Tetley brews up a deal with CLM

TEA giant Tetley Group is aiming for savings of £70,000 over the next four years following a three-year fleet review.

The company has awarded the management contract for its 71-strong fleet to CLM.

It means the fleet management company is now responsible for vehicle acquisition, using a competitive tendering approach, in addition to providing accident management, insurance administration and maintenance cost management on a pay-on-use basis.

Tetley buying manager Madeleine Ross said the group was hoping for the £70,000 savings on acquisition costs alone.

She said: ‘Our primary objective in reviewing our fleet operation was to maintain the quality of the vehicles and the benefits to the drivers while cutting acquisition, operating and administration costs, and we believe that by appointing CLM we will be able to achieve that.

‘CLM should be able to save us in the region of 7% to 10% of our fleet rental costs using a competitive tendering approach.’
