The benefits of fleet management outsourcing

Sponsored by BT Fleet

An ever-increasing number of organisations - small, medium and large - rely on the expertise of specialist fleet management companies to manage their vehicles on a day-to-day basis.

BT Fleet is one of the UK’s leading providers of fleet management, vehicle maintenance and accident management services, recognised for its specialism in mission critical fleets and best practice in the fleet industry.

The award-winning company - it won the 2016 Fleet News Best Customer Service Award - is a wholly owned subsidiary of the BT Group, providing services to some of the country’s most recognisable businesses with a reputation for service quality, technical excellence and resilience. BT Fleet manages more than 80,000 vehicles and operates the UK’s largest one-stop-shop garage network dedicated to operational fleets.

The seminar will focus on outsourced fleet management and explain how it is possible to outsource all aspects dependant on operational requirements and contractual arrangements.

Many organisations have adopted such an approach and the seminar will provide an overview on the motivations behind the decision to outsource and the benefits that can be enjoyed. They are many and varied and, if done correctly with controls in place, can include: cost savings, increased operating and administration efficiency and greater flexibility than in-house solutions.

The range of fleet-related functions that can be outsourced today to a third party specialist are numerous, but fleet management needs to form part of an organisation’s overall business plan. After all, a commercial vehicle fleet is a key asset and needs to be effectively and proactively managed if it is to deliver optimum performance and value.

The seminar is a ‘must attend’ event for members of any internal department that has a responsibility for fleet management such as procurement, finance, transport operators and the fleet team. Fleet management experts will also highlight the key topics facing the industry and the practicalities of running a highly cost-efficient fleet.

As well as showcasing BT’s award-winning services, the company will also be sharing best practice case studies and providing advice, information and insight to attendees.
