Historical Stock Chart
3 Years : From May 2012 to May 2015
Forty-six percent of fleet managers cite cost savings as the primary
focus of executive management as it relates to their company’s fleet
operations, according to a recent survey conducted by GE Capital Fleet
Services. This was followed by on-time delivery and service, driver
safety and resource productivity (all 15 percent).
Accordingly, when fleet managers cited their greatest concerns for 2012,
26 percent said meeting their organizations’ cost-savings goals was
their greatest concern, an increase of three percent since last year’s
survey, followed by driver safety (23 percent) and workforce
productivity (19 percent).
The GE Capital Fleet Services’ survey of fleet managers was recently
conducted at the 2012 NAFA Institute & Expo in St. Louis.
“Whether identifying ways to reduce maintenance spend or fine-tune
vehicle replacement strategies, we continue to experience a high demand
from customers on how best to optimize their fleets and drive out cost,”
said Mark Hayes, chief marketing officer of GE Capital Fleet Services.
“We specialize in working closely with customers to make them successful
based on the demands of today’s business environment and the future
goals of their organizations.”
According to the survey, in the next 12 months fifty-seven percent of
fleet managers will have incorporated alternative fuel vehicles into
their fleets. Fewer fleet managers than a year ago said they do not
currently have plans to incorporate alternative fuel vehicles over the
next 12 months (30 percent today down from 34 percent).
Other key findings from the survey include:
Analytics: Thirty-eight percent use analytics tools to identify
ways to improve operational efficiencies and 24 percent note analytics
have assisted their purchasing decisions.
Vehicle replacement: Only 7 percent of respondents do not have
plans to pursue a vehicle replacement program in the next 12 months.
Leasing versus owning: Forty-eight percent said the majority of
the fleet they manage is leased, equal to the percentage whose fleets
are owned by their company.
