May 2008, Government Fleet - Feature

by Staff

Public sector fleet managers are forced to navigate a maze of rising fuel costs, shrinking budgets, green fleet-conversion, liability and safety concerns, as well as the near-constant introduction of ever-evolving technologies.

Guidance through challenges of a changing industry can be found at the upcoming GFX conference, "Inspiring Innovation: Meeting Fleet Challenges With Creative Solutions," presented by Government Fleet, at the Town and Country Resort & Convention Center in San Diego, June 8-11.

GF surveyed hundreds of public sector fleet managers and assembled a board of 12 of the most experienced to develop a conference by fleet managers for fleet managers.

GFX has partnered with the following organizations to provide comprehensive training and networking at GFX:
