NAFA’s Essentials of Fleet Management is designed to connect newer fleet professionals into a national network of colleagues and provide the hands-on tools and resources that will help make your fleet a success.

Build skills—and relationships—that will help you move forward in the fleet community.

Through this program, you’ll learn to develop fleet policy templates and to implement comprehensive tools to help better optimize your organization’s operations. With these tools, learn how to determine total cost of ownership (TCO) over the lifetime of an asset, address risk management strategies and discuss Vehicle Equivalency Unit (VEU) analysis, and learn what measures matter most when analyzing your fleet.

  • Vehicle Selection Matrix

  • Lifecycle Cost Analysis Spreadsheet
  • Policy Templates
  • VEU Analysis Worksheet
  • Fleet Reporting Matrix
  • Fuel Efficiency Performance Measures

…and take home a toolkit of examples and templates to implement in your fleet immediately!

Who Should Attend?

Essentials of Fleet Management was created by fleet professionals and is geared toward those who are new, or relatively new, to their roles, and provides an immersion into the fleet management world in a safe-to-learn environment.
