Still subscribing to the old adage that bigger is better? What if someone told you your fleet is too large? Effective commercial fleet management is not just about ordering new or replacement vehicles. In the right circumstances, it can also mean finding cost savings through reducing the size of your fleet.

Transportation management can be an overwhelming job, and often made unnecessarily complicated by the simple fact your fleet is too large to manage efficiently. The size of your vehicle fleet can grow in rather covert fashion; like relationships, letting go of a vehicle you love can sometimes be difficult and time consuming. That’s when the introduction of a fleet management system can help you say goodbye to the assets that are crowding your space, increasing your maintenance costs and causing you downtime. A good place to start the process is to look into a professional fleet management service provider with a proven track record of success.

A fleet management service provider can do a complete analysis of the vehicles currently in your fleet and cross-reference this with your actual vehicle needs; this will quickly determine if you’re over-stocked or, quite possibly, poorly stocked with vehicles that aren’t being maximized for use. Implementing a new fleet management system can expose inefficiencies in your operation which could lead to a sizable reduction in your fleet size. A good fleet leasing company will also help you remarket those vehicles you no longer need. Even if saving money was not your primary intent, operating a smaller fleet will absolutely help your business save costs.

Regardless of the industry, your business can benefit from professional transportation management. When you’re considering the option be sure to do your own analysis of the fleet management service providers operating in your area. Expertise in a broad range of industries is a key indicator of a commercial fleet management provider’s capabilities. You shouldn’t simply hire a fleet management company to order your fleet; you want a company with years of experience to ensure you’re getting the most out of your investment – even if that means selling off some of your fleet to streamline your operation. It’s time to let go, to move on, to say goodbye. Visit to learn more.
