Ayming Reduces Car Fleet Expenditures by $47K

Situation

The Challenge

This manufacturer of products for the construction and building industry had already attempted to renegotiate costs and contracts with their fleet manager, but wanted to validate if further savings could be found for its 82 vehicle car fleet.

Results

Ayming confirmed the manufacturer's needs in terms of operative and qualitative requirements, mapping expenditures and identifying areas to optimize. Ayming also built and managed a formal RFP process, preparing an assessment of RFP results with recommendations on vehicle selection per category, lease terms, management & service fees. Then, a quantitative and qualitative comparison of supplier services and one-time fees was conducted. Following the customer’s selection of fleet manager & options, Ayming performed advanced negotiations to confirm and secure best prices.

 

The result was an optimized car policy that brought the number of selector vehicles down from 23 to 8 with more cost efficient vehicles for each respective type of vehicle (SUV, Pickup). There was also a reduction in the number of manufacturers and models within selector categories to obtain manufacturer rebates. Lower financing rates were secured, and best practices were introduced for fuel rebates and tire selection. Following the deployment of Ayming's strategy, the manufacturer is now saving $47K per year.
