- Difficulties in sourcing replacement vehicles have prompted many fleets to adopt what is being called "fleet preservation strategies."
- Fleet preservation strategies focus on strict PM compliance, route optimization, idling reduction, and ensuring vehicles are being operated within normal fleet parameters.
