Mobility Optimization Series, Part 5: Mobility is a Business and Business Never Sleeps

    Portland Head Lighthouse and the Atlantic Ocean at Fort Williams Park in Cape Elizabeth, Maine.

    AIRINC recently interviewed six Mobility leaders to learn how they are optimizing their Mobility functions. This interview highlights the fifth of our 6-part series, where we discussed how Mobility is a business. 

    Vini is the new Mobility leader at a logistics/delivery company. He inherited a team model where business units are supported by Mobility managers and specialists within their region. Today, process and sometimes vendors vary by region. However, Vini believes that Mobility could add more value by streamlining operations and increasing access to support.

    His plan is to streamline vendors and processes as much as possible and train team members so they can support all global business units. He is effectively creating a 24-hour Mobility function that aligns to his industry’s business model.

    Instead of regional immigration and tax specialists, Mobility will become a team of generalists, all savvy on compliance, with a focus on serving the business in a timely, efficient manner.

    We appreciate Vini for sharing their short-term and long-term strategies with us so we can showcase insights and inspiration for professionals embarking on their own Mobility optimization journey.
