Fleet Budget Optimization Services from Source One

Source One offers Strategic Sourcing Solutions for Fleet Maintenance and Management

Source One’s fleet optimization experts can help you identify the most cost-effective vehicle products and services for your organization’s unique fleet needs.  

Whether you own or lease your fleet, managing the costs of this category can seem like a juggling act with individual components influencing one another. Changing your tire brand, for example, can have rippling effects into maintenance schedules, vehicle uptime, and fuel efficiency. Sole-sourcing your fleet from one manufacturer may reduce the skillset needed to maintain the vehicles and limit the number of replacement parts, but could have a negative impact on your operations as OEM recalls, bailouts, or compliance issues frequently emerge in this industry. Or, perhaps your organization needs to re-evaluate your fuel-card strategy to make room for alternative energy sources. With countless moving parts, interconnected silos, how can a single fleet manager be expected to manage these pressures on a limited budget?

Source One is at your service! Our fleet sourcing experts understand that no two fleets are alike – each composed of vehicles serving specific business needs, with varied fuel and maintenance costs. We recognize that fleet sourcing initiatives must be customized to your unique fleet needs, which is why we take a comprehensive approach to optimizing your fleet operations, considering:
