As Fleet Manager, you surely know which needs your business has with regard to vehicles and which solutions are best suited to your drivers’ circumstances. Sometimes, however, it can be good idea to broaden your perspective and ask whether there may be more aspects to consider when the time comes to upgrade your vehicle fleet.
