Coordinating your need for vehicles with the manufacturer’s production schedules

To ensure that you will be able to receive the vehicles you need, for the season when you need them, it is best to coordinate your orders with the manufacturers’ production schedules. Each year, the major manufacturers publish their build-out schedules for each model.

To help you plan the timing of your orders, we have provided links to the manufacturers’ build-out and ordering deadlines.

Factory Ordering for Savings

Should you buy your fleet from a dealership or order from the factory? This paper shows how to plan your factory ordering for maximum savings.

Ordering company vehicles from the factory (through a fleet provider) offer better pricing and other advantages, but it requires advance planning and limits your flexibility. This paper explains the many factors that should be considered when purchasing your fleet.
