Fleets that assign sedans to individual employees are vastly oversized and could be reduced by 50% by adopting car sharing with no loss of service.
So says Julian Espiritu, managing director of Abrams Carsharing Advisors. The 28-year veteran of the car rental and car sharing industries made that remark in a wide-ranging interview with Fleet Management Weekly on the fastest-growing means of obtaining access to an automobile.
Espiritu was one of the pioneers at Zipcar, the world’s largest car sharing company, and since joining Abrams has consulted on dozens of car sharing ventures for business fleets, large and small.
“The old sedan fleet model is to assign a vehicle full time to every employee who needs access to a car,” he said. “And every time I’ve seen a car sharing program adopted in a corporate environment, in a short period of time they find they could have reduced their fleet by half, even if all of their cars are assigned.”

Enhanced data visibility enables fleet managers to diversify supplier relationships and reduce total cost of ownership.
The Smart Cube has launched Smart Fleet, a new product for fleet managers that will transform how they manage their fleets and engage with suppliers.
Businesses today typically use multiple fleet suppliers, all providing different reporting data, in diverse formats, with varying levels of accuracy. As a result, many fleet managers still use manual spreadsheets for their day-jobs, which can be unreliable and time-consuming to maintain and offer inflexible and limited reporting. Increasing expectations from senior executives for data to be presented in a visually appealing format puts further pressure on fleet managers.
