The production chain for the treatment of vehicles at the end of life is very important to any country, both economically and environmentally. The decision to end the life of vehicles must be taken at the right time in order to get the smallest economic and environmental negative effects to the vehicles operation. This paper proposes that this assessment, in the case of transport fleets, starts from the identification of vehicles which operation is irrational. This identification can be
... tion can be obtained comparing the vehicles readiness with the minimum permissible readiness. For this, the boundary condition of fleet rational use is defined and integrated with the equation for calculating the indicator Readiness. This allows obtaining a function whose parameters depend on the specific technical and economic characteristics where transportation activity occurs so the reference value for the comparison is determined. It also shows the application to a real case that allowed to identify vehicles whose operation is irrational and then to evaluate whether to pass to the supply chain for end of life vehicles.
