Martin Drake at Lease Europe

The fleet sector is set to undergo a revolution, with changes driven by advances in both automotive and non-automotive technology, evolving customer demands and market conditions creating new threats and opportunities for vehicle leasing companies in equal measure. That is was the vision set out by Martin Drake of DRIVE Software Solutions as he presented to some of the top executives in Europe’s largest leasing companies at the recent Leaseurope forum in Brussels.

The mobility landscape across Europe is changing, driven by a number of factors. Growing populations are increasing demands on an already constrained transport infrastructure that also has to cope with the changing needs of an ageing demographic. Old models of vehicle ownership and traditional travel habits cannot keep up with emerging requirements for seamless, integrated travel options. Individuals, funders, and organizations need to embrace the new concept of “total” or “intelligent” mobility, which involves making greater use of technology, and in particular data about travel patterns, to create a new approach offering more choice and greater flexibility about how people get around.
