Fleetlease plans big fleet expansion

FLEETLEASE has revealed ambitious plans to treble the size of its fleet in the next five years as the company celebrates its 10th anniversary. The Newbury-based company operates 9,500 vehicles on contract hire and fleet management and over the next five years it expects the fleet size to reach 32,000 units.

Managing director Rob Whalley says most of that expansion will be organic, although he has not ruled out acquiring rival companies. The company has also moved into the public sector and specialises in providing private driver schemes - effectively personal leasing - to company and particularly local authority employees.

Shortly Whalley expects to announce the two largest signings in Fleetlease's history - 1,400 units with a corporate company which will encompass vehicles on contract hire, full outsourcing, fleet management, accident management and the utilisation of software provision through the company's software division, GAMMA, and 2,000 vehicles with a county council which has decided to outsource the entire fleet operation.
