Managing a Fleet of Vehicles Effectively
Company vehicles require good management in order to be convenient and cost-effective assets to the business. All businesses that have a fleet need to make sure they have good fleet management processes in place. Here are some things to think about:
- Ensure all legalities are met. This means MOTs and repairs are carried out as needed as well as appropriate insurance policies taken out.
- Make sure your staff are as safe as possible, at all times. If you need to take extra steps that aren’t necessarily part of your legal requirements, do so. For example, if an employee just doesn’t get on with their car but there is nothing technically wrong with it, swap the car for one they feel comfortable with.
- Check that staff have all the correct information. Make sure they have fuel cards, log books, manuals, and that they know what to do if there is ever an emergency.
