Avis Budget Group’s first-ever commercial vehicle supersite opens

Avis Budget Group has launched its inaugural commercial vehicle supersite, sited in Castleford, Yorkshire and providing a centre of excellence for the firm’s commercial rental operations.

The new hub will be a centre of excellence for Avis and Budget UK commercial rental operations

The new hub will bring increased capacity and capabilities, expanding the company’s commercial fleet network and helping to build a wider range of specialised vehicles including double and single-cab tippers, Luton vans, box vans, drop sides and crew cabs.

Onsite resources include the ability to store and manage over 100 vans on-site, and Avis Budget Group is introducing electric charging points to demonstrate its commitment to the future of commercial vehicle rental.

Customers who book through Budget UK are also able to pick up their commercial vehicle directly from the new location in Castleford while Avis UK customers can benefit from a delivery and collection service for commercial vehicles.

Commenting on the new hub, James Turner, fleet and supply chain director – UK, Norway, Sweden and Denmark, Avis Budget Group, said: “The opening of our new Castleford hub will enable us to expand our national fleet network, while still providing a localised, personal service to our customers. With a dedicated team of commercial vehicle specialists, we can ensure that the needs of our customers are met quickly and efficiently.”
