What Is Fleet Management Consulting?
Most people have heard of management consulting but some wonder about what fleet management consulting is all about.
Lets start with fleet management – at a high level, it is the set of processes and procedures required to manage all fleet information and fleet vehicle assets from acquisition through to disposal - the fleet asset lifecycle.
Optimal fleet management ensures the delivery of safe, fit for purpose, reliable, compliant and efficient mobile workplace solutions.
As fleet costs are generally a major expense of any business, not for profit organisation or government entity it is critical that the motor vehicle fleet be structured and managed effectively to support the organisations’ strategic objectives, while keeping costs under control.
In any cases, these organisations have to rely on staff with a range of other duties to manage their motor vehicle fleet, often without providing any specialised training or expertise to develop their understanding of fleet management key drivers.
While these staff may employ their best efforts, sometimes fleet operating costs get out of control, and critical risk management aspects are not fully considered until a major issue arises.
