Interactive Fleet Management drafted in to help manage ICM's 200-strong fleet
ICM, which contract hires its vehicles under a non-maintenance agreement, chose Kettering-based Interactive Fleet Management after it was impressed with its approach to providing multi-supply contract hire on a competitive tendering basis.
By adopting this model, ICM enjoys the price benefits of dealing with a panel of contract hire providers, whilst benefiting from the ease of operation of a single point of contact at Interactive Fleet Management.
James Brodie, Fleet manager of ICM, said: ‘We get the best of both worlds using this approach. Interactive Fleet Management provides us and our drivers with all the advantages of sole supply, whilst our cost base is reduced by achieving the best contract hire rate each time we place an order. This offers us significant savings as there are some sizeable price differences in monthly rental in the current market.’
As part of the contract, Interactive Fleet Management is also managing the maintenance on a pay on use basis, as well as taking away the administrative burden of all fleet administration, including fuel card management, the issuing of driver packs, any parking or speeding fines plus liaising with all divisional managers to ensure drivers are selecting cars that fit within their choice criteria.
Jayne Pett, Operations director at Interactive Fleet Management, said: ‘We’re delighted to have been appointed by ICM, and we look forward to providing them with significant savings by reducing their contract hire costs and applying strict fleet management control to all areas of their vehicle operation.’For more of the latest industry news, click here.
