AfMA Industry Development Program

In a move geared towards securing the future of fleet management, the Australasian Fleet Management Association (AfMA) proudly introduces the Industry Development Program (IDP). This visionary initiative has been developed by AfMA and its Corporate Partners (Geotab, Autorola, Pedders Suspension & Brakes, RedBook, Ampol and Zurich Resilience Solutions) to address the critical need for succession planning within the industry, ensuring a seamless transition for the forthcoming generation of fleet professionals.



Succession planning for your organisation and the industry we know and love! 

The industry development program is specifically designed to support organisations with succession planning. It aims to empower the forthcoming generation of fleet managers by providing them with knowledge and a strong network, preparing them to step into the shoes of our seasoned professionals. The program aspires to equip them with the skills and tools needed to drive the continuous growth of our industry, with an emphasis on constant operational improvement, fleet safety, and sustainability. 

Program Goals & Objectives

Our goal is to offer individuals a comprehensive understanding of the wider industry landscape, emerging technologies, and innovative services, thereby fostering an environment where they can enhance their skills and discover their unique position within the industry. 

By nurturing the growth of participants’ abilities, we not only benefit the individuals themselves, but also their families, peers, and organisations, eventually contributing to the prosperity of the entire industry. 

What is the Industry Development Program

The IDP is an initiative developed by AfMA and its Corporate Partners (Geotab, Autorola, Pedders Suspension & Brakes, RedBook, Ampol and Zurich Resilience Solutions). This visionary group will fund $200,000 worth of free tickets to AfMA’s annual Australasian Fleet Conference & Exhibition which showcases innovative technologies and practices in the industry, offering an invaluable opportunity for industry practitioners to learn and evolve. 

AfMA member organisations, based on their size, will be given 1, 2, or 3 free tickets annually to this event. This provision enables these organisations to create internal incentive programs for their operational and support staff who are involved in the management of their own fleets or those of their customers if they are a supplier member. 

The program specifically excludes primary Fleet Managers, their Managers, BDMs, and Salespeople of any level. Instead, it is intended for the support staff that make up the second or third tier within the organisation. This may include individuals such as WH&S committee members, workshop mechanics/controllers, policy officers, environmental officers, and others. The IDP aims to boost the professional development of these essential support roles within the fleet industry.
