Nationwide Platforms signs LCV mobility contract with Alphabet

The sole supply agreement, which includes vehicle livery and mobility management, will see 146 LCVs delivered throughout 2014 to Nationwide Platforms, a market leader in access platform hire, equipment sales and working at height courses.

Awarded following a rigorous 11-month tender process, the new contract will help to save more than £32,000 from fleet hire costs every year due to the move to contract hire and will also significantly lower current mpg figures and increase fuel efficiency by 35%.

Working closely with the fleet procurement team, Alphabet has designed a completely bespoke mobility solution. Delivered in partnership with Qi Van Systems, each vehicle has been fully liveried and fitted with the latest equipment to meet the specific engineering support requirements.

Jeremy Fish, UK managing director at Nationwide Platforms, said:  ‘We made the decision to work with Alphabet due to the organisation’s extensive experience in the sector and customised service offering. The whole team delivered over and above our expectations, not only providing an outstanding fleet solution, but also keeping costs to a minimum.

‘As well as bringing our service vehicles up to date, the new agreement has been specifically developed to streamline our business mobility and lower fleet running costs. Each vehicle has been fully liveried and fitted with the latest equipment to meet precise engineering support requirements, while also reducing total mpg figures and lowering our fleet expenditure.

‘From analysis and planning to development and implementation, we’ve been delighted with the whole service from Alphabet. The team was attentive to our precise requirements, working as our corporate mobility partner to create a personalised fleet management solution.’
