Fleet management case studies

At Total Motion we assist businesses of all sizes and in all industry sectors to reduce their costs and improve their fleet management.

In fact our combined client cost improvement total has now reached £290m and continues to grow.

Here are a few case study examples of the ways in which we’ve been able to help our customers:

CASE STUDY 01: Managed funding helps global service provider reduce leasing costs by more than £700,000.


With a fleet of more than 350 vehicles, this global service provider wanted to see if it could reduce its vehicle leasing costs without adversely impacting its business or its drivers. Historically, the company had always sourced three quotes for each vehicle on a “contract hire with full maintenance” basis.

We analysed the fleet and implemented a managed funding structure based upon non-maintenance contracts, with a separate maintenance and management arrangement with Total Motion. This meant that each time a vehicle was replaced the best quotation from more than 15 providers was taken – delivering a reduction in like-for- like monthly costs of between £30 and £104.

CASE STUDY 02: Total Motion’s flexible fleet policy saves construction services company £200,000 per year

Total Motion worked with a national construction services company who had a fleet of 80 cars and 270 commercial vehicles. To suit the fluctuations of the business and improve the management of fleet servicing, maintenance and repair, we designed and implemented a new flexible fleet policy.

This resulted in 30% of the fleet having the flexibility to be returned at any time, reducing cost and improving operations.

CASE STUDY 03: Total Motion’s operational input saves global pharma business $18m over two years

A global pharmaceutical business operating 15,000 vehicles in Europe, wanted to reduce its running costs and improve the way in which its fleet was managed by consolidating through one central location with a single operating procedure.

Over a two year period we delivered a centralised management facility, established uniform operating procedures throughout Europe and changed the suppliers – delivering a cost saving in excess of $18m.

CASE STUDY 04: Reworking of fleet policy by Total Motion saves global plc £228,000 in first year

A global plc was running 3,000 cars, vans and HGVs in the UK and was keen to become more cost efficient. Total Motion reworked the plc’s whole fleet policy – moving the cars and vans to hybrid leases with shared profit maintenance and introducing sale and leaseback with pay on use maintenance for HGVs. We also advised on fuel management, insurance and cash for car, saving the business £228,000 in the first year.

CASE STUDY 05: Total Motion helps implement total change at national support services company

In 2007 Total Motion was asked by the financial director of a national support services company to completely reorganise its fleet of 400 plus vehicles.

Our brief also entailed implementing a sustainable plan for the future to deal with cost reduction and control, resource, road risk and health and safety, green issues, business requirements, funding and utilisation and usage.

Total Motion succeeded in redirecting all internal resources from the fleet, establishing a complete fleet policy and operating process as well as putting in place a 10 year plan for the fleet. Since we got involved the company has also been able to cut fleet costs by more than 35%.

CASE STUDY 06: Healthcare provider sees fleet costs reduced by £7m and resource hours by 9,000 in 17 months

A healthcare provider with more than 600 vehicles wanted to reduce fleet costs, improve compliance and minimise the resource allocated to its fleet. Over a 17 month period Total Motion restructured the fleet management and vehicle profile to deliver these savings.

Working closely with the senior management team, we created and implemented a new and dynamic system that was able to meet both operational and cost requirements, supporting the entire business at every level, including customers and patients.

CASE STUDY 07: Complete reorganisation saves global engineering and aerospace business $13 million plus

A global engineering and aerospace business with more than 6,000 vehicles approached us to reorganise its fleet and create a uniform process across its business covering 31 countries.

We were tasked with making changes to company cars and commercials, salary sacrifice and employee owned schemes, grey fleet, vehicle rental, management resource, software and risk and compliance.

By undertaking a complete fleet reorganisation, we were able to save the client more than $13 million as well as reducing its internal resource by 97 per cent.
