Discover what 2018 holds for the fleet industry

January 2018

Ed Stanistreet, General Manager of Toyota Fleet Management, takes us through what’s set to be a big year for the fleet industry.

I hope everyone has had a Merry Christmas with family and friends. At Toyota Fleet Management, we’re kicking off the New Year with a clear goal – to be ‘future-ready’ and to support customers to also be ‘future-ready’. Our focus will be in three main areas; environmental legislation, driver safety and business mobility.

Environmental legislation is changing around the world, so the Australian fleet market needs to be prepared if we’re going to keep up. In particular, we need to be wary of the regulatory changes around CO2 emissions that are likely to hit Australia in the coming years.

As a business, we are focused on educating our customers about regulatory changes globally and locally, whilst working together to implement the appropriate changes so we are all future-ready.

We are also focused on promoting the progress of hybrid and electric vehicles as well as other new technologies which are all aimed at reducing CO2 emissions.  Adopting such technologies is important to future-proof business for change and satisfy new customer needs.

Driver safety is another important item for the team at Toyota Fleet Management. We will be focused on helping our customers utilise our innovative future ready technologies, such as ForceField Telematics™, which is aimed at improving driver behavior and identifying safety concerns, while maximising operational efficiencies.

In terms of personal goals for 2018, I want to continue to support Toyota’s European and US fleet teams, as well as their international customers. That, and to bring my golf handicap down from 20 to 15!

As always, Toyota Fleet Management is committed to continuous improvement. By listening to our customers’ needs and staying ahead of fleet industry trends, we can all move forward together. Here’s to a prosperous year ahead!
