Inchcape Fleet Solutions signs fleet management outsource deal with Scotia Gas Networks
Following an extremely competitive tender process, SGN, the UK’s second largest gas distribution company, decided that Inchcape Fleet Solutions represented the organisation best suited to provide the totally outsourced fleet management arrangement they required.
The contract will see Inchcape Fleet Solutions provide SGN with a combined fleet of 2,100 cars and light commercial vehicles. With such a large fleet requirement, SGN selected a fleet management provider who could ensure the efficient running of their fleet in order to facilitate the high levels of service delivery that the company is recognised for.
In addition to their fleet, SGN have enlisted Inchcape Fleet Solutions to supply the following ancillary products and services: accident management, motor insurance database management, vehicle management (service, maintenance and repair) and foreign travel arrangements.
From a technological perspective, SGN will also make use of a number of Inchcape Fleet Solutions’ unique online systems: FleetVision, a system designed to facilitate smoother communication between Inchcape Fleet Solutions and its clients, Downtime Management, an award-winning online tool developed to reduce vehicle downtime and a specifically tailored fleet portal, which will allow SGN to keep a tight rein on all fleet activity.
Inchcape Fleet Solutions’ Sales and Marketing director, Richard Middleton, talked about his great satisfaction at the contract win, and commented: 'The Scotia Gas Networks agreement is a fantastic achievement for Inchcape Fleet Solutions, and one for which every member of staff at the company should be proud.
'It not only shows that we practice what we preach, but that we are equally adept at managing large, enterprise level fleets as we are all other sizes and varieties.
'The company is going from strength to strength at the moment and will only continue to do so in the future.
'I am extremely excited to welcome Scotia Gas Networks to the Inchcape Family and look forward to developing a truly exceptional working relationship with them.'
