As 2018 comes to an end, fleet owners are looking for new tools and tactics to use to help reduce their costs in the coming year. These five strategies will help you reduce your fleet fuel spend in 2019 and beyond.

  1. Consider Greening Your Fleet

What this means is that as you choose new vehicles for your fleet, consider adding hybrid vehicles that operate more fuel efficiently or downsizing to smaller vehicles for your fleet that consume less fuel on a day-to-day basis.
