Fleet Benchmarking Program




Monitoring Where and How to Take Action


Benchmarking allows you to directly compare vehicles, drivers, and departments. / iStock, 2008.Fleet benchmarking programs enable comparison of fleet performance by vehicle, employee, and/or department, both within and between local governments, revealing opportunities to improve fuel efficiency and overall performance. They provide a strong basis for goal setting and insight into strategies for fleet management.

Comparison can be done for any given number of indicators, including fuel efficiency, preventative maintenance and repair costs, and employee idling. Benchmarking helps fleet managers understand where to take action and how to improve fleet performance.


Benchmarking allows fleet managers to easily identify the following:

  • Activities resulting in reduced GHG emissions and related pollutants.
  • Top and poor performing vehicles, employees, and/or departments.
  • Green fleet action plan elements that are succeeding.
  • Where and how to take action to improve fuel efficiency.
