EUFMC Attendees Say

WE ASKED OUR 2021 ATTENDEES:

How do EUFMC educational sessions provide valuable and timely information for you professionally and your fleet operation?

The educational sessions provide me with the opportunity to get a sense of what other managers are dealing with. There’s no sense in reinventing the wheel. They will have solutions that work for them that may work for you. It’s always nice to network with other fleet managers at EUFMC because they can help you with situations that you may encounter down the road.
