Broadband provider moves from cash allowances to fully leased van fleet

Ultrafast full-fibre broadband provider Gigaclear has invested in a bespoke, branded van fleet from Fleet Operations to keep drivers safe and compliant on the roads.

As the company rapidly expanded, Gigaclear recognised the need for a fleet of customised, fit-for-purpose vans and turned to Fleet Operations

The business, which runs a 140-strong fleet, previously offered drivers a cash allowance to its engineers, who provide vital network support. But as the company rapidly expanded, Gigaclear recognised the need for a fleet of customised, fit-for-purpose vans and turned to Fleet Operations.

Fleet Operations focused first on the task of providing a fleet of more than 90 new ‘fit-for-purpose’ vans, overseeing van choice, livery, racking, manufacturer support and pricing.

As well as creating a fleet policy for Gigaclear’s drivers, Fleet Operations has taken over full day-to-day responsibility for fleet management, providing services such as purchasing, hire, PAYG maintenance, fuel management, risk management, reporting, systems support, and administration support.

Nathan Rundle, Gigaclear delivery director, said: “As we continue to grow and professionalise the business, it is important that our teams have the resource to continually drive up the quality of our network.

“By investing in a new fleet of vans, we are ensuring that our workforce is properly equipped to work safely and compliantly in challenging environments.

“The new fleet is fuel efficient and fit for the specific needs of the business. It also provides us with a great opportunity to raise awareness among residents and customers that Gigaclear is working hard in the community to provide a crucial service to those that have been historically underserved.”
