'Business travel by motor vehicle' is a high cost area of overhead, where effective management makes a very positive difference. Research indicates that the total costs of mobility to the business will be significantly lower where there are sound, well-designed policies that address the specific circumstances, than where fleet control and grey-fleet activity is relatively unmanaged/ uncontrolled. These very real cost savings can be up to 15% of the total annual mobility budgets!
The main objective of a fleet manager - irrespective of their actual job-title - must be to run the fleet of vehicles cost-effectively, safely, and fully in line with the needs of the business. Similarly, the use of employee-owned cars for business travel - the grey fleet - needs its own set of controls that are closely allied to the fleet system. This may not seem very daunting, but if you look closer, it’'s much more complex.
- How safe is "safely"?
- Is "cost-effective" much more than simply achieving big front end discounts?
- What are the real needs of the business in terms of its transport - and how well do current arrangements really meet these needs?
