A fleet management deal has also been awarded to the contract hire company. The management of the fleet had already been outsourced, but BOC Group is not naming the company which has lost the contract. The BOC Group fleet, based mainly in Guildford and Rotherham, is split between business need, benefit and executive cars.
The business need car fleet will be split between Ford Focus and Ford Mondeo 1.8-litre diesels and run on a one-year, 30,000-mile contract, as will benefit cars which drivers can choose from a list of Ford, Rover or Vauxhall models. Executive models will run on three-year replacement cycles and come from a choice list of Audi, BMW, Land Rover and Mercedes.
