Webfleet Solutions – a Bridgestone company – presents first global edition of the annual Webfleet Mobility Conference

Webfleet Solutions, one of the world's leading solutions provider and part of Bridgestone, presents the first global edition of the annual Webfleet Mobility Conferencewhich will be held virtually on 26 April 2022.

 

Under the theme 'Mobility 2032: Are you ready?', industry experts from across the fleet and mobility landscape will share their insights and best practices to equip fleet decision-makers and business leaders with the knowledge, inspiration, and practical tools to design the fleet of tomorrow.

"Commercial mobility has evolved massively in the last ten years. In the coming ten years, it will change beyond recognition", says Jan-Maarten de Vries, CEO of Bridgestone Mobility Solutions. "I am excited that we are joined by so many great partners, experts, and innovative thinkers to discuss the industry's most pressing questions and jointly move the world towards a more sustainable future".

To open the conference, Jan-Maarten de Vries will take a dynamic look at the rapidly changing world of mobility and the challenges fleets will need to overcome to thrive in this time of constant disruption.

The following keynote speeches will shine a light on the evolving mobility landscape from different angles:

  • Urban mobility in smart cities with Greg Lindsay: The future of urban mobility promises to be filled with scooters, stores, and drones seemingly with a mind of their own. These technologies are already transforming the way we see, understand and get around cities. Greg Lindsay, an internationally known futurist and urbanist, will take a trip through the smart city as it will look in 2032 and explain how to get ready to do business in it.

 

  • The truck of the future with Volta Trucks: From autonomous platooning to alternative fuels and everything in between, technology is changing the trucking sector. The team from Volta Trucks, a cutting-edge manufacturer, will reveal their innovative new electric commercial vehicles and how they differ radically from the traditional urban delivery vehicle.
  • Partnerships: The key that can unlock the full potential of mobility solutions: Experts from Mercedes-Benz Connectivity Services, project44, and EasyPark will discuss how data interconnectivity and integrations between Software-as-a-Service mobility providers will unlock the true, full potential of mobility across the coming decade and what it means for commercial fleets and suppliers.

 

The one-day virtual conference, which is free of charge, will be held simultaneously in 20 countries globally. Alongside the international presentations, local experts including Raghunath Banerjee, VP of Data Solutions at Bridgestone Mobility Solutions will tackle various mobility themes in more than 50 sessions including roundtable discussions, interviews and best-practice presentations. Raghunath will explain, among other things, how data-driven digital trans­form­ation can help with inner-city planning and its role in future mobility.

"This combination of sessions with a global scope from international experts and sessions with valuable insights tailored to each region makes the Webfleet Mobility Conference an event not to miss for any decision-maker in fleet management," concludes Justin Manson, Sales Director of Bridgestone -owned Webfleet Solutions in South Africa.
