THE two key issues SME fleets will be facing in 2023 will be continuing electrification and the impact of the recession, according to the Association of Fleet Professionals (AFP).
Chair Paul Hollick (pictured left) said that that businesses would be looking to fleet managers to deliver more value than before, especially when it came to cost control and carbon savings.
Vehicle Supply Remains A Stumbling Block To Electrification
A key challenge given these objectives, Paul said, was that vehicle supply was likely to remain poor for the whole of 2023, which would inevitably affect the rate of electrification.
In terms of AFP activity, Paul said that the organisation would be issuing its new Tax and Legislation Manifesto in early 2023, designed to set out its thinking in these key areas.
