Capital Bank ousts Ryland Multifleet in partnership contract

RYLAND Multifleet has lost its partnership deal with the British Chambers of Commerce for the provision of the vehicle management operation, Chamber Fleet, which it helped to establish. The company has been ousted by Capital Bank Vehicle Management, which now has in excess of 48,000 vehicles consisting mainly of fleets of between one and 25. It will now work to promote Chamber Fleet.

Ryland struck a three-year deal with the BCC in October 1995 to provide contract hire to its 107,000 member businesses and at that time it was the largest deal of its kind. Two years later, Ryland and the BCC launched Chamber Fleet which gave the fleet operation a higher profile and the Chamber began working with a number of blue chip companies, including British Telecom and BUPA.

Commenting on the new partnership, Kathy Riley, BCC commercial director, said: 'The vast majority of members require smaller fleet solutions and we feel that Capital Bank's experience in this sector, which is second to none, will make a real difference to our members.'
