Fleet Management Division (FMD) was created as a separate profit centre for better management of vehicles and other mobile equipment under DGPC in June 2014. The fleet services for vehicles and machinery are presently centralised under FMD and hired out on a chargeable basis to the various formations in DGPC.
In the beginning, the intention was to spin off as a separate subsidiary in the long run if found to be commercially viable. Considering that FMD has been functioning as a profit centre for several years, a review of the business performance was necessary. Hence, an initiative “advance fleet management system” was incorporated to review the performance of the existing current profit centre model and explore other models for mileage and hiring. Ultimately, this is intended to spearhead the strategy to outsource non-core shared activities.
