Grey Fleet Management

Grey Fleet Management

 

GMP Drivercare’s Grey Fleet Management service will assist you in managing the financial, legal and environmental issues that surround an employee’s use of their privately-owned cars for business.

What is a Grey Fleet driver?

Grey fleet drivers are employees that drive their own cars for business. Most organisations will, on occasions, find it highly convenient to allow staff to use their private car for business travel. Indeed, having grey fleet drivers can be more beneficial for some organisations that do not travel high business mileage.

However, recently there has been a rise in the costs and legal responsibilities for employers in relation to employees using private cars for business. Financial impacts of Grey Fleet usage include excessive mileage claims, staff demands for additional remuneration, added administration and unexpected driver downtime due to accidents or breakdowns.

Legally, employers have the same Duty of Care towards employees, irrespective of whether they drive their own car on business or a company provided vehicle. The Health & Safety at Work Act and the Corporate Manslaughter Act (to name but two laws out of nearly a dozen that affect business journeys) make no distinction between the use of corporate and Grey Fleet cars.

How we can help?

GMP offers expert assistance in managing every aspect of your Grey Fleet, from Mileage Management reporting to Accident Management and Driving Licence checks for your employees to ensure Duty of care. Our Fleet management team will work with you and your employees to ensure that they and their vehicles are compliant.
