Under the new agreement Fraikin is able to provide for the lease of commercial vehicles 3.5 tonnes and above including vans, trucks, buses, coaches, trailers and specialist municipal vehicles. Fraikin is also able to provide fleet management services – including the management, sourcing and supply of passenger cars, motorcycles and light commercial vehicles up to 3.5 tonnes.
Commenting on the contract, Colin Melvin, sales director at Fraikin, said: “We are extremely proud to have retained our preferred supplier status under the new CCS framework agreement. Fraikin has a proven track record for helping public sector organisations manage their fleets more efficiently, ensuring compliance and saving the taxpayer money. This renewal will allow us to expand our portfolio of government and public sector contracts.”
The CCS was formed in January 2014 following the merger of the Government Procurement Service (GPS) and the procurement management teams at individual government departments. The CCS brings together policy, advice and direct buying to increase savings for customers in both central government and the wider public sector – and ensures greater value from every commercial relationship – while improving the quality of service delivery for common goods and services across the government.
“Fraikin has a long-established reputation for delivering tailored contract hire, fleet management and rental solutions for the private and public sector alike. The award of the CCS agreement highlights our ongoing commitment to providing the best possible service for our clients across all sectors,” concluded Melvin.
The CCS framework agreement is available to more than 1,400 organisations across central government and the wider public sector.
