How to reduce fleet costs


To unlock hidden cost savings there are three key areas you should review –  people, your fleet composition, and your operations.

Empowering Your People

Up to 50% of the Total Cost of Ownership of fleet vehicles is determined by the driver’s behaviour. By monitoring the way your team is performing behind the wheel, you can focus on behaviours that are driving up costs, such as needless fuel consumption, dangerous driving or misuse of vehicles. Want to cut those down to size without taking jobs off the schedule? Start with your drivers.

Modern vehicles are kitted out with all kinds of powerful features that maximise safety, ease of use and, crucially, fuel economy. Could it be time for an upgrade? Do a full, deep fleet review and compare what you’re currently using with what’s now on the market.

Your operations

Regardless of how well you’re doing, there’s always room for improvement. Even the most successful fleet manager is constantly looking at their workflow, drivers, processes, vehicles and route planning to see where changes and upgrades can be made that will boost business.
