RAC outsources its 1,900 vehicle fleet to LVL

THE RAC has outsourced its 1,900-vehicle fleet to Lex Vehicle Leasing, which has led to a shake-up in the breakdown company's fleet department. The move follows the purchase of RAC Holdings by LVL's parent company Lex Service last year.

All new RAC vehicles are to be provided and managed by LVL, while from June management of the existing fleet will be transferred, covering 600 cars and 1,300 vans. RAC drivers will have access to LVL's Lex One-Call service providing a one-stop shop for all service and repairs and a new streamlined quotation and ordering process has been developed with the RAC for its company car drivers.

Two members of the fleet department will be kept on to manage the relationship between the RAC and LVL, while a 'handful' of other staff will be absorbed into roles within other areas of the breakdown organisation. Jon Walden, managing director of LVL, said: 'This is the beginning of a relationship that I am sure will be very beneficial to both companies. 'A huge amount of work has gone into winning this account and once again the dedication and commitment of people in both companies has led to this very successful outcome.'
