Long-term partners will join forces once again to provide insights, advice, and skills on EV deployment to fleet operators at the Association of Fleet Professionals’ first annual conference.

Today we announce our attendance at the Association of Fleet Professionals’ (AFP) inaugural conference. Joined by partner Allstar Business Solutions, UK’s leading fuel and EV charging management company, both will take centre stage to share their expert advice around managing the payment process of charging an electric vehicle fleet at home, in public and at the workplace.  

Ashley Tate, Co-founder and CEO at Mina, will join a panel session on EV charging infrastructure at home and the office, focusing on EV hardware and software solutions for fleets, what their options are and how fleets can manage the complexity. With the numbers of public charge points in the UK still at a low level, Allstar’s VP of Strategy, Tom Rowlands, will also deliver expert insights on the best payment and EV highway charging solutions for fleets during the, ‘Delivering a Smart EV Highway Charging Solution for Your Vehicles’ panel session. 

Ashley and Tom will together deliver a keynote session for the event, held at The British Motor Museum, Gaydon, on 18th May, outlining the unique EV charging payment solution that Mina and Allstar have come together to deliver and the impact the steadfast partners will have on fleets making the switch to EV. 

Ashley Tate, CEO and Co-founder, Mina commented: “We’re proud to be supporting the AFP’s inaugural conference. It’s so important to have an environment which brings together such forward thinking businesses who are looking to electrify their fleets.

“Simplifying the payments of EV charging is the single most important part of the transition, and so I’m looking forward to being able to share advice which will enable these businesses to switch to EV without having the usual complexities that go along with it.”

Tom Rowlands, VP of Strategy at Allstar Business Solutions, adds: “Together Allstar Business Solutions and Mina have been working to advance fleet products that will support the widespread adoption of EVs for businesses by simplifying the charging experience for both fleet managers and drivers. As an industry we are on the precipice of revolution for EV adoption, so we are delighted to join the AFP’s first annual conference to knowledge share and provide advice to fleets on how to manage the transition, the tools that are available to them, and maintaining an EV fleet long term.”

This announcement comes just after FLEETCOR’s follow on investment in Mina and the launch of Allstar Homecharge, powered by Mina, taking the relationship from strength to strength. The solution helps to simplify payment for EV fleets charging at home, with accurate payments going direct to drivers’ energy suppliers along with tariff management and just one monthly invoice, with complete visibility of charging insights for the fleet.
