APSE Transport and Vehicle Maintenance Seminar - Wednesday 28 June 2023

Wednesday 28 June 2023

Local Authority Fleet operations are the essential element in ensuring the continued delivery of front-line Council services. To ensure well run in-house fleet and maintenance services stay ahead of the game, this seminar brings together the elements that influence future success.

Speakers will cover the national picture, the regulatory context, human, financial and legal issues and strategies for maintaining efficient operations. The seminar will also take a look at innovation, the transition to cleaner fuels, self-regulation and ensuring continued efficient delivery of fleet services.

In the last three years we have experienced a global pandemic with severe disruption to supply chains resulting in vehicle shortages and then war in Ukraine with a resulting energy crisis and huge increases in fuel costs. Combined with rampant inflation and a substantial skills shortage, local authority fleet operators are facing some of the most challenging conditions in a generation. Add on the race for net-zero which will fundamentally change the nature of the vehicles and equipment and the management challenges are multiplied. The job of today’s transport manager is more complex than ever.
