Fleet Replacement Plans No Longer Have to Be Driven by Anticipated Budget Dollars but by Lowest Cost of Ownership to Get Out From Under the Replacement Backlog

Our trusted TSC advisors demonstrate how smart fiscal and operational decisions can be based on readily available data. We then use this data to create their lowest cost of ownership fleet plan.

Transportation Services Co. (TSC), an innovative fleet management services company working with school districts, municipalities, private transportation contractors and not-for-profits, has created a roadmap for these organizations to feasibly replace aging fleet in an increasingly difficult environment. TSC recently published a white paper on this subject, which has been well-received, titled A New Model for the Old School: Fleet Management & Replacement Planning You Can Trust.

“In working with our clients, we found that many had been accustomed to doing things the same way for a long time and just hadn’t been made aware of the cost-effective options now available to them regarding fleet replacement,” stated Tod Eskra, President of TSC. “We are suggesting a paradigm shift in the way fleet managers, financial officers, administrators, and executives manage their fleets.

“Our team of industry and fleet experts developed this white paper to help further educate those seeking options on how they can address their fleet replacement needs in an affordable fashion through a new, unique approach. It’s really a simple concept but a different and forward-thinking way to look at this situation and officials have found that a brief investment of 30 minutes with us to learn more about their options can be incredibly beneficial.”

TSC is a member of the TransPar Group of Companies, which is a partnership of three leading organizations from across the transportation industry that offer a diverse portfolio of products and services representing the most comprehensive and responsible solutions available. The company of trusted advisors continues to grow by helping its clients with fleet analysis and planning, maintenance program development, and implementing risk management solutions. With a growing portfolio, TSC provides clients with customized fleet management solutions to reduce costs and improve their transportation operations.

“Most customers we meet with often determine their annual capital replacement requirements based on how much money is available rather than determining when in that cycle the total cost of ownership is lowest,” added Eskra. “Our trusted TSC advisors demonstrate how smart fiscal and operational decisions can be based on readily available data. We then use this data to create their lowest cost of ownership fleet plan. From fleet management analysis and planning to vehicle acquisition and funding, an organization’s often unsafe, aging fleet does not have to take focus off of the top priority of providing a quality education to the children within the community.”
