Customs cars outsourced

HM Revenue & Customs has outsourced the fleet management of 2,000 vehicles in a bid to improve business and driver efficiencies.

The move has given Inchcape Fleet Solutions one of its largest contract wins and includes other Government department vehicles managed by HM Revenue & Customs.

The fleet is almost equally split between pool cars located at offices across the UK and job-need cars assigned to staff.

Both pool and job-need cars, largely supermini and lower medium sector models, are leased on contract hire and typically clock up 10,000-25,000 miles or 20,000-30,000 miles a year respectively.

Dave Clarke, HM Revenue & Customs’ head of transport and travel said: ‘The award of this contract to Inchcape Fleet Solutions builds on the work that the department has already undertaken in providing a successful fleet of cars for a progressive, forward looking business such as HMRC and we are confident that in the future, this will achieve best value for money for the department.’
