Posted by Juan Booysen on 2021/03/09 10:30 AM

Many years ago, in a not-so-distant province on the coast of South Africa, there was a fleet manager named Matthew. Matthew worked at a large industrial company and was responsible to manage a fleet of over 100 vehicles.

Fleet managers also need to be wary of fuel fraud as it can have detrimental effects on the overall running of the fleet company.
