The “Business Critical” service provides a bespoke end–to-end fleet management solution that covers vehicle funding, design, build and procurement, through to complete in-life management and incident support. The service is designed to minimise downtime and keep business critical fleets on the road, including “blue light: fleets, those that provide essential services and those that carry time-sensitive goods or where the business will incur punitive penalties if the vehicles are off the road.
The new service follows Balfour Beatty’s recently partnership with Lex Autolease to manage its 2,500-strong speciality LCV fleet, testament to its capabilities in managing operationally critical vehicles.
Tim Porter, managing director of Lex Autolease, said: ‘Demand for a dedicated business critical offering has been growing in recent years. We anticipate that more companies with business critical fleets will recognise the cost- and time-saving benefits that can be achieved by working in partnership with a supplier that understands and can manage their essential fleet requirements beyond the supply of the vehicle.
‘This proposition gives businesses the confidence to fully outsource their fleet requirements, reassured that their vehicles are in safe hands whilst they concentrate on delivering their core business activity.’
