Case Study: Eddie Bauer

Eddie Bauer saved thousands on vehicle acquisition by outsourcing.



Location: Bellevue, WA
Industry: Specialty Retailer
Total vehicles: 29 vehicles


Eddie Bauer was looking for a strategic partner that could effectively manage the sales force vehicle fleet while providing customer service consistent with the company’s values. Management was spending too much time on maintaining the fleet of non-uniform vehicles.


Enterprise Fleet Management enabled Eddie Bauer to shift focus from managing the fleet to growing the business. A cycling plan was implemented that reduces the expense of holding current vehicles and maximizes the resale values.

"Enterprise’s ongoing management and service delivery around the fleet program has continued to earn our business. We continue to share a common vision of goals that make the partnership productive and one of our easiest to manage. The product and services are great, but the people make the defining difference for our team."

Through Enterprise’s relationships with manufacturers, Eddie Bauer was able to see increased savings on vehicle acquisition. The company also implemented a fuel card program to better track fuel expenses and a Full Maintenance program to budget and control vehicle maintenance expenses.


After implementing a managed vehicle program, Eddie Bauer experienced significant savings. An additional $2,000 per vehicle was saved on purchases, as well as continued savings through the fuel card and maintenance programs.
