Internet services make ALD choice of Total

OIL company Total UK has chosen its new fleet supplier on the basis of the online services it can offer.

The whole of the Total group has signed a new contract hire deal, which will see 1,200 petrol and diesel vehicles supplied on a four-year, 75,000-mile replacement cycle, with ALD Automotive. The oil group’s human resources and strategic purchasing departments conducted a joint review of its fleet requirements and ALD Automotive’s internet-based services were crucial in it winning the contract.

Julian Power, HR sourcing manager, Total UK said: ‘The introduction of online fleet solutions will significantly improve our business efficiency and allow our drivers and fleet decision-makers instant access to information.’

The fleet consists of cars for sales and some technical staff, plus vehicles for area and regional managers. They have a choice of Toyota, Renault, Nissan and PSA Group vehicles. Employees also choose cars on a personal contract purchase basis within the restricted badge agreement.
