Change is ahead. Plan now!
You have probably heard the phrase ‘act local and think global’. This works to a point, but for fleet, many organisations need a global fleet strategy. Boards can no longer rely on the local hero anymore. They need an international or sometimes a global supplier. Things are changing fast and your new fleet strategy needs to be on the list.
Consolidated data and reporting is essential. Harmonisation is required.
A unified fleet can provide a competitive advantage by making employees and assets more productive. It can also serve as a tool to control disparate operational fleets that lacked sufficient high-level leadership or direction. Many multinational companies view establishing a global fleet policy as the fastest way to get where they want to go.
Do you need to change?
Compliancy and control issues across Europe and European Fleet managers are driving a need to understand fleet better. The answer is reporting tools and solutions where you can realise harmonisation and cost-efficiency goals.
This is what we do. We have a suite of tools designed to benchmark your current situation across all areas of fleet. We then deliver your road map for the future and ensure your fleet policy is optimised and delivers efficiencies you expect.
How we help
With over 30 years of global fleet knowledge under our belts we know where to begin and how to maintain momentum. As you can imagine, to redefine a global fleet policy takes time, energy, commitment and internal stakeholders at all levels. A brief summary of how we start the process:
- Benchmark. We help you bring together all the relevant departments. Fleet, Human Resources, Purchasing, Sales, and Finance all have input and expectations to consider and results to benchmark. The fleet policy bridges the gap between each area’s expectations.
- Building a robust plan. This is starting point for the road map. Your goals should include creating economies of scale, standardising processes, identifying optimal methods for each fleet function throughout the process chain, identifying issues, taking advantage of synergies, and establishing effective service-level agreements.
- Additional functions. This is where our insights and transparency come into play. A global fleet policy covers many components. International and local issues, funding, insurance, fuel and maintenance, details of negotiated discounts, local/global rebates and domestic incentives, discounts to name but a few.
- Develop an implementation plan. Relevant departments should be clearly defined and communicated to. Committee members’ roles and responsibilities, performance expectations, and working relationships should be considered.
- Stick to best practice and measure success. We help identify and develop best business models,. We know how to re-engineer strategies and other practices for streamlining your day-to-day business and internal policies, procedures, and processes. We then return to the baseline and measure performance against the benchmark. This evaluation serves as a barometer to compare and measure performance against goals over time.
