Fleet Funding Analysis

Situation

  • Our client was seeking funding from their sponsor for maintenance and capex on its fleet of vehicles but were struggling with the operational data to demonstrate the requirement and the associated impact on vehicle utilisation.

Swan Activity

  • Working closely with management to determine the site by site data availability and individual formats
  • Consolidated site specific information
  • Determined lead times to upgrade or acquire new fleet vehicles
  • Created a simple one touch extraction process to pull the data from multiple sites in different formats
  • Developed a consolidation tool for all sites which also forecast future funding needs.

Outcome

  • The new tool facilitated the provision of ongoing capex funding for the fleet and importantly helped identify the best returns on either capex or management spend.
