Identifying vehicle suitability in your fleet

When was the last time you reviewed your fleet in order to identify the suitability of each individual vehicle for the jobs that it is being used for?

Often vehicles are better designed for one purpose than another and can deliver significantly better fuel efficiency by doing certain tasks and avoiding others.

For example, a small runabout vehicle is a much better option for short inner-city trips than a large SUV, while at the same time this sort of car might not be ideal for a long trip on the open road.

By identifying which vehicles in your fleet are best for certain tasks, you can significantly save on car fuel consumption expenses and reduce your fleet maintenance costs as well.

Fleet services are excellent for this purpose, as they can utilise sophisticated reporting tools in order to identify where vehicles might be better suited to certain jobs.

At the same time, these services can provide you with the technology you need to set up a pool booking system which allows you to centralise vehicle management and establish priority settings for certain cars.

This way you can make sure that the most ideally suited and fuel efficient vehicles in your fleet are booked out first, while at the same time drastically reducing the risk of confusion or double booking.

You wouldn't ask your company accountant to perform human resources tasks as this is not the area in which they are most proficient, so why would the vehicles in your fleet be any different?

Successful organisations need to be constantly on the hunt for ways to improve efficiency and reduce expenses, seeking to identify areas of waste no matter how big or small they may seem.

That is why fleet services, which can provide you with comprehensive data and analysis of your organisation's vehicle fleet, are such a useful tool in a competitive modern business landscape.
