After a successful 3rd edition of the Fleet Excellence Training at AidEx in 2015, this year AidEx partnered with Fleet Forum to provide a fleet management training programme to improve fleet operations and humanitarian logistics in aid agencies on November 14 to 18.
Fleet Excellence Training has a direct impact on staff members in aid/development organisations that are operating a vehicle fleet. 16 participants were given the opportunity to reduce costs, increase safety, and reduce their environmental footprint. By transferring practical knowledge and skills, organisations also increase the professionalism of their fleet operations.
Over the past few years Fleet Forum has developed practical, hands-on training that increase the knowledge and skills of field staff in the area of fleet management, fleet safety, and clean fleets. The workshops are specifically designed for the aid /development sector and aim to make fleet operations more cost efficient, to increase staff safety, and to reduce the environmental impact of fleet operations.
Although practical in operation, the training also provides opportunities for participants to work on more strategic topics in this area, such as strategy development, managerial action planning, and risk assessments.
The training was for 5 days and included:
- Access to fleet management e-learning modules, which will help participants learn the basics at their own pace before the training in Brussels
- Classroom training which will include fleet management, fleet safety management and clean fleet strategy modules
- A special workshop dedicated to cross-sector collaboration (more information to follow) and a chance to network with fleet managers at country, regional and global level
- A guided tour of the AidEx exhibition and opportunity to meet fleet suppliers
The training was free of charge for successful candidates, who will also be entitled to 1,000 euros towards the cost of their travel and accommodation.
