Selecting the right vehicles is a crucial decision for fleet managers. It’s what makes the difference between having an efficient fleet or one that’s inefficient.

Finding the right balance between cost and function can be challenging. Purchasing a vehicle that’s less expensive but isn’t cut out for the job might create upfront savings, but that same vehicle could cost you big later. When buying new vehicles, talk to managers and drivers to understand how they will be used, what their operational requirements are, and any specifications drivers need to perform their jobs.

We have mapped out six steps to making sure you’re buying the best—not just the least expensive—vehicles for your company. Following these steps will have a positive impact on your lifecycle management.
