Fleet management can be one of the biggest challenges for growing companies. To help with this we’ve assembled a business fleet A-Z.
From financing fleet vehicles and running them day-to-day, to knowing when to replace them – there are so many decisions to make – so here’s our business fleet A-Z to help.
For many SME companies, especially those starting out, the world of business fleet can seem flooded with jargon. There are so many different kinds of vehicles and ways to finance them, there are so many analytics you can report on and different taxes or schemes to take note of.
That’s why we have created the Fleet For Growing Businesses hub to provide a one-stop shop for all fleet managers and SME owners. We will be demystifying the fleet process, helping decision makers get to grips with the information needed to build a future-proof fleet strategy.
As part of that hub, we have put together a business fleet A-Z to help you pick apart all the jargon that goes with fleet management. From approved mileage rates to zero-emissions it’s all here for your perusal.
Throughout the hub, you will find case studies of businesses that have already been through the process of assembling fleets, expert views from those in the know and various features explaining the nitty gritty of fleet management.
Each article will link back to our A-Z wherever necessary, so you get a comprehensive breakdown of any sub-topics you need more clarity on.
