Fleet Supplier Management

Has your fleet contract management of the fleet been handed to someone in HR, Finance, Procurement or Facilities?  Do they have the  time or expertise to manage the fleet effectively?

If the answer is no then we can help.  We offer fleet supplier relationship management (Fleet SRM) as a service.

Challenges we address include:

  •  The Knowledge Gap – we understand where fleet management suppliers make their return and can focus on minimising price creep.
  •  The Power Gap – where a lack of confidence can have the supplier rather than the customer leading the relationship.
  •  Legislation – evolving legislation around tax, risk and emissions.
  •  Technology – new technologies are impacting the vehicles your employees choose and come with differing infrastructure needs.
  •  Data Transparency – access to data can be hosted in different locations and different formats.
