Fleet management can be daunting for international equipment rental organizations. You may be operating multiple depots across countries and even continents, which makes situating equipment a complex matter. In addition, you’re under continuous pressure to “work out the differences” across diverse locations. This way you can optimize utilization rates, sustain healthy margins across all locations, and reduce added transport expense.
At the same time, you want to fulfil your organization’s commitment. So you can meet current and future fleet management needs for all depots. So that they all realize success for their equipment fleet rentals and sales.
The goal needs to be healthy, sustainable balance, not a juggling act. It’s easy to make a decision to purchase and move equipment around the world. What’s essential to make that decision work is a solution that offers both a full overview and detailed information for each depot before you start moving equipment. You’ll want to know location-specific answers to questions that include:
- What is the utilization rate of the equipment request?
- What are the statistics from the quotation pipeline for rental and sales?
- Is the required equipment available at another depot?
- Is the request within the depot’s budget?
- What is the prediction based on the historic data?
