Randstad restricts car choice

ONE of the Netherlands' largest fleets will save huge sums by restricting its company car choice list from this spring. Randstad runs 4,500 cars and has an annual budget of 70 million guilders (€32 million).

It includes 29 different car brands in its fleet, although fleet controller Vic Vooys said that 4,000 of the total are made up of just 10 brands. From the spring of this year, Randstad has started to promote just six brands: Opel, Renault, Fiat, Peugeot, Ford and Volkswagen. According to Vooys, this will achieve a purchasing benefit of 6%.

Drivers can still choose other marques, but the extra cost is passed on to the individual which means, in practice, that these drivers are obliged to choose a car with a lower list price. (April 2000)
