Fleet Operators have never been under more pressure to reduce costs and deliver more – all in an increasingly regulated environment. To meet this challenge Fleet Operators must exploit available technologies and apply best practice management principles.

Building on from the success of delivering 12 years of professional development workshops around Australia

The fleet community is facing unprecedented change and challenges. Constant pressure to reduce cost, the rapid integration of new technologies and increasing compliance obligations are impacting how fleet is managed. IPWEA’s Australasian Fleet Conference will have two streams; one focused on fleet management and the other on maintenance. There will also be a number of networking opportunities for fleet practitioners to meet colleagues and share ideas. The conference will appeal to both public and private sector fleet personnel. Keynote sessions will involve experts in their field who will share their vision on how to prepare for the challenges confronting the fleet sector.

Invitations to sponsors and exhibitors to be part of this industry leading conference are now open.

FLEET operators are involved in the entire spectrum of the supply chain and the combined spend of the local government sector alone on plant and fleet (capital, maintenance, parts, consumables, services etc) is in the billions of dollars. Fleet operators who embrace new initiatives and best practice will be at the forefront of the industry and will deliver substantial savings to their organisations.

The conference is a premier event and set to break new ground in Australia by bringing fleet professionals from councils, public sector agencies and the private sector together with suppliers and technical practitioners to learn how to reduce costs, leverage technology and deliver best practice fleet management.

By partnering with the Brisbane Truck Show we are delivering a value package that demonstrates our understanding and immersion in the fleet sector.

See you there!

Ross Moody, IPWEA Executive Officer & Director Fleet

“To my knowledge, this is the first conference of its kind to ever be offered in Australia. It’s a mixed-fleet conference run by practitioners, for practitioners, and will cover everything from graders to push mowers and everything in between.

No matter what part of fleet you work in, no matter the size of your organisation, this is the fleet conference that will give you practical information you can take back to your organisation and start using the next day.

With an expert fleet executive team boasting at least 160 years of industry knowledge from around Australia, IPWEA is the right organisation to deliver this conference.”

Andrew Railz, Manager Fleet Services

“IPWEA Fleet has stamped itself as the peak industry body that provides professional development for our members across Australia.

The IPWEA Fleet Council is made up of practitioners who work in, and know the industry. This allows the professional development, designed and delivered by the IPWEA, to be relevant and timely.

Resources such as the Plant and Vehicle Management Manual provide a world class standard to guide practitioners in effectively and efficiently managing their fleets. The Fleet Management Certificate and the Maintenance Supervisor Training are excellent examples of IPWEA delivering unique training that truly reflects our industry and the challenges that confront us.

The inaugural IPWEA Fleet Conference is the culmination of a lot of work from the Fleet Council and will bring together fleet managers, workshop staff, fleet stakeholders and the industry in a program that is relevant and addresses current and future challenges.”
