Choosing the right vehicles, financed in the right way, with mileage contracts that suit your fleet operations, can help minimise your fleet operating costs.
Fleet Policy Creation and Updates
But for all of this to work cohesively and efficiently, you need to have a clear fleet policy for all your employees.
The fleet policy should be clear and as simple as possible to cover all aspects of your fleet operation. This should also include grey fleet drivers, too. It will need to be communicated effectively to all your employees and your drivers should agree to the policy.
Drawing up relevant and appropriate policies may be time-consuming, but it is also essential to ensure the smooth running of your fleet and to provide your drivers with clear guidelines.
Your company policy for its fleet should cover areas such as:
- What vehicles are appropriate for which employee grades
- Choice of drivetrain and any CO2 caps
- Vehicle replacement schedule
- Fuel spend and reimbursement
- Driver licence checks
- Servicing and maintenance schedules
- Regular vehicle inspections by the driver
- Fleet training procedures
- And so on
It can be a complex item to create. However, drawing on CBVC Vehicle Management’s extensive experience, we can create a policy for you; or review your current policies and suggest amendments.
We can also offer on-going advice regarding legislative changes that will have an impact on your company policy and how you will need to revise it.
The service will provide you with more effective management of your fleet.
