continued: “The ‘cafe-style’ webinars via presentations and an informal
question and answer sessions have proved extremely popular with ACFO members.
Judging from the feedback received.
“The webinars are
designed to confront head-on, with assistance from experts, the ‘big’
challenges that fleet managers are facing and future fuels is among the agenda-topping
issues. The webinar will provide fleet operators with information and insight
to aid decision-making.”
The webinars are
designed to enable ACFO members to obtain up-to-date information without
leaving their desks on key announcements by legislators in Europe, Whitehall

impact on their fleet strategies and long-term operations.
