Q. How do we right-size our fleet?

A. The quickest way to reduce costs in your fleet is to right-size, reduce unnecessary vehicles, and share vehicles in a motor pool. If you are not sure if you have the right vehicle count, using utilization data to eliminate or redeploy underused vehicles can reduce annual fleet costs by $3,500-$6,000 per vehicle per year. With an automated vehicle sharing system, you can offer online reservations and self-service motor pools that make sharing vehicles easy and efficient. Checking out a vehicle should be as simple as reserving the vehicle online and then picking up keys from a secure automated system, no staff required.
