Not only is the Middle East a centre for transport and logistics activity, but it is also increasingly embedded into the international landscape of the two sectors in terms of adopting trends and best practices, as well as in the companies involved.
With the UAE making the switch to higher emission standards there is now a staging point in the market for vehicles that are very close to their counterparts in other markets. This means a higher level of technology than we have ever had access to and this can be only a good thing for fleets looking to modernise, however the ability of fleets to maintain their existing vehicles is also better than ever.
As the region nears the standards of technology and fleet management seen elsewhere in the world, it is being identified as an important, progressive market for the makers of vehicles and fleet software and systems that increase uptime. However, there is still much progress to be made in the safety, efficiency and the sustainability of fleet management.
With state-of-the-art infrastructure and international trade major priorities for the region, we need vehicles and services that can keep pace with these changes. The logistics and transportation sectors are also fields where the Middle East has worldwide prominence. As global and regional hubs of trade and logistics, several cities in the region already use some of the best and most advanced logistics solutions in terms of vehicles and warehouse management. But more can still be done in this field, such as the increased adoption of automation technology in handling and moving materials.
With the Truck & Fleet Middle East Conference we will shed light on key issues in the commercial vehicles, logistics and transportation sectors, bringing the best global and regional practices, solutions and equipment to delegates through presentations and panel discussions.
The Conference is also an ideal networking platform to meet with key industry figures and personalities, as well as decision makers.
Hear from industry veterans and disrupters about the importance and benefits of adopting advanced fleet solutions, learn about key issues relating to safety, efficiency, as well as operational and cost-effectiveness. Listen to the day-to-day experiences of key professionals in the sector and how they have faced and overcome challenging situations.
At the Truck & Fleet Middle East Conference you’ll be able to find out what inspired the individuals and companies at the forefront of the industry to come up with their approaches and solutions and take back invaluable and inspirational lessons to apply to your own areas of work and keep your fleet running faster, longer and leaner.
The Truck & Fleet Middle East Conference is an ideal platform to network and interact with respected professionals and decision makers from contractors, manufacturers, dealers, end-users, government bodies, consultants and solution providers from across the region. With several breaks scheduled for networking, you’ll be able to get one-on-one time with panellists and presenters, following on from interactive presentations and Q&A sessions.
