Synopsis In an era of ever-tightening fleet budgets, rightsizing has become the go-to strategy for squeezing greater cost-efficiencies out of vehicle fleets, without diminishing service to customers. But achieving the proper balance between vehicle inventory and service levels is often easier said than done because it's never a one-time job. As the needs of the business change, so do vehicle requirements. This presentation will show fleet managers how to determine the optimal size for their fleets at any given time – and how to get there. The Federal ASTM guide promotes considerations for the management of fleet assets in the context of mission needs and asset capabilities. Measurement and management of fleet program effectiveness can result in increased asset utilization, cost savings, asset life, and mission effectiveness. This presentation covers the principles of vehicle and fleet replacement, including the City of Baltimore fleet replacement practices in 2012, how a case was made for fleet modernization, implementing a plan for modernization, improvements made, and lessons learned.
This workshop covers the importance of fleet metrics and the types of metrics that are needed to efficiently manage a fleet operation and communicate results with senior leadership.
Fleet owners relying on dealerships, commercial shops or contract service providers for maintenance and repair services should understand how to ensure cost effectiveness and not assume third-party providers always have their best interests in mind. The presenters review key strategies and techniques for making sure fleet buyers receive good value for the money.
This session covers GSA Bulletin FMR B-38 Motor Vehicle Management - Indirect Costs of Motor Vehicle Fleet Operations. It also contains information on activity-based cost (ABC) analysis, how ABC is used to determine and improve the management of fleet operating costs.
Many companies utilize employee-provided vehicles to some degree or another in order to meet their needs for the transport of people, goods, or services. Employees who operate their vehicles for business use are compensated under either taxable or non-taxable reimbursement plans, but employers and employees often overlook differences in tax consequences between the two types of reimbursement methods.
This presentation covers how to recognize what data is critical to management and contain fleet costs. The presenters explain how to create a reporting framework that gets the right data to the right decision-maker at the right time. How to overcome obstacles to success is covered.

This presentation will define negligence and risk for fleet managers and, in particular, police fleet managers. It will discuss whether fleet managers could be liable under civil or criminal law while performing within their approved scope of responsibilities, as well as address whether “sovereign immunity” applies to the fleet manager.
