A vehicle and fleet management approach that balances cost, environment and employee satisfaction is achieved through a detailed understanding of one's mid and long term fleet strategy.
A balanced fleet management approach is one that takes into account the needs and desires of many different departments within a company i.e. cost, environment and employees. Often one of these areas is predominant and drives the ultimate decision, which is important to know when outlining the fleet strategy. When defining global fleet policies, an understanding of your mid- and long-term fleet management strategy is required in order to make the right decisions at each point of the fleet management process.
Striking the right balance between the interests of all disciplines is challenging but possible. As long as all parties concerned are involved in defining the fleet strategy and supporting the overall commonly selected targets, the decision-making process will inevitably be more straightforward and the implementation process much smoother.
LeasePlan has developed the Fleet Balance tool to help its customers discover how they can balance all the different perspectives (Procurement, HR and Environment) involved in a global vehicle policy as well as verify if their local car policies actually reflect their global fleet strategy.
