The move follows a review and rationalisation of leasing suppliers by Raychem, a Swindon-based components manufacturer, as part of a general cost appraisal programme. Barbour Index, which is a specialist information provider for the construction and health and safety industries, has handed over its fleet management to Fleetlease. The company had previously handled its fleet in-house.
Barbour Index financial director Scott Cooper said: 'We have always outright purchased our fleet but have since appointed Fleetlease to provide our fleet management services. This gives us more control and means that Fleetlease can take away all the daily administrative tasks. Fleetlease has managed to come up with a total fleet management package which will ensure our fleet is streamlined and run more cost effectively.'
