What is the definition of Fleet Management?
Fleet management is the long term reduction of a customer’s total material handling costs. This results in increased material handling efficiency via a planned replacement program which optimizes the economic life of the equipment.
Consider this fact: “An independent survey of 500 companies revealed that only 6% of the respondents knew the maintenance cost-per-hour of each lift truck in their fleet. Only 25% of those surveyed reported having an information system that tracked the labor and parts by lift truck.”
What are some of Delaware Valley Lift Trucks benefits:
-Your company will enjoy the most “productive” segment of a lift truck’s life cycle at the minimum cost during its period of use.
-Ergonomics will make operators more productive.
-Downtime will be drastically reduced.
-Enhance company profits by reducing excessive or unnecessary maintenance costs on material handling equipment.
The 80/20 Rule
On average, over the life of a forklift, only 20% of its cost is ownership. Approximately 80% of total forklift costs are operating costs.
