Electric vehicle roadmap webinar announced by AFP


The Association of Fleet Professionals (AFP) have announced the launch of a new webinar entitled “Introducing Electric Vehicles - Upgrading Your Policy and Implementing Your EV Roadmap”.
Taking place at 9.30am on 16th December and open to AFP members, it is designed to help fleet professionals navigate through the introduction of EVs into their business travel plans.
The event will be hosted by AFP director Julie Summerell and include presentations from Simon King, director of sustainability, social value and fleet at Mitie and Lorna McAtear, fleet manager at National Grid.
The webinar is also being used to launch the new AFP Best Practice Fleet Policy Guide for EVs, which is available to all of the organisation’s members through its web site.
AFP chair Paul Hollick, said: “While the coronavirus crisis might have affected the availability of new EVs and slowed fleet adoption as a result, there is no question that fleet enthusiasm appears to be unaffected.
“The webinar will look at the practicalities of introducing EVs to your business, from vehicle choice to range management and from charging availability to drawing up choice lists.
“Our speakers are at different stages in their EV journey, with Simon pretty far advanced down the road and Lorna just starting out, so it’ll be interesting to hear about their contrasting experiences and expectations.”
This is the third AFP webinar to be held since the formation of the organisation in March from the merging of the Association of Car Fleet Operators (ACFO) and the Institute of Car Fleet Management (ICFM). A full calendar of 2021 events will be announced very soon.
