By Team Writer / 3 years ago

Personal use charges have increased in 2016 up $4.00 to $132.00. The numbers point to various changes throughout the fleet. A few of these changes are assignments of company owned vehicles, and use of these vehicles when not working, safety and concerns about liability have also contributed to this increase. The personal use of company vehicles seems that it will always be a challenge of the fleet company.

Key Takeaways:
