Leading the charge

We’re all aware of the importance of actively considering a transition towards an EV future among our fleet operations, but putting it into practice can often present more short term challenges and headaches.

As with anything, collaboration really is the key to driving meaningful change among your workplace and as a peak industry body AfMA is committed to engaging with our members and guests in useful and practical ways.

AfMA is currently part of the core working group of Charge Together Fleets whose purpose is to assist fleet & sustainability managers and other business stakeholders transition to electric vehicles and future mobility models.

One of the main deliverables of Charge Together Fleets is an online platform that will host a Learning Management System, Fleet Toolbox and Communication Centre. The website www.chargetogether.com is already live and educational modules and various tools will soon be completed and available for your benefit.

“I encourage all AfMA members and contacts to share this link with anyone in the industry that has an interest in EV’s vehicles, technology and infrastructure,” AfMA Executive Director Mace Hartley said.

“Doing so will keep you up to date with the overall progress of the program and importantly the webinars that have already proven very helpful and popular.”
