TCO comparison with ALD optifleet

What's the right vehicle? A TCO comparison sheds light on the matter!

Efficient, sustainable fleet management is a priority for many fleet managers. That's why more and more companies are relying on the ‘ALD optifleet’ analysis tool to help them choose the vehicles that will meet their needs. ALD optifleet generates a detailed analysis of the total cost of ownership (TCO) and so allows direct, brand-independent comparisons to be made between different models.

Fleets are one of the five items that top the list on company budgets. That's why more and more fleet managers need to find the model and drive systems that are best suited for their business requirements. A broad range of criteria, such as public image, driving comfort and safety but also ecological aspects, need to be taken into account. And attention is also increasingly shifting towards CO2 emissions as a parameter – not least due to legislation and the new WLTP measurement method.

ALD optifleet as the basis for decisions
We operate independently of brands and makes, which means that we're able to put the best advice at your disposal where your choice of vehicle is concerned with the ‘ALD optifleet’ analysis tool. The tool helps its users compare all vehicles within individual categories. The analysis takes account of vehicles' fixed costs, e.g. purchasing price, as well as running costs, e.g. insurance, consumption and maintenance. The analysis is also able to cover any individual requirements that your company might have (e.g. CO2 limits). The tool is therefore able to generate perfect overviews of the total costs for different models that allow you to make sound decisions in your efforts to create a fleet that is economically successful.

Individual advice: the be-all and end-all
Individual considerations are also very important besides taking account of the total cost. On the one hand the intended use and level of utilisation play an important role in the choice of the right vehicle. But on the other hand it's also possible to optimise many other fleet processes besides the actual purchase of the vehicle. And such optimisation may be facilitated with detailed reports and the ongoing analysis of fleet data. The result is transparency, i.e. weak points are made apparent thus making it possible to implement the appropriate measures to enhance fleet-management efficiencies and sustainably reduce costs.
