NSF consolidates fleet in Pendragon Contracts deal
The organisation, which is widely known for its services throughout the international food supply chain, has signed up to one central solution offered by Pendragon Contracts for its 82-vehicle fleet.
Pendragon Contracts is working with NSF to rewrite its fleet policy by reviewing the car bandings to provide a more attractive and appropriate choice of vehicle for drivers depending on their market territory. The fleet management company will deliver ongoing support to the drivers and their vehicles, supplying replacement cars as the requirement arises.
John Given, sales and marketing director at Pendragon Contracts, explained: ‘By reviewing NSF’s fleet policy we will introduce vehicles that are fit for purpose. For example, small prestige brands that are easy to park and are exempt from the congestion charge are more suitable for drivers in London rather than the other vehicles their drivers have previously been driving.’
As part of the tender, Pendragon Contracts also reviewed NSF’s fuel expenditure and demonstrated that by switching to its Shell fuel card scheme the company can deliver savings against normal pump prices thanks to the negotiated rates it enjoys with the fuel company. In addition, by accessing Pendragon Contracts’ web-based management information resource NSF will reduce the time and cost burden of the whole fleet administration process.
Lesley Chipper, finance director EMEA, NSF, said: ‘We’re confident that by channelling our fleet requirements into one fleet management and contract hire specialist, the company will benefit from its expertise and buying power, enabling us to make savings and introduce a more attractive choice of vehicles to our drivers within their bandings. We’re excited by Pendragon Contracts’ drive and enthusiasm.’
