    They are fine if you are under 5 foot 11 and are not carrying any weight. I'm 6 foot and lasted only a 8 days in one before my knees were getting so bad I had to limp. Working for ADT in there commercial department on large scale projects they are worthless. We need to have a second one follow you around with our equipment. The fuel savings isn't much better either.

    This van is the biggest piece of junk I have ever driven. There is not one good thing I can say about this vehicle> I am on my third transmission and headed for my fourth. Fleet people should wake up and look at the Caravan Ram C/V I have experience with, light years a better vehicle more suited to ADT and my needs.

    The Transit is ideal for these technicians due to their work conditions; the road they travel down are typical very narrow. The shorter wheel base indeed helps with parking of the vehicle. For ADT; the Transit is no bigger than it needs to be to get the job done.

Institutionalizing Cost-Control Strategies

By Mike Antich
Senior management exerts intense pressure on fleet managers to control and/or reduce vehicle acquisition and operating expenses. To accomplish this, a fleet managers can pursue three different cost-control strategies — cost savings, cost deferral, or cost avoidance.
