The outlook for managing drivers and vehicles in 2021

7 January 2021

News from Driving for Better Business.

The latest lockdown, which the government appears to expect to be in place for at least the next 2-3 months, with some restrictions staying in place for much of the year, means those who are managing drivers and vehicles have to continue to adapt to the current situation.

There are eight key things to think about when planning for 2021 including:

  • Increased demand
  • Driver recruitment
  • Wellbeing
  • Unused vehicles
  • Scheduled maintenance
  • Modal shift
  • Last mile delivery
  • Housekeeping
