Strategic Consulting for Fleet Clients

A client-centric approach because every client and every fleet is unique.

ARI is committed to helping our customers’ continually lower costs and find efficiencies across their fleet operations.

The ARI Strategic Consulting Group collaborates with the client to identify the overall objective and the key deliverables. Consulting analysts collect and analyze data from all available sources, completing additional research as needed, perform site visits and leverage the expertise of the entire ARI organization on behalf of our clients. A final report detailing key findings, recommendations and an implementation plan are all part of the project deliverable.

Optimal Operations

We help you determine what the proper size of your fleet should be based on your business needs; decide when to replace vehicles; identify those that have little to no activity; uncover ways to improve fuel economy; and more. Our experts specialize in working with complex fleets and all of our analyses are specific to the client’s parameters and needs. We work to deliver the highest level of actionable recommendations for optimal fleet operations.
