fleet consultant

4C Management Solutions is an expert, independent fleet management consultancy providing quality services to vehicle and plant fleet operators.

Fleet operators are constantly under pressure for improved efficiency and effectiveness.

Having an independent and experienced fleet manager available on call can make the difference.

Our approach is to work not only for you but with you. Firstly we set about understanding your needs, your challenges and your business. We want to understand your business environment, what works well and what doesn’t. We then work to provide practical solutions. We pride ourselves on our professional approach and always use best practice, codes or our significant in-house resources to provide you with well-reasoned and evidence based recommendations. We will review options with you and continue to refine our deliverables until you are satisfied. Our goal is to exceed your expectations.

Our goals are to:

  • Exceed our client's expectations
  • Support business improvement
  • Deliver value for money
  • Provide sustainable solutions
  • Contribute to the fleet management industry body of knowledge
