Fleet Management in South Africa

This report focuses on the fleet management sector, a highly competitive sector, where players vie to manage the fleets of corporations and government agencies. An estimated 11% of a total vehicle population of 11.5 million vehicles are lease passenger vehicles and approximately 70% of all new cars purchased are for the corporate market.

A competitive Environment

Of South Africa’s corporate fleet of 1.3 million passenger cars, an estimated 100,000 vehicles are on a full management leasing (FML) arrangement. While this figure remains low in comparison to international standards, there is a growing market awareness of the need for fleet management products and services. Companies are expected to provide integrated systems which encompass all aspects of managing a fleet, including the provision of finance, driver management and training, maintenance of the vehicles, the payment of fines, and e-toll administration.

Challenges and Opportunity

With fleet operating costs currently increasing at 12% per annum a year and input costs expected to increase as a result of the fall of the Rand, fleet management companies are considering the acquisition of companies essential in the value chain, as well as the implementation of cost-cutting strategies. Expansion into sub-Saharan Africa is viewed as a promising opportunity as there is less competition and the promise of good returns.
