Merchants Fleet announced on Aug. 18 that its annual Fleet Summit will take place at Merchants’ headquarters in Hooksett, New Hampshire, from Sept. 12-13.
The event brings together experts across the fleet ecosystem to network, learn, and collaborate on the hottest topics in the fleet industry.
“Fleet Summit is an important event that provides our clients with the opportunity to connect and collaborate with some of the biggest names in the industry on topics that really matter to their fleets,” said Brendan P. Keegan, president/CEO of Merchants Fleet in a recent news release. “Supply chain disruption, economic headwinds, innovations in AI, and mounting pressure to operate more sustainably are all at the top of the list this year, and we look forward to bringing our clients and partners together at the Fleet Summit, to build endurance for managing these complex dynamics.”
This year’s event will include presentations from companies such as Nissan, Bridgestone, Stellantis, Motorq, Geotab, and Allstate who will discuss their roles in fleet electrification, provide insights on the state of the auto industry supply chain, and review emerging transportation technology trends.
Attendees will also get a preview of Merchant’s new ClearCharge Drop Station— a portable power solution designed to meet on-the-go charging needs for fleets, and the opportunity to test dress a variety of EV models on the NH Motor Speedway racetrack.
