Fleet Procurement: What To Consider In Your Strategy

Fleet Procurement is a critical skill for every fleet and it’s important grows as the industry continues to develop.

A key aspect of fleet procurement is getting value for money and in this blog post we will cover three areas you should consider within your strategy.

Firstly, it’s important to understand what fleet procurement is.

What Is Fleet Procurement?

Procurement across any industry refers to obtaining or buying goods and services and this is no different with fleets.

According to Fleet News, “procurement is a critical skill within any fleet operation, whether it is for services or vehicles”.

Your Fleet Procurement Strategy

While there are many different aspects of your strategy to consider, we will look at what we consider to be the three most important. They are:

  1. Fuel Economy
  2. Vehicle Tracking
  3. Common Routes

Fuel Economy

Fuel Economy is one of the biggest factors to consider when creating your strategy. Fuel is a cost that is always increasing or decreasing depending on market factors so it can be difficult to manage.

However, you can begin to manage fuel economy by understanding the fuel efficiency of each of your vehicles. This can help to cut costs and increase sustainability.

Newer vehicles are likely to have features such as cruise control that assist with fuel economy.

Vehicle Tracking

To many, vehicle tracking refers to knowing the location of your drivers and vehicles.

However, Vehicle Tracking from Fuelwise provides many other features than just Live Tracking.

Driver and Vehicle Performance enable you to monitor behaviour and discover your where efficiency can be increased.

When combined, Fuelwise Fuel Cards and Vehicle Tracking can reduce fuel costs by up to 12% per year.

Route Planning

Understanding the routes of your vehicles travel will enable you to make decisions about your fleet.

It’s not just the quickest and shortest route you need to consider.

Other information such as speed limits and accessible fuel stations are just as important.

Route planning is essential to the efficiency of your fleet and can have a huge impact on how much you spend on your fleet.
