Van fleet challenges and solutions revealed in new Europcar white paper


A new white paper revealing van fleet managers’ main concerns and the solutions available is now available from Europcar Vans & Trucks.

The mobility specialist surveyed 300 business decision-makers running vans within the UK and found that there are a wealth of unknowns making things difficult for fleets, chief of which is economy uncertainty in the curruent climate.

But fluctuating vehicle demand is also a key issue, due to both the more flexible staffing approaches used these days but also increased van demand in lockdown, as more people turn to home deliveries.

The pandemic has also placed increased focus on the environment; adding to the challenges for fleets from current and forthcoming Clean Air Zones and the need for Euro 6-compliant vans.

To help operators deal with these and other rising challenges, the Europcar white paper reveals a number of solutions. It also sets out how the business can help operators, including by making sure the right vehicles are available, including with specialist equipment where needed, all underpinned by a network of Van Supersites, with local experts.
