Vehicle Supply Chain Challenges for the Fleet Industry in 2023
In terms of challenges with fleet asset procurement, 2023 appears to be continuing the legacy from the previous two years. Be prepared for ongoing long lead times between orders and deliveries, higher acquisition costs, and possibly even occasional order cancellations. Many fleet managers say they have poor trust that they will actually receive the vehicles they order this year .
Although some fleet managers are more certain that they will receive the vehicles they buy, the issue is how long it will take for them to be delivered. Most of the problems that made it difficult to find replacement vehicles that started in the 2021 model year are still present, and fleet managers are worried that they will have an influence on their 2023 purchases. Unfortunately, not having the essential resources can affect anything from fulfilling daily company objectives to finding new talent. Due to this, several fleets are attempting to proactively solve the issue by leasing fleet vehicles or prolonging the lives of their present assets’ vehicles.
More people using fleet leasing
As was already said, fleet leasing offers a fantastic possibility for businesses struggling with the acquisition of assets. a report from Expert Market Research claims, “In 2021, the market for leasing light commercial vehicles reached a size of USD 50.5 billion. During the projected period of 2023–2028, the market is anticipated to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.10 [percent] to reach USD 80.2 billion by 2027.”
Fleets of all sizes benefit from greater flexibility with leasing when it comes to financial terms, seasonal fleet scaling, purchase prices, and asset disposal. Even fuel and fleet management services are provided by some leasing companies.
Greater Use of Autonomous Vehicles (AVs)
We noted in our 2022 trends that self-driving car services in collaboration with automobile giants are set out to put fully-functional autonomous vehicles on the road.
Fleets are likely to see higher-level autonomous offerings in 2023, specifically Levels 3 and 4, where the vehicle is essentially self-sufficient but a driver is still required to be present to take control as needed. This is because OEMs and aftermarket AV specialists are continuing to build on a functional foundation.
Reduce your Delivery Fleet Operating Cost
To stay competitive in the market, fleet owners necessarily need to look at reducing their operating costs rather than increasing their prices. A couple of tactics that must be used to be cost-effective are:
- Prioritize preventive maintenance
- Monitor how fuel is being consumed by the fleet
- A data-driven approach for replacing vehicles
- Data entry to be automated.
- This will also enable an automated scheduling system.
Give back hours to your fleet personnel each week by incorporating automation in work processes.
