The New Year is bringing with it new challenges for fleet operators across the UK with parts shortages affecting both the supply of new cars along with the repair and maintenance of existing fleet vehicles. The new vehicle supply and parts issue challenges will most likely persist in the automotive industry throughout 2022. So what is the solution for fleet operators to ensure downtime is kept to a minimum? A forward looking approach will play a part in maintaining a steady supply of replacement vehicles, the era of compounds full of vehicles available for immediate delivery is no longer here, forward ordering of the correct vehicles is a must to guarantee vehicle availability for fleets. With manufacturers prioritising the more profitable electric vehicle orders and production quickly moving in the direction of the EV now is the time for fleet operators to consider electric vehicles on the choice list in favour of petrol and diesel options; realistically no other option makes commercial sense.
