SA Faces Shake-Up In Its Multi-Billion Rand Fleet Management Industry

08 June 2013

The multi-billion rand fleet management industry in South Africa is due for a shake-up that will see it transformed from its stagnation over the past two decades into a dynamic and innovative business addressing the needs of the country – including skills enhancement and job creation.


World authority on fleets John Bell says factors such as global developments, the changing role of fleet managers and the prevailing situation in the South African public sector will radically alter the local approach to an industry that has got bogged down in the traditional structures of ‘yesteryear’.


“In 2013 the fleet management industry in industrialized countries will turn over some R100-billion with South Africa having its fair share.  In the next five years the figure is set to triple. Currently the biggest factor contributing to management pressure to reduce fleet expenses is the general business climate.  We regularly hear the mantra of ‘outsource to save costs’.  This objective is often not achieved even with new players continuing to join the already crowded fleet management market filled with banks, automobile manufacturers, tracking companies, trucking concerns and plethora of others, this objective is often not achieved.




Focus On Bus Accidents Misplaced Says Expert

11 March 2013

One of South Africa’s foremost experts in fleet management has warned that solutions to the horrific bus safety record in recent years is mainly due to maintenance issues not being rectified before the vehicles leave their depots.


FleetPro CEO, John Bell says the emphasis in the transport industry has moved from good maintenance governance to tracking of vehicles. “The tracking systems that companies install provide information as to where the accident took place and the actions of the drivers but have not effected accident reduction. Ninety-six percent of bus accidents are caused by vehicle failure and this is because they are not part of a system that flags the problems at the right time.
