Fleet Managers these days’ work in a very competitive environment with many fleet companies in the market providing a similar product offering. These businesses are vying for customers in the same pool and what separates one from the other comes down to fleet strategies. In this blog we take a look at some of the strategies that contribute to the success of fleet companies and the methods that are employed by smart Fleet Managers.
Keeping up with technology
With technology around fleet management becoming increasingly sophisticated, if you want to ensure that your fleet management strategies are still ahead of the competition you need to stay clued up. Using technology, you could be speeding up processes, strengthening communication and minimising risk through predictive analytics. You can track maintenance, be updated on where your vehicles are at any given time, and get updates on driver behaviour. If you aren’t using it, aren’t you worried that your competitors are?

A knowledge of vehicles
Fleet Managers should have some knowledge of vehicles and the mechanics. Not that a Fleet Manager has to necessarily be a qualified engineer or mechanic but a certain knowledge is crucial in areas such as maintenance and fleet procurement.
Making sure you’re compliant
Another element of fleet management that is very important is being sure that the business is operating in the confines of the law. In South Africa this includes being sure of things like traffic fine payment, open road tolling and compliance in terms of tax and log books. Then there is also health and safety, licensing and certification.
The bigger picture
All fleet companies want to improve their bottom lines by improving their efficiencies and this is also a concern for companies that want to try and do their bit for the environment. Fleet Managers who can lower fuel expenditure are addressing both of these issues at the same time. Using technology that monitors fuel economy and carbon emissions.
