Fuel and mileage solution to bring significant cost saving for fleet
Group 1 Automotive UK is forecasting significant savings following the roll-out of a new fuel card and mileage solution from TMC across its fleet.
The winner of the Innovation in Fuel Saving and Management title at this year’s Fleet World Honours, the Fuel+ solution provides each driver with an account and records the mileage they do in each vehicle via TMC’s app or online system – whether it be test drives, deliveries or private mileage. TMC audit each business journey and their comprehensive reporting provides accurate, clear information to the management team. TMC can also offer an online ‘log book’ which provides an essential record of who was driving the car at any one time.
Group 1 Automotive UK will shortly complete the roll-out of TMC’s Fuel+ service across its 52 car dealerships across the UK and Paul Daynes, group HR director, said the business, expects to achieve a significant cost saving due to the accuracy and visibility Fuel+ brings over vehicle usage and mileage.
Daynes said: “A dealership fleet is a complex operation, with a wide variety of vehicles and journey types, including company cars, demonstrators, test drives, deliveries and transfers. About 20% of our operation have been using TMC’s service for a little over two years and when we were looking to pick best practice around the group, TMC best met our needs.”
