What is Grey Fleet?

We don’t know if it’s the name or the invisibility of it, but there is a lot of confusion over the so-called “grey” fleet. The reality is that “grey” fleet is not grey at all. It has a very black and white definition. Although, you can often overlook the cost of this area, which can be significant… If your employees have to travel on company business and use their own transport to do this, that is the “grey” fleet. Whether it’s their car, a friends car, a horse, or a boat, it’s your responsibility to ensure both the employee and vehicle are “ fit for the purpose“.

What Does this Really Mean?

Addressing how to manage grey fleet is surprisingly simple. There are loads of companies trying to sell you services that you don’t need. They will tell you that HSE insists you need to train drivers to use telematics, but you only need 3 things:

  • A robust policy – a process you and your team adhere to in order to ensure that your employees and all other road users are safe on the road.
  • An audit trail – there is no use having a great policy if you can’t prove it is communicated and understood.
  • A process to review and improve the process.
