New Global Proposal Service Launched by DFSI
Diversified Fleet Services International (DFSI) has launched an all-new service for multinational fleets to provide them with assistance in developing global requests for proposal (RFP). The new service — called Global Proposal Service — was announced by Cliff Samuelsen, manager of DFSI. The new service will include:
Custom designing client-specific global tenders and global RFP.
Developing a format and procedure to effect a streamlined RFP evaluation process.
Administering the global tender on behalf of the client.
Providing guidance for implementation and start-up of a global fleet program.
Conducting an audit of the global vehicle fleet and recommending cost savings.
Setting up reporting capabilities for vehicles located anywhere in the world.
“One problem encountered by some U.S. fleet managers in preparing a global RFP is that it is sometimes designed with a U.S. domestic mindset,” said Samuelsen. “This U.S.-type RFP simply does not work if applied on a global level. Globally, there are different methods of acquisition and different types of fleet management services. Each country has its own governance and country-specific laws that apply to credit, financing, registration, taxation, and emissions.”
