Among the findings of our “Fleet Leaders 2013 Outlook report, released yesterday, are that of the majority of the nation’s fleet leaders, 54% are “cautiously optimistic” about 2013. Only 11% are “very optimistic” and nearly a third, 30%, identify themselves as “neutral” about the year ahead, according to the report, which reflects the views of leaders of fleets of all sizes, from under 25 to more than 1,000 vehicles, in a variety of industries.
“Overall we are encouraged by the optimism being expressed by fleet leaders,” said Tanya Roberts, senior vice president of marketing for GreenRoad. “However, they still see plenty of challenges ahead. Fleet leaders remain concerned about fuel costs and macro-economic uncertainties, and they are interested in new, energy-efficient vehicles and new fleet technology implementations, such as driver performance management, that can mitigate these rising costs.”
