Some days are bigger than others. Today is one of them, because today we are launching Global fleet market. It is a unique RFI tool and search engine that will help customers in the fleet and mobility industry find their ideal supplier. “It will radically improve the way they do business,” says Caroline Thonnon, CEO of Nexus Communication, publisher of Global Fleet and Fleet Europe.
Caroline, why did you launch Global Fleet Marketplace? Caroline Thonnon, CEO“Any successful fleet and mobility initiative starts with a good RFI (Request for Information, editor’s note). But as any fleet and mobility customer knows, finding the right supplier is a bit like looking for a book in a library with the lights off. A “manual” RFI takes a lot of time and effort, and even if you find a solution: who’s to say there isn’t a better solution for your needs around the corner? »
“That’s why at Nexus Communication, as a trusted source of industry information, we get so many requests from fleet decision makers around the world to help them identify the right suppliers. Now we can offer them a tool that meets their needs: Global Fleet Marketplace.
“It’s a very timely solution, because right now the Fleet & Mobility ecosystem is changing rapidly, with new vendors constantly offering new products and services. Just think of the electrification trend, or the mobility as a service, to new financial and business models…Global Fleet Marketplace will help fleet and mobility customers identify who is doing what and where.”
Fair, fast and transparent
Customers can search by business name, business type, and location. Above all, the tool is free to use. Currently, more than 270 vendors have joined Global Fleet Marketplace – an impressive number, which is growing every day. Over time, Global Fleet Marketplace will become the go-to online platform for fleet and mobility customers looking for the right products and services for their business.
Is it free to use and join Global Fleet Marketplace? carolina“Yes, use is free for fleet and mobility customers. We encourage as many suppliers as possible to join the platform. Being a member is also free for all providers in our ecosystem! »
Can you tell us a bit more about how you developed Global Fleet Marketplace? carolina“We have developed Global Fleet Marketplace in collaboration with different focus groups, different customers and suppliers, to meet their needs. The development was guided by their recommendations. So, without exaggeration, I can say: Global Fleet Marketplace was developed by the industry, for the industry. So not just by customers, but also by suppliers. This is why Global Fleet Marketplace is such a useful lead generation tool for vendors. »
What does the future of Global Fleet Marketplace look like? carolina“There’s a lot more to come!” Global Fleet Marketplace has the ambition to become the one stop shop for the entire ecosystem of fleet, automotive and mobility industries. In a few weeks, we will also launch the Search by Objective function. This will allow users to find, compare and contact vendors who can help them achieve a strategic goal, such as electrifying their fleet or increasing their fleet safety. »
