At the 2020 Fleet Forward Experience Ford will discuss the latest news on the all-electric F-150, F-150 hybrid, and all-electric Transit van. 

In the seminar, “Ford’s All-Electric Future of Business,” Yaro Hetman, global director of electric trucks and vans for Team Edison, will review Ford’s electrification solutions for fleet customers. Live Q&A follows this prerecorded seminar. The seminar takes place on Tuesday, Nov. 10 from noon to 1pm EST. 

Then on Wednesday, Nov. 11 from 3:30pm to 4:30pm EST, Travis Hunt, business development manager, Ford Commercial Solutions (FCS), will present “Harnessing OEM-Grade Data from Ford Commercial Solutions.” Hunt will discuss how OEM-grade data transferred directly from the vehicle to the cloud can improve operational effectiveness for the next generation of fleets.  

“We’re excited to hear how Ford will continue commercial vehicle leadership into an electric future. Yaro Hetman serves as the ‘voice of the customer’ for Ford’s future vehicles and helped launch Ford Transit in North America.” said Chris Brown, conference chair. 

“As well, Travis Hunt is ready to share insights into this new wave of OEM-sourced data on GPS location, fuel use, and vehicle health updates without the need for third-party hardware, management, or installation downtime. This will be crucial for all fleets moving forward.”
