Fleet Assist wins new contracts

Published:  18 October, 2017

Fleet supply chain management specialist Fleet Assist has won significant new contracts in the vehicle leasing and rental sector.

The Cambridgeshire-based organisation has business partnerships with 75 contract hire, leasing and daily rental company customers.

Go Plant Essential Fleet Services, which provides contract hire, maintenance and daily rental of light, heavy and specialist commercial vehicles, is the latest new contract to be won by Fleet Assist.

The Lincoln-based firm has signed a three-year contract to use Fleet Assist’s network of 5,000 garages for service, maintenance and repair (SMR) work. It will also offer a vehicle service booking facility to its customers, so directing work towards the Fleet Assist network.

Go Plant Essential, which has 35 depots and service centres across the UK, operates around 3,500 vehicles, of which 2,250 are vans covered by the agreement with Fleet Assist.

Mark Smith, head of operational services at Go Plant Essential, said: ‘Joining Fleet Assist allows our LCV customers access to a much wider network of appropriate repairers in locations which minimise their downtime.’

Meanwhile, Days Fleet will continue to use the Fleet Assist network to undertake SMR work on vehicles supplied to customers across the UK and its vehicle service booking facility.

Fleet Assist has also expanded its relationship with long-time customer Days Fleet. The South Wales based contract hire and leasing company, which operates a fleet of almost 10,000 vehicles, has signed a three-year extension to take the relationship through to late 2020.

Aled Williams, director of Days Fleet, said: ‘Through our partnership with Fleet Assist, we can maximise the quality of repairs to our vehicle fleet across the UK and achieve one of the lowest response times to our repairers ensuring that our vehicles are off the road for the minimum amount of time, which is critical for our clients.’
