2. The Fleet

New fleet

Departments within ELM are very dependent on the maximum availability of vehicles in order to efficiently render services.

The delivery of vehicles has been structured to take place over a period of three years, with 182 vehicles delivered in 2013/2014 Financial year. To date 108 light vehicles have been.

3. Fuel Control Measures

To reduce the fuel bill of the municipality Fleet Management Services Department had to implement new stringent measures to effectively control and monitor all fuel issues at ELM fuel depots. The following main measures, among others have been officially implemented on 03 September 2012 to reduce wet stock losses.

  • Fleet Services have refrained from issuing fuel to vehicles which do not comply with the requirements of the Occupational Health and Safety Act and National Road Traffic Act.
  • Implementation of fuel reconciliations on daily basis for effective monitoring of any losses that may occur.
  • Timeous recording of all fuel issues on applicable software.
  • Activation on fuel cutters on less critical fleet to reduce unauthorized use of vehicles.
  • Installation of fuel cutters on all vehicles and activation thereof.
  • Streamlining of all fuel acquisition processes to ensure accountability.

Over and above the manual recording of fuel issues at the filling stations, Fleet Management Services makes use of the AFS system for instant, remote and electronic recording of fuel issues. All data recorded on the referred system is used to verify the details recorded manually at all depots for the information to be imported in to financial system.

Implementation of the fuel dispensing measures has proven to be effective as an immense reduction in the losses has been observed in the last 20 months.
