Mobile Tracking wants to know if you know how much your spending every month to keep your fleet on the road?
Here’s a great article about how fleet operating costs edged up in 2012.
Fleet operating costs consist of four categories:
Fuel, replacement tires, maintenance/repairs, and preventive maintenance oil drains, offset slightly by warranty recovery monies.
For the most part, all of the expense categories rose slightly over the last 12 months.
Selecting more fuel-efficient vehicles has been the most effective method to reduce fuel expense. An increase of 1 mile per gallon represents approximately a 5-percent decrease in gasoline or diesel fuel expense.
The driver is a key component in increasing fleet fuel efficiency.
