Canada Cartage: New Benchmarking Tools Provide Insights Into Effectiveness of Private Truck Fleet Management

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Sept. 15, 2015) - Canada Cartage released a series of three private truck fleet benchmarking tools to provide senior management teams with research tools to help them assess fleet ROI.

These tools are timely, as a soon-to-be-released study conducted by the Private Motor Truck Council of Canada reveals that 61% of fleets do not benchmark their costs or performance. The information in the three guides is based on objective, third-party research into the pros and cons of private fleet management versus dedicated fleet outsourcing.

Readers can input information into one of the interactive guides to self-assess their fleet management proficiency and develop a SWOT analysis. Another guide offers a proprietary "total cost of ownership" calculator that benchmarks fleet costs against Canadian industry standards.

"Our firm offers fleet outsourcing, which is an option that is used by many successful small, medium, and large Canadian companies, but the model isn't right for everyone," says President & CEO Jeff Lindsay. "These research guides and interactive tools come at the topic from an objective standpoint, and will help senior decision makers understand which option makes the most sense for their company."

The first guide in the series - the Fleet Outsourcing Evaluation Guide - is now available for download at www.canadacartage.com/evaluationguide.
