For companies with fleets that operate in several countries, there can be so many headaches to deal with that a global fleet program might seem too difficult to implement. Fortunately, a little planning can go a long way in implementing a successful program.

The first thing you need to do is find out what you have where, and what you’re doing with it. Get to know the people, processes and potential you may have.

Next, define your targets and align them with your company’s corporate goals. Involve all your stakeholders in the decision and make sure they are attainable.

Then, identify a global fleet partner that can help you realize your global goals. The right partner can consult with you to develop a harmonized global fleet program that decreases your administrative burden, drives costs down and streamlines processes. This partner can also guide you through the implementation process and develop global fleet guidelines.

Your international fleet management partner continues the consultative process following implementation to establish benchmarks, such as additional in-country cost savings opportunities, sustainability, driver satisfaction and safety initiatives, among others.

Globalization, while not an easy process, will give you the opportunity to benefit from global account management, increased visibility through global reporting, harmonized services and customer experience, and of course, decreased total cost of ownership on an international scale.
