Best practice

Travelsmart is an initiative asking people to make voluntary changes to their travel choices to decrease greenhouse emissions, climate change, pollution and infrastructure costs; and for better health. Government TravelSmart information advises that successful energy-efficient fleet management depends on:

  • an annual review process aimed at reducing fleet size and maximising vehicle use
  • selecting the most appropriate, energy efficient vehicle for the task.

Travelsmart also advocates the following tools to support best practice fleet management:

  • a policy on transport management
  • management support and cost structures for the operation of the fleet
  • a flexible pool of cars to maximise sharing of vehicles
  • minimal home garaging
  • driver training.
