Steer fleets to ‘substantial’ fuel savings, says Chevin13 January 2015
Fleet managers should take a proactive approach to sourcing fuel if they want to deliver "substantial" savings.
That's the call from Chevin Fleet Solutions, which says that operators can maximise the benefit from current falls in oil and petrol prices if they take the time to steer drivers to the cheapest outlets.
"When fleets were writing their current budgets, it is fair to assume that the vast majority did not foresee prices falling in the relatively dramatic fashion we have recently experienced," says Ashley Sowerby, Chevin's managing director.
These savings are a bonus – but more can be achieved, he urges.
"With a little online research to find the best prices available, and by using their fuel cards and fleet software, they will be able to do even better," insists Sowerby.
"Simply guiding drivers towards the cheapest local outlets available could easily give you an extra 5p per litre… Your fuel card data and the analysis tools will let you see which drivers are complying and also allow you to demonstrate the kind of savings that are being achieved."
