National Car Rental wins £1m BSkyB Combo van contract
10/07/1998 in NEWS
BSkyB has a leased fleet of 750 vans, but needs the flexibility of the rental deal to cope with demand fluctuations as its new television system becomes available. The contract was negotiated by Harper Collins Publishing, which has the same parent company as BSkyB, News Corporation, and deals with both the firms' fleet needs.
The vans will be supplied liveried with NCR and BSkyB logos, but they can be removed in case BSkyB wishes to return a van. The vehicles are expected to be in use by the start of August and NCR will supply some of them from its fleet, although the bulk of the order will be new purchases.
