Fleet Consulting Services can be broken down into three broad categories- Acquisition and Disposal, Operational Management, and Risk Management. These also form the basis of any fleet management program, whether formalized with well-defined policies, roles, and procedures in place, or evolving over time to meet immediate needs.

There are numerous ways to go about improving a fleet management program, but a thorough study of current fleet practices is probably the most valuable asset a fleet consultant can provide your organization. Only by understanding everything about how your fleet is being managed can improvement goals for the future be established and strategies for achieving them formulated.

Since driving a vehicle is often an emotional as well as practical matter for the driver, organizational philosophy is of high importance when formulation fleet management policies. Does your organization value employee morale over bottom line savings, or is savings alone the primary concern? This one item can have a profound effect on how fleet decisions are made, from the type of vehicle selected to how accidents are investigated and resolved.

Fleet management is like other specialized management practices, possessing its own industry specific terms and accepted strategies that are applied more often than others. But the truth is the terminology is not nearly as important as the results, and what works for the majority is not always the best solution. Questions like what fleet vehicle best represents an organization’s image, or makes a driver happy behind the wheel, are nearly impossible to evaluate on a spreadsheet. It’s situations like these where the services of a talented fleet consultant can make all the difference.
