Licence Bureau calls on organisations to get to grips with grey fleet

Malcolm Maycock

Licence Bureau is calling on organisations to get to grips with their grey fleets as it sees companies continue to struggle to come to terms with drivers using their own vehicles for business use.

The company, which has launched a Q&A on its website to help companies manage their grey fleet, says that the majority of companies it asks do not know how many of their employees use their own vehicle for business use.

Malcolm Maycock, managing director of Licence Bureau, said: "(This is) not because they are complacent or that they do not realise the importance of grey fleet compliance, but because they often struggle to establish internal processes that truly get to grips with all aspects of grey fleet management.”

He added: "It’s all about getting to the root cause of a company’s grey fleet challenge and that means establishing exacting information about their drivers and their cars.

"Once this has been checked in detail then keeping on top of the ongoing status of your grey fleet can be achieved through our online portal which automatically reminds drivers about key dates such as MOTs and insurance renewals.”
