Fleet200 Round Table: Priorities, challenges and initiatives for 2013/14

  • Reducing costs remain a priority for fleet operators
  • One fleet operator has considered extending replacement cycles to five years to achieve cost savings but has decided “it is a step too far”
  • Telematics is being trialled by one company with a view to saving on fuel, SMR and incident management costs. The fuel savings alone have the potential to pay for the system.
  •  The challenge the company trialling telematics faces is having the resource to analyse the data.
  • Safety initiatives are being introduced such as enhanced livery to improve vehicle visibility at night.
  • The grey fleet is a concern with one company seeing its cash taker numbers increase due to a company acquisition.
  • Companies are also looking to better control car hire spend and grey fleet claims through expense systems.
