Revolutionising Corporate Travel with Hiyacar for a greener future.

Revolutionising Corporate Travel with Hiyacar for a greener future.

In today’s fast-paced corporate world, transportation plays a key role in ensuring teams can meet with clients and one another regularly. One of the traditional approaches is grey fleets where privately-owned vehicles are used for business purposes. This is gradually losing its appeal due to sustainability concerns, operational inefficiencies, and rising costs. Many companies are also remotely based which makes this option less feasible.

As businesses seek greener, more innovative alternatives, pool car technology and corporate car sharing, especially through platforms like Hiyacar, are emerging as powerful solutions that promise a host of benefits.

This article delves into the advantages of transitioning from grey fleets to pool car technology and embracing Hiyacar for corporate car sharing.

What are Grey Fleets?

Grey fleets are employees’ private vehicles used for business purposes. This setup has long been a staple in corporate transportation. However, this approach comes with several drawbacks:

The Downsides of Grey Fleets

Environmental Impact:

Grey fleets contribute to increased carbon emissions due to a diverse range of vehicle types, ages, and fuel efficiencies. This directly conflicts with corporate sustainability goals and environmental responsibilities.

Financial Strain:

Employers often cover fuel, maintenance, insurance, and other costs associated with grey fleets. The lack of control over maintenance schedules can lead to unexpected expenses, impacting the bottom line.

Inefficient Resource Allocation:

Managing a grey fleet is complex, involving administrative tasks like scheduling, maintenance tracking, and addressing insurance issues. This diverts valuable time and resources away from core business activities.

The Rise of Pool Car Technology and Corporate Car Sharing

As businesses aim for greater efficiency, cost savings, and reduced carbon footprints, pool car technology and corporate car sharing are gaining prominence:


Pool car technology enables businesses to maintain a dedicated fleet of vehicles that can be shared among employees. Costs are shared, leading to reduced financial strain on both the company and its staff.


By opting for a shared fleet with standardised, fuel-efficient vehicles, companies can substantially lower their carbon emissions. This aligns with environmental sustainability targets and enhances the brand commitment to climate change.

Streamlined Management:

Pool car technology streamlines vehicle allocation, reservation, and maintenance processes through user-friendly platforms. This eliminates the administrative burden associated with grey fleets.

Data-Driven Insights:

Many pool car systems offer data analytics, providing insights into vehicle utilisation, maintenance needs, and cost allocation. This data-driven approach empowers companies to make informed decisions for further optimization.
