  • Assess the requirements of the fleet.  Considering the requirements and duties that the fleet is expected to fulfill for the company will be the very first step that you should take while composing your fleet management strategy.  Such items as how many trucks are needed, how many employees will work with each truck, what will be the requirements to operate one of the fleet vehicles, etc. After considering all of these fleet requirements, you will be better able to build a foundation for your fleet management strategy.

As with everything in life, those who face their fleet management with a plan are better able to have success.  So before launching any form of business fleet, be sure that you have fully developed a fleet management strategy.
