Align your fleet to the needs of your staff and organisation

Fleet optimisation means using actual usage data to make informed decisions about how to manage your vehicles.

Ways to get started

Use a booking system

Start by taking a pooled approach — having cars that spend all day in the garage is a waste of resources. Car pool booking software can help to make sure the right vehicle is available for the right job.

Collect data and explore your options

Record data on how your vehicles are used over a period of months. Use this to structure an efficient fleet that still meets your needs. If 1-2 staff members often take short trips journey, you may be able to switch a wagon for a fuel efficient compact car — or an electric vehicle.

Think beyond ownership

There are more creative transport options than owning or leasing a car. Car share schemes, e-bikes, e-scooters and public transport are cost-effective and flexible options that can save resources and still meet your needs.

Work out the total cost of ownership

Make the best choice for your carbon footprint – and your bottom line – by looking beyond the purchase price of a new business vehicle. Our total cost of ownership tool makes it easy for you to compare the cost of buying, running and on-selling new vehicles, whether they are electric, hybrid, petrol or diesel.
