Dial will provide fleet management services for the company's existing vehicles on non-maintenance contracts. Corporate Express is also taking on Dial Link management reporting software and is now discussing a further range of initiatives, such as accident management and fuel cards. Dial has also announced an agreement with building merchant Graham Group. This sees Dial appointed to finance and manage 300 vehicles, with Hertz Leasing continuing to handle the remaining 300.
Dial's section of the fleet was previously outright purchased by Graham Group, but will now be financed using a combination of contract purchase for high value vehicles and contract hire with maintenance and breakdown recovery for other models. Under the agreement 120 vehicles were immediately ordered, with Dial disposing of the old vehicles.
