Breaking Down Internal Combustion Engine Alternatives- Fuel Cells VS Electric Vehicles | Utilimarc Fleet FYIs
It seems like every fleet today is searching for a simple answer to their sustainability concerns. Whether that be exploring alternative fuels, using data analytics to minimize waste, or phasing out internal combustion engine vehicles - it’s pretty clear that there is no quick fix. Especially as each fleet is unique in its operation and needs.And sustainability is complicated. We all know I love sounding a bit like a broken record on this topic – so if you’ve heard this before, bear with me, but it doesn’t make it any less true. Sustainability is multi-faceted. Truly. And we’ll be digging into this topic in a very near-future episode.For those opting to phase out ICEVs, the go-to alternative is typically electric vehicles. There are nearly 100 different models of EVs on the market today and the promise of electric pick-up trucks in the near future is an exciting prospect as well. For fleets with heavier duty vehicles, however, EVs will not be an option for a very long time. Another technology being explored and invested into by OEMs is hydrogen-powered vehicles. There is a ton of potential for using the most abundant element on Earth to power vehicles, though the idea has not become mainstream as of yet.-----Show notes for today's episode can be found at: Reese on LinkedInUtilimarc on LinkedIn, Instagram, Facebook and YouTube#UtilimarcFleetFYIswww.utilimarc.com

The UK is One of The World’s Sustainability Leaders…Will The North American Market Be Soon to Follow? | Utilimarc Fleet FYIs
I’m really excited to bring today’s panel to the show – as you might have guessed, it has to do with the trans-Atlantic bridge between North America (so United States and Canada) and the UK. We’re delving into sustainability, international trends, safety and more – but the super exciting piece is that I’m joined today by some of the speakers from the Fleet Vision International Conference that takes place in London, from the 12th-13th of April this year. For those of you that don’t know of Fleet Vision International – the show or the magazine, or haven’t heard more than just the name – here’s what you need to know. Fleet Vision International – THE SHOW is the leading B2B trade event aimed at fleet, transport and workshop managers employed in complex and specialist operations, aimed at fleet management operations which operate large numbers of specialty vehicles, which deliver critical services for the public and the supply chain. Think local authorities, waste management, emergency services, airports, hauling, utilities, construction and more.On today’s episode, I have a panel of guests that have worked with or are speaking at Fleet Vision International – Ann-Marie Knegt, the founder of Visie Communcations and the mastermind behind Fleet Vision International. You’ll meet her here shortly. Next, we’ve got Kevin Barcroft, academy training manager for Simply Waste Solutions. Kate Cairns is also joining us today, she’s passionate about saving the planet and vehicle safety – both efforts can be strongly seen through her work at CLOCS (Construction Logistics and Community Safety) and her freelance work through Cairns Consultancy. Vince Dignam is here, he is the business performance manager for the city of London, as well as Michael Britt who was formerly with UPS and now heads his own consulting business MG Britt. Lastly, we’ve got Nathan Wilson and Sukky Choongh with us as well. Nathan has spent the last 40+ years in the industry, and is currently the account and market development manager for the UK and Republic of Ireland at Allison Transmission Europe. Sukky is the Environmental Manager for Air Quality and Ultra Low Emission Vehicles and Inclusivity Officer for the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders, otherwise known as SMMT.----Show notes for today's episode can be found at: Reese on LinkedInUtilimarc on LinkedIn, Instagram, Facebook and YouTube#UtilimarcFleetFYIswww.utilimarc.comFLEET VISION INTERNATIONAL PANELLISTS: Ann-Marie Knegt on LinkedInSukky Choongh on LinkedInNathan Wilson on LinkedInKate Cairns on LinkedInMichael Britt on LinkedInKevin Barcroft on LinkedInVince Dignam on LinkedIn
