Dial helps company overcome rapid expansion nightmare

A FLEET management nightmare has been overcome by a company which found its fleet had grown from 50 vehicles to more than 1,000.

First a huge shake-up within Birmingham-based Wesleyan saw its fleet of vehicles increase from 50 to 700 within the space of six months. Then, when Wesleyan acquired two other companies, pushing the fleet up to 1,000 and still growing, it turned to Dial, a vehicle finance and management company, to take charge of the fleet. As part of the deal a Dial administrator is working on a day-to-day basis with the personnel department to manage the vehicles.

Steve Cox, commercial director of Dial, said: 'Outsourcing the fleet management responsibilities to Dial has freed executive time for Wesleyan and, as we can more closely monitor and tailor management systems, we can ensure that we offer the most cost-effective service at all times. The vehicles we provide for Wesleyan are all through a contract purchase agreement, with full maintenance and recovery.'
