Town Finds Savings With Enterprise Fleet Management

The Town of Mount Olive is partnering with Enterprise Fleet Management to upgrade its fleet while also reducing costs. Through the partnership, the Town expects to save over $300,000 over the next ten years.

Enterprise Fleet Management is helping the Town replace its aging fleet with a variety of vehicles that will reduce maintenance costs, be more fuel efficient and more reliable. These new vehicles will be equipped with the latest in safety and crash-avoidance technology. Law enforcement and all other Town departments will be receiving the initial group of new vehicles starting in January of 2019.

The Town of Mount Olive currently operates 49 vehicles not including firefighting equipment. Enterprise has helped us right size our current fleet of vehicles, and over a five year period will replace all vehicles with newer, more fuel efficient models that require far less maintenance. That will save the Town money that can be used to improve the Town’s overall financial health.

Enterprise Fleet Management operates one of the nation’s largest service departments, comprising more than 100 Automotive Service Excellence (ASE)-certified technicians. The National Service Department has been recognized with the ASE “Blue Seal of Excellence” award for 21 consecutive years, an industry record.

After analyzing the Town’s needs, Enterprise Fleet Management identified ways to manage its fleet more efficiently and developed a strategy that includes replacing outdated vehicles every five years. Enterprise is delivering an initial 20 vehicles to the Town in the first year.

The Town has been operating a fleet of 49 vehicles 35 of which are over 10 years old. Half of those vehicles are over 20 years old. These new vehicles will provide a 40 percent improvement in fuel economy as well as reducing maintenance costs by as much as 66 percent.

“Our customized program will help the Town of Mount Olive operate more efficiently by modernizing its fleet to maximize performance, reduce risk, save time and cut costs,” said Mount Olive Mayor Joe Scott.

Commissioner Barbara Kornegay brought this program to the Mount Olive Town Board’s attention in November after seeing an article in the North Carolina League of Municipalities “Southern Cities” publication. The Mount Olive Town Board of Commissioners unanimously approved this agreement at their December 3rd regularly scheduled Board meeting.

    They will find out that they should have been updating their fleet a little along. A lease is only good in the beginning. Ask around!
