CLM Fleet Management has produced a free-of-charge guide aimed at helping organisations of all sizes develop a fleet policy.
The guide sets out how an organisation, including those that do not recognise their vehicles as a ‘fleet’, should deal with these considerations and who is responsible within the business for each of them.
Areas it tackles include:
- Private vehicle usage – grey fleet
- Fuel policy and management
- Vehicle maintenance and repair
- Accident management and breakdowns
- Overseas travel
- Insurance and authorised drivers
- Taxation of vehicles
- Environmental policy
- Driver declarations
John Lawrence, managing director of CLM, said: “This new guide has been developed to help businesses of all sizes create a vehicle fleet policy that reflects their specific needs and objectives.
“It can be used by fleet professionals or by any other individual with a degree of responsibility for the operation of the organisation’s vehicles, including those that may not have realised that they operate what constitutes a fleet.
“A well constructed policy is a vital means of controlling the costs associated with running a fleet of any size, and investing time and effort in its development and communication is of extreme importance to any business.
“We hope users of the guide find its content to be of use and value in helping them frame the ideal fleet policy for their business.”
