What Fleet Managers (Really) Do

What is a fleet manager?


It seems like a straightforward question, but the truth is, fleet managers have evolving job duties that vary from business to business.

Generally, a fleet manager is in charge of maximizing efficiency, productivity and safety for a fleet’s vehicles and drivers. They are typically responsible for ensuring vehicles are maintained and ready to use, and their company’s drivers are being safe and compliant.

Small- to medium-sized businesses and large enterprise fleets can benefit from a fleet manager. They have unique insights into fuel use, vehicle maintenance, driver safety, federal and state regulations, and fleet expenses.

Keep in mind that:

  1. The fleet manager wears many hats. They likely have multiple titles and duties rolled into one.
  2. This person works with many critical employees across the business.
  3. Their duties and title will differ depending on the industry, vehicle types and company size.
