Fleet Management Pain-Points

In organisations that has a big fleet of vehicles, fuel and fleet maintenance costs make up a substantial component of the cost of the operation. Sadly though, in many organisations, up to 25% of these costs are avoidable and preventable. Secondly, there is a huge component of these costs are incurred on unofficial errands (personal). The pain-points that are common in such organisations are:

  • Abuse of Vehicles - unauthorised use, either during working hours, after hours or over the weekend.

  • Abuse & unauthorised use results in accelerated wear and tear, which impacts directly on the cost of maintaining the fleet.

  • Abuse and unauthorised use also result in increased fuel usage on non-official errands, impacting directly on the government fuel bill.

  • Most Organisations has manual log books for drivers to log trip details. However, these manual log books require human intervention to analyse and take action. Sometimes, the very people to prevent abuse become the abusers. In some instances, man power or man hours to carry out the required tasks is a challenge.

  • For the Government Fleet, The Government Transport Control Unit (GTCU) have inspectors who patrol and mount checkpoints to curb unauthorised use of motor vehicles. This method is however not just costly, but also very ineffective – because the inspectors cannot be everywhere, all the time. This could be the biggest limitation of the method.

  • Fuel management is one other big and very costly challenge.

    • There is no guarantee that the issued quantity of fuel has been put in the intended motor vehicle.
    • Where a given motor vehicle has been correctly refuelled, there is no system to detect and prove theft of fuel. (Decanting)
  • Most Organisations do not have systems to manage driver behaviours. Drivers will go out of bounds, over speed, excessive idling, have minor accidents, damage vehicles and successfully conceal such costly behaviours from their superiors.

  • In cases where a motor vehicle is driven by more than one person, it’s hard to pin point who is responsible and liable for a certain misdemeanour.

  • Managing maintenance and repairs of each motor vehicle and accurately analysing the cost of ownership is another big challenge. Planned / scheduled maintenance is difficult to manage when the fleet is big.

  • Most Organisations usually pays the price for expensive spares. Drivers do exchange faulty expensive spare parts on private vehicles and put them on government vehicles. E.g., A Faulty Mass Airflow Sensor for a private vehicle will be exchanged and installed on a company vehicle, while the none-faulty one which was on a company vehicle is installed on a private vehicle
