All of us are facing uncertain times in our business. There’s a lot of uncertainty regarding the economy as well as what are future costs going to be. For most businesses if you have a fleet of vehicles, it’s important and very expensive in terms of the capital sense of the business.
Many clients, even those that are not in trucking and yet have expensive units running up and down the road and since that’s not the core portion of the business, they don’t have the systems in place to actually manage that part of the company. The cost of fuel, drivers and cost of the drivers themselves and their maintenance have all been increasing in most recent years. There’s nothing to suggest that this will not continue. So what do you do?
Every business that has a fleet has to have a plan in place. Whether it’s something you choose internally by hiring our experts, or whether you choose to outsource is really up to an individual to company to decide. Fleet maintenance is about discipline. You have to have plans and systems in place to actually execute. Every business owner has to take care of their fleet. It’s something you can’t avoid and there’s more opportunity for cost improvement.
