As fleets have become more complex, the challenges fleet managers are facing on a day-to-day basis have also become more complex.
More often than not these days, companies and organizations are often multidimensional, multinational entities, crossing borders and oceans, incorporating multiple languages as a routine course of business, and requiring the adherence to a variety of laws, regulations and rules from different governments and authorities.
And, just as organizations have evolved, fleet management decision-making has evolved right along with it. Fleet management has grown from being a situation where most commonly a single person – the fleet manager – was the decision maker to one where many different stakeholders may have an interest in how decisions are made. From risk to human resources to finance to the c-suite – everyone seems to want to weigh in on fleet. One stakeholder who is likely to have a particularly strong interest is – you guessed it – the sustainability manager.
