With rising maintenance costs from an aging fleet, Sprig Electric was only able to replace vehicles after they required too many major repairs. The company’s non-uniform fleet was outdated and inefficient in a market with increasing demand for environmentally friendly business practices.
Sprig Electric worked with Enterprise Fleet Management to find an optimal Total Cost of Ownership for its vehicles. Together, they developed a proactive replacement plan to improve fuel economy and offset rising costs. The company also needed to find a perfect balance between fuel efficiency and power to meet the payload requirements of larger jobs, while still projecting a more eco-friendly image.
By negotiating directly through Enterprise with the manufacturer, Sprig Electric was able to secure greater incentives for volume purchases. The company also implemented a fuel card program for better tracking andfuel management, as well as a fixed cost maintenance program to increase preventative maintenance and lower the frequency of major repairs.
