Fleet Management

Introduction

Fleet management is a standard process of keeping an organization’s multiple vehicles and their operators in top-running condition.  It is the overall management of a company’s vehicle fleet, which includes commercial motor vehicles such as cars, vans, trucks, ships, etc. It also includes a range of functions, such as vehicle financing, vehicle maintenance, vehicle telematics (tracking and diagnostics), driver management, speed management, fuel management and health and safety management.

Fleet management is about establishing the best possible level of control over an inconsistent environment, where factors such as weather, traffic, breakdown, customer demand and availability of manpower and equipment can change from day to day or hour to hour.
