New York City joins CILT benchmarking club

New York City has become the first international member of Palmark, the Public Authority Benchmarking Club run by the Chartered Institute of Logistics & Transport.

Keith T Kerman, deputy commissioner, chief fleet officer, New York City said: “New York City government operates the largest municipal fleet in the United States with over 29,000 units including NYPD, FDNY and Sanitation fleets. In June 2016, NYC presented at a Future Fleets Forum in the UK and met with leaders throughout the UK fleet industry. To continue this collaboration and help share good ideas and best practices, we’re pleased to become Palmark members, the Institute’s Public Authority benchmarking club”

O’Donovan Waste Disposal, the UK waste management company, is to extend its sponsorship of Palmark to a second year. Managing director Jacqueline O’Donovan said: “By continuing to sponsor Palmark, we hope more Public Sector fleets will get involved in this worthy benchmarking club, share best practices and pursue operational excellence at every opportunity.”
