How Does Your Fleet Handle Truck Maintenance?

Maintenance is a large part of managing a truck fleet. Work Truck magazine is looking for fleet manager input regarding truck fleet maintenance trends, including information related to outsourcing and in-house maintenance.

To participate in our study, please click here.

In 2018, the majority of truck fleets, regardless of size, still purchased as their main way of funding trucks. Very few smaller fleets, with fewer than 400 trucks, used the lease-only option, with that percentage increasing slightly for fleets with more than 1,000 trucks. Help us paint a picture of how this may – or may not – have changed.

All responses will be kept anonymous and will be used only to help assemble a study for an upcoming issue on the trends related to truck maintenance outsourcing. Any information requested is used purely to qualify responses.

Thank you in advance for taking a few minutes to help us paint a picture of current fleet maintenance and outsourcing trends.

Fleet management is the use of a set of vehicles in order to provide services to a third-party, or to perform a task for our organization, in the most efficient and productive manner with a determined level of service and cost.

Fleet management activities are shown in the following graph 1:

Graph 1: fleet management activities

The proposal audit analyses and assesses all fleet management activities shown in the graph 1, and its main goals are:

  • Know the overall status of the fleet management activities
  • Provide the analysis, the assessment, the advice, the suggestions and the actions to take in order to cut costs and increase the efficiency and efficacy of the fleet management  activities

With the information obtained, we’ll elaborate a report that holds the overall status of the fleet management as well as the suggestions, recommendations and the measures to take in order to cut costs and optimize the fleet management activities.
