History and Evolution of Fleet Replacement Vehicle Cycling Parameters

In reviewing the history of fleet management from the 1950s to present, a single question stands out among all others as the most frequently asked: “How long should I keep my vehicles in service?” Today, a growing number of fleets are shifting to more flexible vehicle replacement cycles based on prevailing market conditions, rather than predetermined mileage and/or months in service parameters. Enabling this shift is the growing sophistication of lifecycle optimization modeling.
