Morgan Sindall Group signs up for complete fleet solution from Northgate
The deal, which will help reduce the outlay of capital on the group’s 1,000+ fleet of commercial vehicles, includes over 550 rental vehicles in addition to fleet management services such as a pay-as-you-go service, maintenance and repair, a direct driver line, breakdown and recovery and vehicle monitoring services for the remaining funded light commercial fleet.
A key factor in the partnership was Northgate’s ability to provide Morgan Sindall Group with transparency across its fleet of commercial vehicles, which in turn reduces costs for the company.
In addition, Northgate’s fleet management software, Fleet Dynamix, enables the group to view and manage its owned, leased and rented commercial vehicles in real time, and provides comprehensive management information across the entire light commercial fleet.
Commenting on the deal, Jonathan Hall, director of plant at Morgan Sindall, commented: ‘The complete fleet solutions package that Northgate has constructed for Morgan Sindall Group provides us with the ability to choose the correct acquisition method for our light commercial fleet, dependent upon each of our individual contract commitments. The flexibility of utilising rental vehicles or funding vehicles over a longer period, allied with the comprehensive fleet management expertise available from our partnership with Northgate, will undoubtedly allow us to shape future fleet policy and result in an overall reduction in fleet running costs.’
