ACFO’s third webinar will focus on fleet fuels of the future, as it is one of the biggest issues facing fleet managers today. Diesel, petrol, hybrid, hybrid electric and 100% electric are all in the mix depending on cost and fitness-for-purpose, and in order to help fleet managers with their decision making, a trio of experts will join the UK’s premier fleet decision-makers’ organisation’s webinar taking place on Friday, 22nd of June at 12 noon.

ACFO digital chairman Julie Summerell will be hosting the webinar, together with digital secretary James Pestell and an expert panel that will deliver presentations and will be available to answer questions.

The panel includes Doug Hyett, national fleet sales manager, Volkswagen UK, who will focus on the diesel debate, current and future diesel challenges and provide a manufacturer’s view on future fleet fuels; Stewart Lightbody, head of fleet services, Anglian Water Services, and an ACFO member, who will provide a fleet operator’s perspective on the ensuing debate; and James O’Neill, UK sales director, , at international electric solutions provider Ensto, who will analyse the top five plug-in vehicle concerns facing fleet managers.

“The ‘cafe-style’ webinars via presentations and an informal question and answer sessions have proved extremely popular with ACFO members. Judging from the feedback received,” said Ms Summerell. “The webinars are designed to confront head-on, with assistance from experts, the ‘big’ challenges that fleet managers are facing and future fuels is among the agenda-topping issues. The webinar will provide fleet operators with information and insight to aid decision-making.”

The ACFO webinars aim to help its members obtain up to date information, without having to leave their desks, on key announcements by legislators in Europe, Whitehall and at a local government level and insight as to how those measures will impact on their fleet strategies and long-term operations.
