The advantages of central fleet management
With a growing or changing organisation you’ll have a lot to do and fleet management might not be at the top of the priority list. If you don’t have a dedicated fleet manager and the responsibility is spread across various departments like HR, procurement facilities or finance, it can be not clear who is really responsible for fleet. And, if your business is active in multiple branches, regions or even countries the logistics can get even more complicated.
But, look out! Fleet can be one of the top three costs for many organisations. In this blog we share our experiences, the seven advantages of central fleet management and how LeasePlan can help if you want to outsource fleet management tasks.
