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

May 20, 2011

Happy Friday and welcome to our response to the 9th topic in the 10 dumbest mistakes fleet managers can make.

9. Ignoring Salespeople


The Problem- Fleet managers tend to avoid or shrug off meetings with salespeople, which carries the risk of being uninformed about options.  Upper management doesn’t look kindly on a manager who doesn’t care about potential partners.


The Solution- With all the time you’ll save with a fleet card, you’ll have enough time to talk to all the salespeople you want.  And probably still have enough time left to take a nice long lunch.  Also, salespeople will usually leave you a nice pen.
