ATS EUROMASTER has seen a 216% uplift for Class 7 (3-3.5t) MOTs compared with 2020 as fleet managers adapt to longer commercial vehicle lifecycles.
With the squeeze on new commercial vehicle availability combined with the shortage of semiconductors since 2020, fleet managers have been adapting fleet lifecycles by making their vans work longer before replacement.
The Association of Fleet Professionals reported that its members were seeing extensions that ranged five to eight years before replacement.
As a result, fleet managers are needing to adapt their management of service, maintenance and repair spend and manage MOT requirements.
