International fleet management forum

Co-presented by the Government of Quebec, in collaboration with the City of Montreal, United Kingdom’s Local Authority Plant and Vehicles (LAPV) and the Department of Citywide Administrative Services (DCAS) of New York City.

The first edition of IMPULSION MTL on June 3 and 4 at the Montreal Science Centre follows on the Future Fleet Forum, which held its 2019 edition in London. The Future Fleet Forum is the first international forum dedicated to best practices and emerging technologies in fleet management.

In preparing for this one-of-a-kind event, Propulsion Québec is working closely with leading international partners such as Local Authority Plant and Vehicles (LAPV) in the UK and the Department of Citywide Administrative Services (DCAS) fleet in New York City.

LAPV (Local Authority Plant and Vehicles) is the only UK information source purely dedicated to local authority vehicles and affiliated plant equipment. Appearing four times a year, it offers well-researched technical articles on the latest equipment/technology as well as in-depth interviews with key industry professionals. LAPV is a division of the Local Government portfolio of Hemming Information Services (HIS). HIS is a division of the Hemming Group Ltd, one of the leading independent providers of business-to-business information.

The Department of Citywide Administrative Services (DCAS) supports and unites all City agencies to best serve the public. DCAS provides critical infrastructure and essential resources to ensure that the City functions at its optimal level. Specifically, the agency supports City agencies’ workforce needs in recruiting, hiring, and training City employees; implements and oversees the Civil Service process; provides overall facilities management for 55 public buildings; purchases, sells, and leases real property; implements energy conservation programs throughout City facilities and more.

New York City operates over 30,000 owned and leased vehicles, the largest municipal fleet in the United States. NYC maintains fleet units at 37 main repair locations and has over 400 in-house fueling and 400 separate electric charging locations. More than 2,000 staff work full time in fleet repair and garage operations across over 50 fleet operating agencies and offices. In total, nearly $1 billion is spent annually on fleet repair, fueling and procurement.
