LeasePlan Benchmarks the Consumer Goods Industry

LeasePlan Consumer Goods benchmark topline results

Following last year’s Technology Industry Benchmark we are pleased to share with you LeasePlan’s latest benchmark on the Consumer Goods industry. With benchmarking, organisations evaluate various aspects of their company car policy and fleet processes in comparison to industry peers. This allows organizations to develop improvement plans or adapt specific best practices, usually with the aim of increasing the performance of the business. Benchmarking may be a one-off event, but is often treated as a continuous process in which organizations continually seek to improve their practices. Companies in the Consumer Goods Industry are active in daily life products, such as health care products, cosmetics and food.This industry benchmark is based on client research, LeasePlan’s fleet data and our own expertise. This infographic shows the consolidated results over the countries in scope.

Autonomous driving technologies are developing fast. But, despite the buzz around the potential impact of self-driving options, aspects such as timing, uptake and penetration remain hard to predict. The new technologies that make autonomous driving possible also bring with them possibilities for completely new mobility models and services. In addition, developments based on networks, sensors, mobile communication, real-time information, and new levels of connectivity are changing our view on mobility. It is expected that autonomous vehicles (AVs) will open up the way for on-demand driving solutions: a car when and where it is needed. But, the big question that is begging for an answer is how and in what measure these disruptive technologies could impact fleet.
