Centralized fleet management is a coordinated approach to managing vehicle inventory that helps local governments move beyond just maintaining fleet vehicles to actively planning for vehicle capacity and efficiency.
“Right-sizing” the fleet is a process that looks at the organization’s requirements to ensure that the fleet is appropriately sized and has the right quantity and types of vehicles needed.
This coordinated approach should involve assigning, tracking and recording data for each vehicle. Maintaining detailed vehicle histories helps ensure vehicles are properly maintained, serviced in accordance with recommended practices and are not misused. In addition, this information can flow back into the planning process by informing management of fleet’s level of usage. Vehicle replacements can then be planned based on the average lifespan and typical use of the vehicles.
