Why use a fleet management company?

If you're new to fleet management you may not realize how important your fleet is to your company's success. Fleet is one of the top five controllable expenses – which is why effective management is vital to reducing operating costs and increasing driver productivity.

The importance of effective fleet management

As a fleet manager, your actions affect your company’s bottom line by:

  • Having vehicles where and when you need them

  • Having the right vehicles for the right job

  • Keeping those vehicles on the road and productive

  • Ensuring driver safety

  • Minimizing corporate risk

Why should independent fleets partner with Element?

When it comes to independently managed fleets, you may be missing out on crucial support and insight, making a partner like Element beneficial. As fleet experts, we have the knowledge, volume purchasing power, resources and technology essential to managing your fleet assets efficiently.

Some of the advantages of moving from an independently managed fleet to working with Element are:

  • Customized fleet management solutions

    • Whether you're 100% hands-on or want to leave everything to us (or somewhere in between), we can develop a tailored fleet program to your company’s specific needs and goals.

  • Cost savings

    • We’re experts in vehicle right-sizing, alternative fuels, telematics solutions, and we have long-standing relationships with OEMs, all of which can add up to significant cost savings for you.

  • Fleet asset management

    • Does your company use forklifts, pickers, pallet jacks or other material handling equipment? Often overlooked, these items are just as important to manage as your fleet of vehicles. At Element, we offer asset management, not just vehicle management.

The decision to partner with a fleet management company is an important one, and Element is here to help you manage any and all aspects of your fleet’s lifecycle. Get started by exploring our fleet resources and comprehensive suite of fleet services.

If you have a fleet of vehicles or material handling equipment, there are many advantages to using an outsourced partner to save money and improve productivity.
