Fleetmaster would like to thank all those who attended the Fleetmaster AFV Safety Forum on 21st July 2023. The day was a great success, and we are extremely grateful for all of the wonderful people that attended the event.
Those who attended made the event and our jobs very enjoyable by being the great, respectful and knowledgeable people that you always are. We hope that you had a great and informative time.
For the morning of the event, we were in Dewsbury Rams’ Royal Suite where we had the great opportunity to listen to the knowledge and experience of David Petts from Ford, Steve Winter from Appleridge Consultancy Ltd, James Rooney from Network Rail and Matthew Harris from Centrica. The attendees and staff thoroughly enjoyed the talks from the keynote speakers and the information was truly invaluable as we look to move towards Zero Emissions in our industry. A huge thank you to those who spoke!
In the afternoon we then moved outside where there were various vehicle displays and activities for our attendees to experience. Another huge thank you to all who supplied vehicles for the event. It was a great chance for the attendees to learn more about, and also experience, electric vehicles. Below this article you can see some images from the vehicles we had on display on the day!
Finally, thank you so much for the positive feedback we have received from the event! It means the world to us that not only did you attend, but that you also really enjoyed the day and took the time to let us know about it! You can read some of the kind comments below as well as some advice from Steve Winter for those transitioning to Alternatively Fuelled Vehicles.
