Fleet200: Growing number of fleets expecting to have fewer cars

The following article was published in the September 24 issue of Fleet News. Read the full article.

One-in-six fleets expects the number of company cars they operate to decrease over the coming 12 months, new data suggests. This represents a dramatic change compared with just a few months ago.

The Pulse analysis in quarter two, taken from a survey of 300-plus fleet decision-makers, shows that 17% of respondents are now predicting car fleet operations to reduce.

Just one-in-50 respondents – some 2% – were predicting a decrease at the start of the year, while those expecting car numbers to increase has almost halved from 43% to 28%. Nevertheless, while the gap has closed (from +41% to +11%), fleet operators are still, overall, anticipating growth in their car fleets.
