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

UK fleets are covering fewer miles in their light commercial vehicles (LCVs) according to this year’s Fleet200 survey, which uncovers a significant drop in average mileages.

The 2020 data shows that, on average, Fleet200 vans cover 20,500 miles per year. That’s an annual reduction of around 7,000 miles, compared with last year’s study, no doubt affected by the drop in business for many companies during the coronavirus lockdown, which overlapped with the data gathering for the Fleet200 survey. 

However, the reduction clearly started before 2020, with fleets improving their route optimisation and efficiencies.
