Many international fleet managers are missing out on substantial manufacturer discounts and reduced costs of ownership because they do not have the necessary consolidated data and information about the running of their fleet on a global basis, Fleet Logistics suggests.
It’s recently added new data and reporting functionality to its global reporting solution, Fleet Global, which aims to provide international fleet managers with the ammunition to maximise their buying power across their global fleet by optimising discounts and reducing TCO.
Amongst its uses, Fleet Global helps fleet managers accurately quantify how many of each make and model its organisation buys in each of the countries it operates in, and thus to negotiate more substantial discounts with manufacturers at a global level based on this information.
“This is becoming increasingly crucial as more and more fleets are organized on a global level. But without this data, and without this degree of transparency, the international fleet manager forfeits substantial value,” said Peter Soliman, CEO at Fleet Logistics.
“This approach also applies to other fleet commodities such as insurance, tires or any other aspect of fleet operations the organisation is responsible for buying itself. Without the right consolidated data, the organisation will never be able to maximise its buying power on a global level.”
Fleet Logistics, which has over 100,000 cars under management across Europe, launched Fleet Global last year as a web-based based global reporting platform, aimed at providing international fleet managers with a totally transparent picture of operations, data and financial information at local, regional and global levels.
Currently, fleet users are using Fleet Global to upload and analyse fleet data from over 50 different countries around the world.
