Lutz Hansen to Explain the International RFI-RFQ Process at NAFA International Academy

Imag­ine cre­at­ing a glob­al fleet per­spec­tive that increas­es effi­cien­cy, reduces costs, and saves your cor­po­ra­tion mil­lions.  That’s exact­ly what hap­pened with Bay­er Busi­ness Ser­vices GMbH of Lev­erkusen, Ger­many. Dur­ing NAFA’s 3rd Annu­al Inter­na­tion­al Fleet Acad­e­my, Lutz Hansen, Pur­chas­ing Fleet Man­age­ment Ser­vices for Bay­er, will dis­cuss how his com­pa­ny cre­at­ed and then used a glob­al report­ing tool to turn its RFI and RFQ process­es upside down – result­ing in tremen­dous sav­ings for the 24,000-vehicle fleet.  Hansen’s can­did dis­cus­sion is exclu­sive­ly for fleet man­agers.  No sup­pli­ers or media will be able to attend this spe­cial closed-door ses­sion.

Hansen is the lat­est fleet expert to join the fac­ul­ty at NAFA’s 3rd Annu­al Inter­na­tion­al Fleet Acad­e­my, a 3-day con­fer­ence designed specif­i­cal­ly to meet the needs of those who man­age fleets out­side of the Unit­ed States and Cana­da.  The con­fer­ence will take place Octo­ber 21–23, 2013 at Loews Ven­tana Canyon in Tuc­son, AZ with a stel­lar ros­ter of lead­ing glob­al fleet pro­fes­sion­als that includes for­mer NAFA Pres­i­dent Gayle PrattJoe LaRosa, NAFA’s cur­rent Inter­na­tion­al Vice Pres­i­dent; Joe Car­reira (the 2012 Inter­na­tion­al Fleet Man­ag­er of the Year); Gio­van­ni Tor­tori­ci (the Pres­i­dent of the Ital­ian Asso­ci­a­tion of Man­agers Buy­ers and Used Cars — AIAGA); Steven Saltz­giv­er, Vice Pres­i­dent — Fleet Oper­a­tions, North Amer­i­ca;  and Kevin Fish­er, CAFM, Vice Pres­i­dent Strate­gic Fleet Oper­a­tions, ARAMARK.

The RFI-RFQ process­es are fur­ther exam­ined dur­ing two addi­tion­al ses­sions:

What an OEM Expects and What They Deliv­er in Return – Rep­re­sen­ta­tives from major glob­al OEM sup­pli­ers dis­cuss their per­spec­tives on the ten­der process­es used by fleet man­agers to secure vehi­cles.

What a Fleet Man­age­ment Com­pa­ny Expects and What They Deliv­er in Return – Rep­re­sen­ta­tives from major fleet man­age­ment com­pa­nies dis­cuss their per­spec­tives on the ten­der process­es used by fleet man­agers to secure vehi­cles.

In addi­tion to over 15 edu­ca­tion­al ses­sions, NAFA’s Inter­na­tion­al Fleet Acad­e­my offers exclu­sive net­work­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties and a cock­tail recep­tion and din­ner each night. Ear­ly-bird reg­is­tra­tion is $650 for NAFA mem­bers and $1,105 for non-mem­bers. After August 16, reg­is­tra­tion costs are $799 for NAFA mem­bers and $1,550 for non-mem­bers. Fleet pro­fes­sion­als may save $200 off the reg­is­tra­tion costs by join­ing NAFA as they reg­is­ter.

Atten­dees receive sev­er­al val­ue-added edu­ca­tion­al items to take back to the office includ­ing a ready-to-use exec­u­tive sum­ma­ry; free sub­scrip­tion to Inter­na­tion­al Fleet World mag­a­zine; the new­ly pub­lished NAFA’s Glob­al Fleet Guide; and valu­able check­lists for poli­cies, RFIs, and RFQs. All total, it’s a resource pack­age val­ued at $2,500 — well worth the reg­is­tra­tion costs alone.
