  • What are the components of total cost of ownership?

    There are several key components to total cost of ownership. Some of the most important fleet TCO components include:

    Acquisition Costs - this includes the purchase price of the vehicle, supplier margin, costs to operate the purchasing department, transport and delivery charges, packaging, customs duties, and any associated financing costs.
    Operating Expenses - operating expenses include the cost of operating fleet vehicles. For example, stock management, depreciation costs, fuel, taxes, insurance, administrative costs, etc.
    Repair and Maintenance Costs - this includes all the costs associated with keeping fleet vehicles in good working condition. Fleet maintenance and repair costs may include the cost of new tires and brakes, oil changes, and preventative maintenance work.
    Resale Value - the amount that the vehicle (or fleet) will be sold for when it is retired should also be accounted for in TCO.
    Downtime - when a vehicle is not on the road, it is not providing value. This opportunity cost, or the amount of revenue and goodwill that is lost as a result of downtime, should be considered by fleet managers as a cost to the business.

  • What is total cost of ownership?

    Total cost of ownership refers to the total cost of purchasing and operating a vehicle. This includes all costs associated with the vehicle for the length of ownership.

    While total cost of ownership commonly relates to the costs associated with a single vehicle, fleet total cost of ownership refers to the cost of purchasing and operating an entire fleet.

    There are many components of fleet total cost of ownership. In general, it includes the purchase price, as well as the costs to operate and maintain fleet vehicles. Many fleet managers also consider downtime as an expense. 

    Fleet total cost of ownership is often referred to as TCO or fleet management costs.

  • How to reduce total cost of ownership?

    There are many ways to reduce fleet total cost of ownership. First and foremost, fleet managers should focus on effectively tracking TCO variables such as downtime, maintenance and repair needs, as well as operating costs. As a result of accurate tracking, fleet managers can reduce TCO using the detailed information provided.

    In general, some of the most effective ways to reduce total cost of ownership include:

    Acquiring the right vehicles for your business and industryImplementing new technology that will assist in reducing day-to-day operating expensesInvesting in eco-friendly vehiclesPerforming preventative maintenance on fleet vehiclesReplacing older fleet vehicles before resale value and maintenance costs are significantly impacted by the vehicle’s age

  • Why is TCO important?

    TCO is important to calculate because it helps fleet managers and owners better manage their fleet. Fleet total cost of ownership demonstrates the true costs of owning and operating a fleet. Therefore, using this information, fleet managers and owners can track costs and determine how to optimize fleet performance to maximize their return on investment. Fleet total cost of ownership can also help fleet managers recognize and address safety-related issues and identify how new technology can assist with fleet management. Most importantly, TCO can help with important financial and business decisions. 

    For example, accurate TCO figures can assist with detailed financial reporting, decisions about when to replace fleet vehicles, maximizing profitability and ROI, and monitoring vehicle and driver performance.

  • How do you calculate total cost of ownership?

    To calculate total cost of ownership, many fleet managers and owners can use the following TCO formula:

    Individual Total Cost of Ownership = Acquisition Costs + Operating Expenses + Maintenance Costs [+ Downtime Costs*] - Resale Value

    This formula will provide the TCO for a single vehicle in your fleet. To find fleet total cost of ownership, simply add the TCO for each vehicle in your fleet together.

    Please keep in mind that this formula may not be the same for fleets in all industries. It is important to consider the costs associated with your specific industry and fleet in order to arrive at an accurate TCO calculation.
