Fleet professionals offered their views in response to a recent Automotive Fleet article, Fleet Simplification is the Antidote to Fleet Variability. Key points of the article include:
- Specialized functions they must perform. With longer service lives, these assets are vulnerable to obsolescence.
- Asset simplification can produce significant cost savings and productivity improvements.
- Today’s sourcing environment complicates asset simplification strategies.
- A decentralized fleet structure is one of the biggest “minefields” that can derail an asset simplification initiative.
- Critical to reducing asset variability is involving user groups early in the discussion.
One Additional Minefield
I definitely agreed with the premise of the Market Trends blog entitled “Fleet Simplification is the Antidote to Fleet Variability.” One additional minefield that commercial fleets will have to incorporate into their standardization (or simplification) strategy will be the electrification of the transport sector which is primarily being driven federal and state governments.

Proactive Safety Strategies
I read the Market Trends blog written by Mike Antich entitled: “Fleet Simplification is the Antidote to Asset Variability.” As customers continue to equip their fleet, whether they are making the switch to EVs, keeping assets longer, different years, makes, and models...how are fleet managers protecting both their drivers and their fleet vehicles? What proactive approaches are being taken to keep them safe?
