Coronavirus: Fleet adoption of mobility solutions threatened

20 May 2020

Story from Fleet News.

A reliance on the multi-use of assets by mobility solutions threatens their adoption by fleets concerned about curtailing the spread of Covid-19, says FleetCheck.

The software company says that the mobility products that have been promoted to fleets over the past few years, as an alternative to existing corporate travel methods, are designed to get more out of existing transport assets – whether that is car sharing, ride sharing, access to pool vehicles, or increased use of public transport.

Peter Golding, managing director at FleetCheck, explained, “In a world that is coping with coronavirus, all of these options become much more problematic.

“They are inevitably much riskier and potentially dangerous than the one driver, one vehicle company car or van model that they seek to replace.”

Golding believes this will have an impact on which mobility solutions were considered viable by fleets and would become widely adopted over the next few years.
