A diverse and qualified team of

fleet and mobility experts from across the world.

Introduction

Few industries have changed as greatly or as rapidly as the automotive and mobility industry in the early stages of the 21st century.

 

Big data, vehicle connectivity and demands for mobility rather than simple fleet management have produced an environment that would be unrecognisable ten years ago.

 

The industry sees a blurring of lines between operational capability and human resource management driven by technology and demanding of efficiencies.

Compounding the difficulty is the global mismatch of development and innovation. Trends that are emerging in one region of the world are already standardised in another.

 

Connector brings together a team of experts with a diverse range of skills and experience from across the globe. We have a presence in every major market and a level of understand that is second to none.

One point of contact for all your mobility needs, regardless of topic or geography. 

Welcome to Connector

Corporate Partners

In addition to our team of fleet and mobility experts, Connector has selected a small team of partners to provide professional advice across a wide range of topics. These are companies that excel by innovation, reputation and knowledge across a range of fields, chosen by Connector to ensure that we connect you to the right advice.

Our Unique Position

We are an alliance of certified fleet experts, located across the world, offering services globally to the mobility ecosystem.

 

One Stop Shopping Platform

Corporate Fleet related questions are rarely isolated and limited to one specific topic. A Car Policy review can generate questions about employee taxation; a global tender might need a project manager. This is why Connector offers a multi-disciplinary approach to traditional consulting. Our Experts come from different backgrounds within the Supply Chain or have been managing large fleets themselves. Also, Connector is linked to global Corporate Partners, such as BDO and Frost & Sullivan, to ensure that we can answer any question that might arise when we provide you with advice. Your Advantage? Only one point of contact for any concern and the involvement of real subject matter experts.

Certified Services

Each of our Experts has a successful track record in the Fleet ecosystem and are recognized, professionals. Connector also applies a four-eye principle on each deliverable; before submitting the outcome of a Consulting job to the Client, all the documents, calculations and recommendations are verified by at least one other Expert. Connector also spends time with the Client to make sure there’s a good understanding of the expectations – this results in a Statement of Work that is mutually agreed by the Client and Connector. The four-eye principle also checks whether the Client receives exactly what she/he expects from Connector.

 
 
It all starts with a chat!
 
Connector's Global Expert Members can assist you in any location, on any topic. They receive support from our selected Corporate Partners in order to offer you a high-value and comprehensive solution and execution.
 
You can apply for information by sharing with us the contents of the consultation in the New Request Form or simply be reaching out to us. Connector will set up quickly a preliminary meeting with you to understand your goals and expectations.

Connector Europe

Director

Robbert van Muyden

My name is Robbert van Muyden. I am working in the Fleet & Mobility Industry for decades but never found a more interesting & challenging period than where we are in right now. Talking to my Global Network (as well clients as vendors) all are facing the same turmoil and asking the same questions. One thing is sure, the speed of change will only increase. Besides our expertise in Fleet Management, MAAS (which is already becoming a commodity), electrification, telematic solutions, Mobility Integrators, Fleet on demand, etc., we also carefully watch what’s happening in the tech, HR and real estate world. The interaction from the latter with the Fleet world is unavoidable.

Looking at Europe (Globally for sure) there is no one size fits all solution, many market and cultural differences will make it not easy to find the ONE OFF THE SHELF solution. Parallels and common denominators can be found everywhere and are easier when you are e.g. developing basic fleet strategies or are making vendor assessments. But when it comes to taking your Employee Mobility to a revolutionary stage, it takes more than two to tango for sure.
