Fleet Logistics, a key player in the European fleet management sector, has announced a series of solutions designed to reduce costs and increase efficiency for logistics service providers with a small to medium-sized fleet. 

In order to maximize the potential of its clients, Fleet has implemented a set of standardized policies to create clear, automated process flows. Invoice control and related issues will also be tackled, and full support is expected to be given to drivers. Implementation is said to last four weeks and is being offered free to the end-user fleet. 

The process, which will be introduced next week (20th January), are backed by suppliers and will be available for the next four months. It is aimed at European carriers operating between 50 to 300 vehicles. The countries expecting to benefit from the improvements offered by Fleet Logistics include the UK, France, Belgium, Netherlands, Italy, Spain, Germany and Austria. The innovations will also be available to international, multi-country fleets with a carrier capacity of up to 1,500 vehicles. 

Vinzenz Pflanz, Fleet Logistics’ chief commercial officer, commented: “To generate attractive pricing, Fleet Logistics is financially supporting this product and has reached out to various players in the automotive industry to ensure the best sourcing approach supported by manufacturers, dealers and leasing companies on a local and international basis.”

He added: “We do not believe that there are appropriate fleet management solutions generally available to meet the needs of small to medium sized fleet operators. By using the new Fleet Logistics’ product, the small to medium sized client will have a set of standardized policies and tools to create clear automated process flows, cost transparency and professional invoice control.”

Fleet Logistics, a subsidiary of German group TÜV SÜD, has been active since 1996, and is based at headquarters in Munich. The group serves over twenty countries across the European Union.
