Fleet suppliers are optimistic about their prospects for growth, according to the latest optimism index. Figures from a new Timetric report show that 42 per cent of suppliers feel more optimistic about revenue growth in 2013 than they did a year ago. Meanwhile, 39 per cent of respondents remain neutral and only 15 per cent are less optimistic about the future.
This widespread positivity is likely due to an increase in car sales and low emission vehicle uptake. Additionally, many fleets across the UK are investing in vans, swapping out old vehicles for newer, fuel-efficient models. Over the first five months of 2013, new van registrations have increased 13 per cent, with sales to fleets rising 19 per cent.
This year’s positive trends are a continuation of 2012’s, which saw a nine per cent increase in overall fleet size despite shrinking procurement budgets across the board. Rising fuel prices throughout the UK have not halted growth either.
Going forward, fleet suppliers will focus on ways to improve operational efficiency and expand in current markets. In addition, pricing pressure is becoming more prominent.
