Strategy: Commercial Fleet & Trucking Market

Why strategy in a world of cheap emails?

Success depends on connecting seemingly disparate dots, drawing insights across time, creating a competitive advantage … and only then implementing tactics like email campaigns. In other words:

  • Don’t work with the same information everyone else has
  • Don’t do what everyone else is doing
  • Don’t focus only on the near-term

What kinds of projects are strategy-level?

Many decisions can potentially have significant consequences, like:

  • Entering or exiting markets or subverticals
  • Modifying the offering that impacts a substantial customer base
  • Resource allocation that has many months if not years to pay back
  • Evaluating opportunities in response to emerging or predicted trends

Strategy is the exercise to identify and gather all relevant information before making a decision to commit resources towards initiatives. This can only be achieved with a partner that intimately understands your fleet market, and has a track record of guiding customers with their long-term strategic direction.

What happens if you do not invest in strategy?

Lacking strategic clarity is the proverbial “cart before the horse” situation. Without strategy, decisions are not grounded in reality but on unvalidated assumptions. The teams do not understand or align with the vision. Execution suffers from cost over-runs, lost time or missed opportunities. Results can vary unpredictably from no impact, to positive, to sometimes catastrophically negative.

What are the consequences for sales and marketing teams that aren't guided by strategy?

Commercial fleet is a very competitive niche. The market is finite and fairly mature, while at the same time new sectors and disrupters emerge from unexpected places.

ProsperFleet has built the most complete and consistent dataset on fleets in the United States across fleet size, vehicle types, industries, and geography. Without this expansive view that’s missing in other sources such as magazine subscriber lists, surveys and general B2B data, decisions – and the accompanying revenue and profitability – are going to underperform.

How does ProsperFleet solve these strategic problems?

ProsperFleet’s strategic engagements provide the following:

  • Gather and organize current state; identify unknowns, present unified view for stakeholder alignment
  • Document the envisioned future state, and the paths to achieve them
  • A template to follow for evaluating and making decisions
  • Recommendations based on projected outcomes along with an execution plan, often carrying through to implementing these tactics
