Booker outsources staff mileage charging

Wholesale food retailer Booker, has outsourced the administration process involved in charging employees for driving personal miles in a company car, to fleet management company The Miles Consultancy.

Drivers now use an online fuel reporting system to log their personal miles each month, while The Miles Consultancy tracks where and when staff refuel via a live feed from company fuel cards.

The fleet management provider then reports personal mileage figures each month to Booker, which deducts the relevant amount from the driver’s salary.

Previously, drivers were required to fill in a spreadsheet, highlighting business and personal miles. These were then sent to an in-house administration team where personal mileage claims were calculated.

Steve Peace, employee relations manager at Booker, said drivers can now log their miles both at work or at home. “There are [real] admin cost savings for us.”
