The Fleet Forum ‘Fleet management emergency preparedness’ guide provides practical advice for those working in disaster-prone contexts within aid and development organisations. The guide is aimed mainly at logistics and fleet management staff involved in the day-to-day operations of an emergency, but can be used by anyone who is supporting relief operations. The advice provided in the guide is geared specifically towards the preparation for an emergency response; it is not meant to guide fleet managers in setting up a fleet management policy, rather respective organisations should already be applying basic fleet management practices.
Fleet Forum would like to express our gratitude to USAID / OFDA. With their support, since 2013 Fleet Forum has trained over 350 staff members and provided them with knowledge and skills that will support them to manage the fleet better, to reduce the risk of road traffic accidents and the environmental footprint of the organisation. In 2016 they enabled us to develop fleet management emergency preparedness training materials for those working in disaster-prone contexts within aid and development organisations. The materials consist of an e-learning module, a 1-day classroom training and this guide.
