Energy services company Cape Plc is to see significant savings after switching to the majority of its van fleet from daily rental to contract hire.
Under a new three-year deal with ALD Automotive, the firm is moving approximately 75% of its 400-strong LCV fleet to a contract hire solution, whilst at the same time renewing ALD’s position as sole supplier for the company’s 200 company cars.
In partnership with Cape, ALD conducted a comprehensive review of the fleet policy on LCVs with the change to contract hire expected to cut costs by around 30%.
However, Matthew Hammond, UK fleet & transport manager for Cape, said the business is also benefiting from enhanced service and support, adding: “Since the beginning I have felt ALD fully understood my aim. They provided the support, advice and suggestions to help us successfully achieve the results required – it was refreshing to feel everyone concerned felt involved and working together.”
The deal will also see ALD provide its ProFleet telematics solution for Cape’s company cars as well as a Personal Contract Hire (PCH) offering to support Cape’s 85-100 cash takers.
