The Forgotten Areas of Fleet Webinar #1

When: 12pm, 21 March 2024 (AEDT)

As a busy fleet manager, we know your focus might be on sourcing vehicles, scheduling services, managing the pool fleet and ensuring your drivers are using them safely.

But, what about all the other areas of fleet that can be just as important to ensure they are used efficiently, effectively and sustainably while aligning to your organisation’s short and long term objectives.

In this first webinar for 2024, we covered Fleet Policy.

Hosted by LBM Fleet Advisor, Sarah Johnson, and Founder of Fleet News Group, Marc Sibbald, the team covered why it’s so important to have a fleet policy, when you need a policy, what you should be including, how to practically apply a policy, frameworks, real examples and more.

  • Market Update – Fuel efficiency standards and more
  • Why you need a fleet policy
  • When you need a policy and how to practically apply it
  • How to create a policy that can addresses utilisation, safety and driver accountability
  • How to provision for the use of electric vehicles
