Government Fleet has announced the Leading Fleets for 2024. The awards program, co-produced with the American Public Works Association and sponsored by Ford Pro, recognizes operations that are performing at a high level, particularly in fleet leadership, competitiveness and efficiency, planning for the future, and overcoming challenges. 

The 50 Leading Fleets represent the best in the industry. Rankings for the top 20 fleets as well as the top fleets in size categories: No. 1 small fleet (499 or fewer assets), No. 1 mid-size fleet (500-999 assets), and No. 1 large fleet (1,000 or more assets) will be announced at the Government Fleet Expo & Conference in May and featured in Government Fleet. 

Criteria for the award includes: 

  • Efficiency, effectiveness, and modernity of the fleet operation. 
  • How the operation tracks metrics. 
  • How the operation prioritizes and exhibits leadership within its team, with customers, within its local community, and within the overall fleet community. 
  • How the operation ensures competitiveness and efficiency. 
  • The future vision of the operation and steps taken to get there. 
  • How the operation addresses and overcomes its biggest challenges.
