CLM Fleet Management has produced a free new fleet policy guide to help businesses of all sizes, from SMEs to major corporates. 

For these companies serious considerations have to be made – from day-to-day issues such as suitability of vehicles, to the numerous and complex legal responsibilities that arise when using any vehicle for business purposes.

The guide describes and attempts to resolve them. It also raises a number of questions to help users build the right content to meet the unique requirements of their business, as well as providing links to useful external content, such as advice on smoking in vehicles or the use of mobile phones.

The target audience ranges from full-time fleet managers to finance staff interested in optimising their budgets.

CLM managing director John Lawrence comments: “This new guide has been developed to help businesses of all sizes create a vehicle fleet policy that reflects their specific needs and objectives.

“It can be used by fleet professionals or by any other individual with a degree of responsibility for the operation of the organisation’s vehicles, including those that may not have realised that they operate what constitutes a fleet.

“A well constructed policy is a vital means of controlling the costs associated with running a fleet of any size, and investing time and effort in its development and communication is of extreme importance to any business.

“We hope users of the guide find its content to be of use and value in helping them frame the ideal fleet policy for their business, and would be happy to advise on any or all of the content.”
