#5- Idiot-proofing your fleet: Avoiding the 10 dumbest mistakes you can make managing your fleet fuel expenses

May 16, 2011


Hello and welcome back to our response to the Top 10 Dumbest Fleet Managing Mistakes

Today, we are talking about. . . 

5. Allowing Exceptions

The Problem- Allowing exceptions to company policy makes fleet managers ineffective and damages their respectability.

The Solution- A fleet card lets you set your policy in stone.  Purchasing controls ensure that drivers will always stick to policy because they do not have the means to break it.  When the rules are enforced, drivers aren’t able to break them.  And if you ever need to make an exception to the rule, it’s as easy as logging into your account and making the necessary change for the driver who is in need, whether it is for unexpected maintenance costs or an emergency quart of oil at the convenience store.  When you choose how your money is spent, you’ll keep a lot more of it in your account.
