The professional management of a vehicle fleet and the management of all the suppliers involved is a skill all its own. The plethora of transport modes and options now coming onto the market mean that you have lots of new challenges to face, not least in terms of supplier management, information management and behavioural nudging of drivers. We know you want to do business with vendors who are a good fit for you and who perform well. Your The Fleetmanagers consultants have the right knowledge and experience to support you in those domains, help you determine your strategy and achieve your goals for you.
Benchmarking your lease company for you
If cost reductions are to be achieved, it is vital to have a sound overview of how your lease company is doing vis-à-vis the agreements you made with them, and set against the market as a whole. The Fleetmanagers will show you where there is room for improvement and what potential risks you face.
Naturally, our services don't stop there; we will be glad to help you actually reduce those risks and boost your performance. Benchmarking is an undertaking that can save you a six-figure sum; having it done for you costs just a fraction of that amount.
Things we benchmark
- Pricing of new lease calculations
- Pricing of contract adjustments
- Contract agreements made and contract fulfilment
Company car policies
At The Fleetmanagers, we love clarity. We are of the opinion that clarity can only be a good thing for the working relationship between all the parties involved. And that includes your company car policy. We have in mind here the set of agreements your staff make with you as employer regarding the use of their leased car. A good company car policy is one with no grey areas; it has to be unambiguous and comprehensive. Other key requirements for your policy are that it should allow you to foster good driving behaviour, contain risks and have the effect of managing your costs.
Enjoy a flexible transport policy
Today's employee greatly prizes flexibility and freedom of choice. Get your transport policy right and you can offer the flexibility they desire. Transport policies nowadays often specify other matters to do with alternative modes of transport, such as employee use of public transport and shared cars.
It is also the place where you can document the agreements you make with staff about transport budgeting, with the employee being free to spend their own monthly amount on various modes of transport as they see fit and being encouraged to rethink transport costs. Having a transport policy can have a beneficial effect on employee satisfaction, with you getting something else out of it: a substantial contribution to your environmental and sustainability goals. A win-win.
The Fleetmanagers help businesses and organisations evaluate, develop and review their company car policies and/or transport policies. Get us involved if you want to verify your approach, seek advice or rewrite your scheme.
