Optimize Fleet Size and Remove Surplus Vehicles
Eliminate Surplus Fleet Vehicles to Reduce Fleet Costs
How many fleet vehicles do you really need?
Nobody really knows without a fleet utilization audit that uses real vehicle data. BFO 5-week GPS utilization studies are proven to right size your fleet with the pinpoint accuracy.
Why a 5-week study period works.
Standard staff job descriptions follow the same daily, weekly, and monthly patterns. Staff drive vehicles so utilization follows the same patterns.
A 5-week GPS utilization snapshot provides all the information required to find most problems and optimize fleet size. The 5-week period captures all daily and weekly cycles and is long enough to observe monthly cycles as well.
The knowledge gain from analysis of a second month of vehicle utilisation data is almost zero. It is a key reason why permanent GPS with 3-5 year minimum term contracts are not recommended to maintain fleet size. Permanent GPS has a sharply negative ROI in this case.
How to optimize your fleet with the BFO data?
Review the BFO written report. Use its content backed with our international reputation and expertise to justify why change is necessary.
Use the BFO QueryBuilder online analysis tool to confirm how many vehicles of each type are required to achieve the organization mission.
Build strong business cases to right size or downsize your fleet supported with compelling BFO information and graphics.
Staff now understand why vehicles must be cut so eliminate underutilized surplus vehicles with minimal resistance.
Improve your fleet operational performance [i.e. minimize service area overlaps, reduce idle time, validate trip planning effectiveness, assess fleet vehicle use policy compliance]
Find savings to reduce fleet costs. Surplus or under-utilized fleet vehicle disposal often helps fund fleet improvements.
Optimize your fleet size BEFORE:
Renewing fleet lease contract(s) or outsourcing Fleet Management services. Otherwise you will overpay for those services.
Your next major vehicle procurement cycle so surplus vehicles are not replaced.
