Who are Australasian Fleet Management Association (AFMA)?

The Australasian Fleet Management Association (AfMA) is the peak industry body representing around 550 members across Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia.

AfMA’s primary goal is to promote fleet management as a true vocation. It does this through on-going professional development forums, an annual fleet conference & exhibition and through its relationship with Swinburne University (Graduate Certificate in Business Management (Fleet Management) and a soon to be released Diploma of Leadership & Management contextualised for fleet management). AfMA also provides a range of tools for its members, such as the Fleet Management Guide, and is an advocate for fleet management and thereby provides fleet managers with a voice on matters affecting industry.

What does road safety mean to Australasian Fleet Management Association?

With a membership base responsible for around 800,000 assets, representing light and heavy fleet in addition to other auxiliary equipment such as motor bikes and yellow plant, for AfMA’s members safety is at the heart of any successful fleet management system. For AfMA’s membrers, the fleet manager is at the coal face because they are responsbile for providing their organisation with the necessary transport tools which allows their workers to safely deliver their services.

To support its members AfMA produced the Safer Motoring Guide many years ago and continues to advocate for safety for all road users. AfMA connects safety specialists/experts with fleet managers through its professional development forums and annual conference & exhibition in addition to recognising best practice at its annual awards night.
