Fleet coordinators are responsible for managing an organization's vehicle department. These individuals ensure that employee and staff vehicles, ranging from cars to trucks to vans, are in proper working order. They oversee departmental repair shop practices, manage fleet inventory and purchase additional vehicles if needed.
They are also responsible for monitoring vehicle maintenance and repair and ensure that employees are aware of company driving and safety policies. Fleet coordinators typically work in an office environment during a typical work week but may spend some time on the floor with maintenance staff or out in the field.
They are also responsible for managing vehicle inventory and promote the cost-effective and appropriate operation of departmental vehicles. Also, fleet coordinators generate monthly vehicle usage reports, quarterly personal mileage reports and present these to upper management as needed.
In addition to coordinating transportation logistics, fleet coordinators must possess excellent organizational, communication, and management skills and must be adept at computers and spreadsheets. Fleet coordinators can make up to $42,000 per year in the US.
