Any broadcast organization running a fleet of vehicles knows how important it is to optimize usage of that fleet. The vehicles you send out to remote venues are an essential link in the chain for your news, entertainment and sports content. The video feeds they relay back feed the endless need for new information, to keep broadcasts fresh and relevant and viewership numbers high.
Operating a taxi or limo company can be a profitable business, as there will always be a demand for high-quality limo services and ground transportation.
Last March, a Fort Bend County, Texas teenager stole a church bus and drove it down a highway in a wild chase. Video footage of the event was aired on the A&E show "Live PD," and all the world could see how a 15-year-old boy recklessly drove the bus and refused to stop for police. The bus crossed a lane and struck a barrier before going into oncoming traffic. It stopped only after it rammed a sheriff’s cruiser.
If your organization owns or manages a fleet of vehicles, you cannot afford to overlook the financial considerations involved in each business decision relating to that fleet. Among the most important of these is taking steps to ensure that you get maximum ROI from every one of your vehicles. Every step you take to lengthen the lifespan of your fleet will help improve that equation and add to your organization’s bottom line.
Once your organization has made the significant investment necessary to support a fleet of vehicles, it is a smart business decision to optimize the usage of each individual vehicle as well as the fleet as a whole. In that way you will get the most out of your investment dollars while enabling the fleet to contribute to business objectives rather than being a drain on the organization.
