Five Unpredictions for 2017

We may not be able to predict the future here at Automotive Fleet, but we can confidently predict that 2017 will be very interesting.

Fleet Success Comes From Sticking to Just the Facts

When it’s all said and done, there usually is a right answer for a particular fleet and the best person to make that decision is a well-educated fleet manager.

Why You Should be Bullish About the Future of Fleet Management

Fleet management has migrated from the garage to the Excel spreadsheet. We don’t have to wonder anymore about whether that compact car really is more expensive to operate than a comparable small SUV. Now the data can give us the answer.

Focusing on the Vehicle Delivery Process

The fleet industry is evolving at an ever-increasing pace, but the one area that hasn’t evolved and never seems to improve is the actual vehicle delivery process. It would seem to be the easiest part of the whole business, but it is the one area that everyone struggles with.

Game-Planning for the Fleet Technology Expo

Fleet Technology Expo will include three days of education on tactics for optimizing fleet software and data and alternative-fuel adoption, information on the latest technologies you'll see in your fleet in the not-so-distant future, strategies for reducing fuel use and maintenance costs, and more.

What’s Your Backup Plan?

Despite all leading-edge technology and bleeding-edge regulations that are being thrust upon the fleet market, there is a gaping hole in many fleet plans. What to do when a vehicle, or a whole bunch of vehicles, are suddenly not available?

Defining the Size of the ‘Fleet’ Market Isn’t Always as Easy as it Looks

'Automotive Fleet' defines a fleet as any commercial or public entity that operates 15 or more vehicles or buys 10 or more vehicles in a single calendar-year.

It’s a Great Time to Be in the Fleet Business

It’s a great time for fleet managers to make a real difference, save money, save lives, and make their businesses more productive.

Is Reimbursement Just Another ‘Big Bad Wolf’ or the Newest Fleet Tool?

The best fleet managers survived the total fleet management era because they brought value to their companies.

Not All Safety Systems Are Created Equal

There are a lot of safety options available for the modern fleet’s drivers. It’s time to take a more nuanced look at the options that are available in the market today.

Impacts of Politics on Fleet Management

The modern fleet manager and the companies that serve them need to keep an eye on the political process. They need to watch not just the economic trends, but the political ones as well. Those trends are going to determine what vehicles are available and what they cost.

Preparing Your Fleet to Meet Rising Market Trends

Plan ahead for the future and have discussions with your senior management about costs and what the future has in store for your fleet. While it looks like the cost of a gallon of gasoline may be going down, the cost of everything else is going to go up.

Analyzing the Future of Fleet

It’s time to put another year in the books and look forward to 2016. Take some time to analyze current and future trends and how that will impact your fleet operation.

Future-Proofing Your Fleet

Fleet management is a complex job; it requires a little forward thinking, a little anticipation, and maybe a crystal ball to help you see the future.

Safety Equipment: Taking the Lead

We bang the drum for fleet safety a lot here at Automotive Fleet. It’s an area of top concern for most of our readers and for most of the suppliers that do business with them.

It's Not Just What You Know

When the day comes that you decide to finally hang up your cleats, you’ll probably realize that it was less about what you knew about the fleet business and more about who you knew.
