The 79th State of the Fleet Industry video produced by Automotive Fleet offers an updated look at the state of the fleet market as presented by AF Editor Mike Antich.
Today's topics include:
- Vehicle availability constraints have forced many fleets to operate vehicles at higher miles beyond their regular replacement cycles.
- Difficulties in sourcing replacement vehicles have prompted many fleets to adopt what is being called "fleet preservation strategies."
- Fleet preservation strategies focus on strict PM compliance, route optimization, idling reduction, and ensuring vehicles are being operated within normal fleet parameters.
- The best strategy is to develop a new-vehicle acquisition strategy that expands your sourcing options by simplifying vehicle specifications to encompass a broader range of OEMs.
