Fleet Sourcing for 2023MY Remains Tough; Less Vehicles Available & Incentives Dwindling

In Automotive Fleet’s 108th video episode of State of the Fleet Industry, gain insight into the state of the fleet market as presented by AF Editor Mike Antich.

🎙Topics include:

  • Order-to-delivery times have increased for trucks and vans, which, in turn, has increased demand for long-term rentals, especially when a vocational vehicle is damaged in an accident.

  • Pricing is another sore point with almost all fleet managers as fleet incentives have decreased.

  • An ongoing trend is the bundling of related services into the new-vehicle sales prices.

  • Multi-year vehicle sourcing constraints have caused some companies to reconsider or delay business expansions, especially when the fleet vehicle is the primary revenue-generation tool.
