Fleet Management Strategy
To develop a genuinely effective vision for your fleet, the fleet management strategy must link in with your organisation’s other strategic priorities. The strategy must be considered as part of your organisation’s overall approach to asset management and should also link in with your environmental aims.
Vehicle drivers, passengers and other users can offer a broad perspective on the strategic direction of fleet management. Consultation with these groups of users will contribute to your strategy being well informed.
The strategy should also look outside your organisation to consider the benefits of working with external bodies to provide the most effective and efficient fleet.
Organisations should aim to reduce the number and length of journeys. This produces financial savings, reduces the impact on the environment and reduces the risk of accidents.
Finally, it is critical to recognise that things change and therefore your strategy must be regularly reviewed to ensure it remains up-to-date and relevant.
