with suppliers

CASE STUDY 3: Approach for realising savings within fuel.

CASE STUDY 4: Assessment approach operational processes based on a RASIC model

CASE STUDY 5: Learn why a powertrain approach is much more than only pure fuel savings

 

GROUP EXERCISE 1: Evaluation of an example lease contract

GROUP EXERCISE 2: Policy document assessment.

GROUP EXERCISE 3: Present optimisation road-map as basis for group exchange

Trainer

A former informant and now expert with experience in radicalisation, deradicalisation, countering violent extremism (CVE), National security and Counter-terrorism. Course Trainer was born and raised in Canada, growing up with two conflicting and competing cultures. At the age of 19, he went to India and Pakistan where he had a chance encounter with the Taliban before their takeover of Afghanistan in 1995.  Course Trainer became fully radicalised as a supporter of the global Jihadist culture, recruiting others but the 9/11 attacks forced to him reconsider his views. He spent 2 years in Syria, continuing his study of Arabic and Islamic Studies and went through a period of full deradicalisation.

Returning to Canada in 2004, he was recruited by the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) and worked several CLASSIFIED infiltration operations on the internet, in chat-protected forums and on the ground with human networks.  In late 2005, one of those intelligence files moved to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), Integrated National Security Enforcement Team (INSET) for investigation. The "Toronto 18" terrorism case resulted in the conviction of 11 aspiring violent extremists after testifying over 4 years, in 5 legal hearings at the Ontario Superior Court of Justice.

Course Trainer has since obtained a Master of Policing, Intelligence and Counter Terrorism (MPICT). He is now an external SME (Subject Matter Expert) on national security and counterterrorism to the Command Staff of CENTCOM, the United Nations Security Council & Counter Terrorism Executive Directorate and trains police, intelligence and special operations forces on relevant topics. He has appeared on multiple U.S., British and Canadian media outlets (CNN, CBC, ABC and NBC) as a commentator and is extensively involved with the ISIS social media and Foreign Fighter file, including Returnees and rehabilitation.

Case Studies
