Studying Fleet Management in South Africa
Fleet-related costs are generally one of the largest expenses to businesses, especially for companies that have a business model centered on transportation, such as: car rental companies, food distributors or courier services. Because of these expenses, fleet managers need to have a wide range of skills and expertise to be able to effectively lower costs and improve efficiency. The different skills a fleet manager develops will depend on what they study and what direction they choose to take during their careers. However, before a fleet manager can specialise in one area, they need to have a fundamental understanding of what fleet management entails.
