Plan now for a tough future

Published to the CV Show website on

Fleet managers must plan now for a tough 2011, warns The Fuelcard Company.  It says fuel price hikes have helped push inflation to 3.2%, from 3.1% in September.  With more increases in both fuel duty and VAT due on 1 January, "businesses must act now" to ensure survival, says the firm.  Fuel prices will "inflict more pain" in the short term."  Jakes de Kock, marketing director, says the firms that survive "into next year" will be those that plan ahead and cut costs.  Vehicle use monitoring or economy driver training can be valuable in this context and the Fuelcard Company's data can help operators monitor its effects.
