As a Fleet manager, you are responsible for the management, maintenance, and repair of vehicles owned by major corporations; government agencies; nonprofit organizations; or service organizations such as law enforcement agencies and educational institutions. You are often responsible for fleets ranging in size from under 10 to several hundred to more than a thousand vehicles. Fleet managers are sometimes referred to as Directors of Fleet Operations or Administrators of Corporate Fleets.
A Fleet Manager’s responsibilities generally include the development of fleet administration standards and vehicle operating policies; preparation of annual budgets and periodic reports on operating costs; purchase or lease of vehicles and equipment; and control over maintenance, repair, replacement and disposal of vehicles. In addition, managers may direct fleet-related risk management training, such as safety and accident prevention programs, and negotiate insurance matters.
