Canada Cartage Offers New Private Fleet Management Tools
Posted: July 26, 2015
TORONTO — A provider of outsourced fleet services, Canada Cartage, is releasing a series of three private truck fleet benchmarking tools to provide senior management teams with research tools to help them assess fleet return on investment.
According to the company, these tools are timely, as a soon-to-be-released study conducted by the Private Motor Truck Council of Canada reveals that 61% of fleets do not benchmark their costs or performance. The information in the three guides is based on objective, third-party research into the pros and cons of private fleet management versus dedicated fleet outsourcing.
With these interactive tools, readers can input information into one of the guides to self-assess their proficiency in fleet management and develop a SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats) analysis of their fleet management. Another guide offers a proprietary “total cost of ownership” calculator that benchmarks fleet costs against Canadian industry standards.
“Our firm offers fleet outsourcing, which is an option that is used by many successful small, medium, and large Canadian companies, but the model isn’t right for everyone”, said President & CEO Jeff Lindsay. “These research guides and interactive tools come at the topic from an objective standpoint, and will help senior decision makers understand which option makes the most sense for their company.”
The first guide in the series, the Fleet Outsourcing Evaluation Guide, is now available for download on the Canada Cartage website.
