EuroFleet wins 30,000-vehicle contract

EUROFLEET has secured a three-year contract to move 30,000 end-of-contract cars a year on behalf of GE Capital Fleet Services (GECFS) and sister commercial vehicle rental firm TLS.

About 17,000 vehicles from GECFS and 13,000 from TLS will be moved throughout the UK for onward remarketing under the deal. One of the sites involved will be EuroFleet's dedicated van and truck refurbishing centre in Corby, Northamptonshire.

At the heart of the process is a condition inspection of each vehicle using Autograph, a hand-held terminal loaded with EuroFleet's own estimation software. This generates a price for damage repair based on British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association fair wear and tear guidelines.

Real-time inspection data is transmitted via GSM to the EuroFleet central computer system within seconds of a completed inspection, offering clients access to online inspection results that will help efficient remarketing of vehicles.

Daniel Moss, GECFS logistics and refurbishment manager, said: 'This technology allows GECFS to be more efficient in processing end-of-contract damage queries and ensures that BVRLA standards of fair wear and tear are adhered to at all times.'

EuroFleet provides a full-lifetime logistics service for fleet operators, motor manufacturers and daily rental companies. It operates from six sites in the UK and moves 450,000 vehicles a year.
