This section examines fleet sizes of survey respondents and their fleet changes. More fleets reported increased inventory this year than last year (42% this year versus 36% last year), while fewer respondents reported decreases in inventory (12% this year versus 14% last year). Similar to last year, the main reason reported for increases was due to additional agency responsibilities. However, this year, the majority of those who listed a reason for their fleet decrease said this was due to improved fleet efficiency.
New for this year, Utilimarc provided benchmarking data from its database of its clients detailing vehicle age, mileage, maintenance costs, labor hours, and miles per gallon across 12 vehicle types. Data is derived from 39 of Utilimarc’s municipal benchmarking clients’ (cities, states, and counties) 51,253 assets. Each of the numbers presented are an average over the years 2012-2014.
Also new is information about trends within the federal fleet, including vehicle age, utilization, breakdown of inventory by fuel type, and cost per mile.
