What really counts in the company fleet?

The vehicle fleet of a company not only represents an enormous cost pool, but is often linked to emotional decisions. Out of habit, people prefer certain brands or operate vehicles that do not necessarily meet their actual mobility needs or that have been evaluated for optimal cost.

If there is increased margin or cost pressure in a company, it is worth taking a close look at the company fleet and analyzing possible savings potential. This also applies to the process design, the processing times for tenders and the optimal financing method.

It is best to do this first neutrally and detached from previous preferences for specific vehicle brands or types, but only in terms of the questions:

  • What do we use the company vehicles for?
  • How long will the vehicles be needed?
  • How many kilometers are driven?
  • What must the vehicle offer in any case (e.g. in terms of employee safety)?
  • Which equipment is “nice-to have”?
  • What is the financing situation?
  • What effort can and do we want to invest in the management within the company?
  • What tasks are currently being handled by external service providers?
  • Are alternative mobility solutions possible?
  • Can vehicles be shared (e.g. vehicle pool)?
  • How important is sustainability in our company?

Neutral facts help with the decision

A neutral analysis of the actual needs quickly provides clarity about possible adjustments in the fleet. The total costs according to TCO are always a decisive factor.

  • a comparison of your existing fleet costs with current market prices in benchmarking
