"Essential Guide to Grey Fleet Management" available free from Leasedrive Velo
The essential guide looks at the background behind the rise in grey fleet; the legislative minefield to be navigated to remain on top of duty of care; the environmental considerations; the financial impact; essential grey fleet guidelines; and ways of reducing grey fleet.
Roddy Graham, commercial director at Leasedrive Velo, said: 'The grey fleet is a ticking time bomb for many organisations. It's surprising how, despite the legislative minefield, so many have little or no control over their grey fleet. And worst still, many grey fleets are larger than many organisations assume. That's fine as long as the vehicles their employees drive are "fit for the purpose", roadworthy, properly maintained, taxed and insured, which is not always the case!
'However, by properly managing the grey fleet, organisations can not only meet their duty of care responsibilities but also enhance their corporate social responsibilities by improving their safety culture and reducing their overall carbon footprint. On the way, they can achieve significant cost savings in terms of travel expenditure.'
