Leasedrive Velo launches grey fleet guide

14 February 2011

According to one of the UK’s largest vehicle management groups Leasedrive Velo, management of grey fleets is a ‘ticking time bomb’.

It has therefore launched a booklet called ‘Essential Guide to Grey Fleet Management’ to help improve such management.

The guide considers the following:

  • The need to remain on top of duty of care issues when dealing with grey fleets
  • The environmental considerations involved
  • The financial impact
  • Essential grey fleet guidelines
  • Ways of reducing grey fleet use.

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.”
