Companies with fleets located within “Snowbelt” regions have particular challenges when developing policies around vehicle selection. To overcome these obstacles, companies should implement a customized policy for specific geographical regions. Here are a few key factors to consider when thinking about a Snowbelt policy for your fleet:
- Assess financial impact – One of the most important factors to consider is the cost of implementing and running the program. Know your budget, compare scenarios, and obtain approval.
- Train your drivers – Driver training (classroom, online, simulator, behind-the-wheel) can significantly help protect both drivers and vehicle assets through education and skill development.
