CLM Fleet Management Solutions
What is fleet management? And what are the benefits of an outsourced fleet management solution?
One of the largest expenses your business will see is your company’s fleet. Sourcing, acquiring, maintaining, and managing your fleet is a costly and crucial aspect of your business. And one that you need to get right.
Get it wrong and vehicle fleet management can become a burden on your company’s current resource.
Use the information below as your initial tool kit to start managing your company cars more effectively, whatever the size of the operation. We understand that you may not have a dedicated fleet manager or that the need for internal support is increasing. With experienced advisors on hand at CLM, your fleet vehicle operations will be managed effectively. The team at CLM will shoulder the burden for you.
What Is Fleet Management?
At its core, a fleet management solution includes the organisation and overseeing of a company’s fleet of vehicles. Effective fleet management requires a target-oriented approach to the supervision of your fleet, taking into account your current resources as well as the internal and external factors that may have an effect on the management of your fleet operations.
Outsourcing Vehicle Fleet Management
Thought about outsourcing vehicle fleet management, but not sure where to start? It can often help to pull together a list of objectives required. Use the below to help you start mapping out what you want to achieve from outsourcing your fleet management.
Your vehicle fleet management plan should form part of your overall business plan and include objectives to:
- Improve efficiency across the business
- Reduce overheads
- Benefit from a new product or service
- Improve the organisation’s green credentials
- Expand your offering and introduce new field-based staff
By piecing together your business goals, you can then begin to map out the fleet management solutions you’ll require from your fleet management provider. Using our expertise, CLM can help you to pinpoint and quickly address your areas of weakness first, whether that means sourcing vehicles more efficiently, making cost savings, or reducing costly and resource intensive administration. Once your internal goals are fully established, that leaves us with the information necessary to build a complete fleet solution that meets your needs.
