The Service Interface for Real Time Information (SIRI) specifies a European interface standard for exchanging information about the planned, current or projected performance of real-time public transport operations between different computer systems.SIRI comprises a carefully modularised set of discrete functional services for operating public transport information systems. SIRI aims to incorporate of the best of various national and proprietary standards from across Europe and delivers these using a modern XML schema and TransModel terminology and modelling concepts.All SIRI services are provided over a standardised Communications layer, based on a Web Services Architecture.
The electronic age has provided fleetmanagement with a breathtaking array of solutions and tools offering fleet owners and managers countless opportunities to improve the efficiency and effectiveness with which employee mobility needs are met, vehicles and equipment are used, and fleetservices are provided. For many organizations, the biggest challenge presented by the developments of the last few years is trying to determine how best to invest their money in new technology. The key thing to remember is that if it doesn’t clearly contribute to better informed analysis, planning, and decision making, it’s information technology that you probably can do without.
Vehicle availability, or conversely referred to as vehicle downtime, is an important aspect of fleetmanagement that is commonly tracked as a key performance indicator. Industry best practice measures either the total “up-time” a vehicle is available for use or the total “downtime” a vehicle is unavailable for use due to it being in the shop. High vehicle downtime associated with repair and maintenance work can alert fleetmanagement to a problematic vehicle that may warrant review for potential disposal. Currently, OC Fleet does not track vehicle availability. OC Fleet did not purchase the necessary module for its data management system, Fleet Focus, which would allow them to accurately track this information. In the past, OC Fleet has estimated vehicle downtime by calculating the time lapse between the opening and closing of work orders.
The City of Long Beach (City), Department of Financial Management (Department), FleetServices Bureau is requesting information (RFI) from firms with expertise in fuel management software and associated products. The City is currently performing an assessment to identify its Fleet Fuel Management System software and hardware needs to control, measure, and account for fuel dispensed to City vehicles and equipment. The Fuel Management System will also provide ancillary data on vehicle operation and condition. This information will assist us with the subsequent preparation for a request for proposals (RFP) for a new Fleet Fuel Management System. In an attempt to identify all possible products available on the market and gain information on these products, we are issuing this Request For Information (RFI). The procurement is currently planned for later in 2015.
1.2 Care should be exercised when nominating the expected use or rental term for the replacement vehicle, i.e. the term selected for the new lease should reflect the time period in which the vehicle is expected to travel the intended kms. For further information, please refer to StateFleet’s Services Directory or contact your Agency Fleet Manager.

For Daimler Financial Services, community relations and spon- soring are fixed components of its global identity. Therefore, we are creating, taking on, and promoting charitable initiatives around the world that help people help themselves. We do not do this only by spending money. Companies and employees directly lend a hand worldwide when the issue is to promote the economic and entrepreneurial development of socially underprivileged people and produce long-lasting positive results in society. As it stands to reason, one focus of this initiative is the financial aspect. In many places around the world and in focal points of our society, Daimler Financial Services provides services, such as microfinancing for company initiatives, promotes educational projects, such as Street UniverCity Berlin, in which socially disadvantaged youth are taught about how to deal with money, and supports the mobility of charitable institutions with Daimler vehicles.
To date, there have been no bankruptcy fi lings of fl eet management companies with securitization transac- tions rated by DBRS. However, given the DBRS approach of rating through the economic cycle, structures proposed by the sponsors need to be reviewed considering a bankruptcy of the Sponsor. Noteholders are generally intended to be protected through the use of bankruptcy-remote structures designed by the Sponsor and underwriters, which, based on opinions provided by seller’s counsel, represent a true sale, thus shielding the assets from claims by the bankrupt entity’s creditors. Additional protections could include triggers and provisions that provide for the appointment of a replacement servicer (in certain transactions) to manage the fl eet and facilitate repayment of all obligations. In some transactions, note- holders are afforded some input regarding the approval in the appointment of a replacement servicer (if applicable) subsequent to an event of default.

We have subsequently been informed that the average cost of a fleet car in 2010 was £5,257 compared to the current £4,750 in 2013/14 and Travel Allowance of £4,440 or £5,160. It is questionable how much of a comparison the WAO was able to perform in assessing whether the arrangements offered VfM but is also acknowledged that prices were compared on OGC to provide assurance that the rates were competitive. The WAO Financial Management Handbook (June 2013) states that where insufficient verbal or written quotations are received, a single tender process may be followed. Although this was not in place at the time of the tender this is recognised best practice and consideration should have been given to obtaining further approval from the Executive Committee. We have been advised that the Executive Committee were fully briefed on the situation and this was evidenced by minutes.
The fleetmanagement markets in Eastern Europe and the CIS are expected to converge with the developments in Western Europe. Eastern Europe is already tracing the most developed European markets closely in terms of FM system functionality and service models. The major Russian providers are instead still primarily serving large corporations with standalone systems, whereas subscription services up to this point mainly have been adopted by SMBs. Cloud services based on recurring service fees have however in recent years started to become a greater focus also for major Russian enterprise fleets and their domestic FM solution providers. Another key trend on the European market is factory-fitment of OEM truck telematics. The local Russian truck manufacturers have however not yet fully embraced this development and the OEM telematics activities remain comparably limited. Ultimately, the OEMs in the CIS are also expected to gradually introduce proprietary telematics systems including vehicle tracking, remote diagnostics and other fleetmanagement functionality. Legal mandates and the increasing competition from Western European commercial vehicle OEMs will propel this development.

Senior management must define and communicate their organisation’s fleet safety objectives by promoting both the Motor Fleet Risk Management Policy and their Fleet Safety Policy Statement. The fleet safety policy statement should be accessible to all staff. The statement should be displayed throughout all departments and given to drivers. It should become the focal point for the new and ongoing approach to lower the motor vehicle collision rate.
Table 5 shows the model input parameters as determined from the existing fleet data, and the economic life results based on economic analysis of the current fleet. The input parameters include data coming directly from SAP, such as Functional Code and Description, and parameters provided by the user, such as Class, Units of Use, Interest Rate, Inflation Rate, and Forward Analysis Annual Usage. The remaining parameters are calculated based on the SAP data. For equipment that does not have usage measured with an odometer or hour meter, usage is analyzed based on one year of service. Therefore, Average Annual Usage, Initial Usage, and Annual Usage Decline are not calculated for this equipment. The column titled Current Fleet represents the economic life in years, the age at economic life (hours or miles), and the rate for equipment retained up to economic life ($/hr, $/mile, or $/year) based on the 2011 data and the current fleet size and usage. Appendix E contains a more detailed summary of each class code. The Years Modeled column of Table 5 shows the number of years for which the economic model was calculated and is the minimum of 30 years or the year prior to usage going negative based on decline in usage over the number of years. The tag No Min within the Current Economic Life column indicates that an economic life was not found within the Years Modeled time period. An economic life will never be determined when the Annual Operating Factor (increase in cost per mile or hour) is negative, indicating that operating costs are decreasing year over year. A negative Annual Operating Factor results in the longer the machine is owned, the less costly it becomes, and therefore, no minimum cost is achieved. An economic life is often not found when the Annual Operating Factor is positive, but very small, such as for class code 0202 (all) where the factor was determined to be 0.0096.

Assurance Services and Information Integrity: CPAs provide services that improve and assure the quality of information used in making business decisions. The CPA’s assurance has traditionally been applied to financial statements in the form of an audit. An audit is the process of verifying the accuracy and legitimacy of the accounting practices used by a company. The purpose is to determine whether the company’s finan- cial statements, which include the Income Statement, Balance Sheet, Statement of Stockholder’s Equity, and Statement of Cash Flows, have been prepared and stated in accordance with specified accounting criteria. CPAs refer to this “specified accounting criteria” as GAAP, or Generally Accepted Accounting Principles. The Securities and Exchange Commission requires public companies — ones that sell their stock in public financial markets such as the New York Stock Exchange — to undergo an annual audit of their financial statements by an independent CPA.
Trip report is a powerful tool for analyzing vessel movement through time. Trip report is closely connected with route drawing but instead of graphical representation of the travel it condenses information into tabular form. Trip report shows locations where the vessel has stopped, how long each stop has lasted, duration of travel, distances and average speeds between stops and other information.
