In-house fleet team launches outside service

DUN & Bradstreet's in-house fleet team is to sell its services to other companies on a contract fleet management basis. The company, which specialises in business information systems, has its own fleet team handling around 1,100 vehicles.

Dun & Bradstreet is offering the service in partnership with Fleet Support Group, which handles the company's maintenance management and accident management requirements. Dun & Bradstreet UK corporate fleet manager Gary Kent said the decision came as a result of the company 'de-merging' last year and splitting into three independent companies. Most centralised functions, such as payroll and pensions, were disbanded but the central fleet operation remained.

The company is targeting fleets of between 100 and 250 vehicles which may not have a dedicated fleet management team and could benefit from the expertise offered by the Dun & Bradstreet team. Among the services offered will be policy advice, sourcing, manufacturer liaison and negotiation, funding, administration and disposal.
