Concentration of Value

The accumulation of significant concentrated asset values in a fleet indicates the potential for a severe single event loss, such as a depot fire, or major collision. The concentration of vehicles may be static (e.g. in depots, workshops) or dynamic (e.g. a multi-trailer combination transporting valuable cargo).

Negative Positive
Congested single parking area for vehicles parked at depots / workshops. Multiple clusters of vehicles parked in a spacious, secured depot / workshop.
Minimal spacing (1-2m) between vehicles parked at depots / workshops that will enable prompt fire spread from vehicle to vehicle. Good spacing (3m+) between vehicles parked at depots / workshops that will delay fire spread from vehicle to vehicle.
Multi-trailer combinations with valuable cargo. Simple, standard value, dynamic vehicle combinations.
Vehicles with specialised fittings, exterior finishes, upgrades, etc. Minimal specialised fittings, exterior finishes, upgrades, etc.

  • Try to provide at least 3m spacing between each vehicle parked at depots / workshops.
  • Try to park vehicles in multiple clusters (rather one large single group) with 15m+ spacing between each cluster.
  • All vehicles parked indoors, should be located in buildings that are fitted with remote monitored sprinkler / fire detection systems.
