ECONOMIC FEASIBILITY OF INDEPENDENT VANPOOL OPERATIONS

This study analyzes the vanpool market and demonstrates that, for operations with 30 or more vans, returns on invested capital can be high. This is due to high leverage provided by borrowing or leasing vans and the little downside risk to investment capital because vans maintain a high resale value. Therefore, this study concludes, the opportunity is great for more investment capital supplied by third party, independent vanpool operations to compete for a share of the market currently dominated by company-sponsored vanpools.
