There's no excuse for not managing grey fleet

16 July 2019

The Driving for Better Business Leadership Report has highlighted some worrying failings in senior management’s knowledge and actions in dealing with grey fleet:

  • 60% of leaders didn’t know the size of their grey fleet
  • 53% thought it wasn’t their responsibility (it very much is!)
  • 34% of grey fleet drivers had never had their driving licence checked
  • 33% didn’t have cover for business journeys on their car insurance
  • 74% of drivers don’t do proper vehicle and tyre checks

Steven Briers, Editor-in-Chief of Fleet News, gives his view on managing grey fleet here.
