Parsons Peebles is set to save tens of thousands of pounds a year after appointing Fleet Operations to manage its 195-strong van and car fleet.
The electromechanical specialist is looking to introduce greater consistency, efficiency and governance across all areas of its fleet, following a series of recent company acquisitions.
Fleet Operations will oversee the management of leased van and car contracts, the introduction of new company car and green fleet policies, a ‘pay as you go’ maintenance contract, a new fuel card scheme and a standardised telematics system.
“The high levels of expertise and service delivered by Fleet Operations’ consultants made them an obvious partner of choice for both our business and our drivers as we strive to improve cost, process and environmental efficiencies,” said Ashleigh Greenan, Parsons Peebles’ Chief Financial Officer.
“We are confident that by streamlining and optimising our fleet operations this deal will serve to make us even more competitive while further boosting our customer service standards.”
Jayne Pett, Sales and Marketing Director, Fleet Operations, added: “We are delighted Parsons Peebles has entrusted us to take full responsibility for the day-to-day management of its fleet and to deliver real added value by implementing our tailored and far-reaching strategic recommendations.”
