What Is the Value of a Fleet Consultant?
It does not matter the size of your fleet of vehicles you might have, – from 50 to 500 – someone in your business needs to manage that fleet. This person can be an “administrative assistant” who is only managing this fleet part-time or a full-time fleet manager who is a professional with several people on staff.
No matter the title or the amount of time spend on fleet management; particular questions need to be answered for that fleet to be valuable for your business. These include:
- Handling of vehicle acquisition and disposal
- Suitability and selection
- Title and licensing
- Storage of records
This list of questions can go on. This is when a fleet consultant is needed.
Help from consultant
The experience and knowledge of a fleet consultant can be of great value from small to mid-sized businesses where no one in the company has the time or even the knowledge to properly manage the fleet. A fleet consultant’s help can be important in forming a strategy for management that addresses the unique needs of your vehicle fleet in an effective and efficient manner. And even if your fleet has a professional in charge, the fresh standpoint of an outside fleet consultant can be quite helpful to your organization. Or there might be a situation or special project which could need some extra help.
For an exceptionally large company with many types of vehicles in their fleet, it is most important to have a full-time fleet consultant to work for your company and manage this large fleet. It is certain that a company the size of Amazon has a full-time fleet consultant managing their fleet of vans or other vehicles as well as their current project of drone delivery.
