The contract follows a 12-month tendering process and covers contract hire of the fleet as well as services including daily rental/relief rental, legacy fleet management and duty of care, licence checking and data management.

Paul Murdoch, fleet contract manager at Aviva, said: 'LeasePlan created a tailored range of services which perfectly fits our current fleet requirements. The LeasePlan bid and account team, with its highly professional and approachable attitude, gave us the confidence they would be a pro-active and flexible partner.

'Aviva had, due to its extensive tender process, a very tight implementation time line, which was completed effortlessly by LeasePlan. The implementation has gone extremely well.'

Matt Dyer, commercial director at LeasePlan, said: 'We are delighted to have earned the chance to work with Aviva and are excited about building on the solid foundations that the two companies established during the rigorous tender and implementation process.

'We are confident that this ongoing partnership will enable us to create some market-leading solutions which will continue to exceed the expectations of both Aviva and their drivers.'
