Saving on fuel costs is not as simple as discounts or shop-a-dockets for most businesses. Like most areas, reducing usage comes down to some simple strategies that are either not utilised or totally forgotten. Here are a few to think about.
Fuel prices are hard to predict and even harder to understand for the average person. Quick to rise and slow to fall, understanding fuel price changes can be complex and frustrating. Managing fuel as an expense line can be even more so. This is especially true for businesses where fuel can be a significant cost every month.
There is no cut and dried method that works for every organisation. However, here are a few basic things to think about when deciding how to manage this cost in your business. The benefits will be not only to your bottom line but also to your corporate responsibility through a reduction in the environmental impact.

You need to consider the right measures for your business and staff so that fuel costs are managed effectively without causing any undue angst.
