LeasePlan International wins Kodak supplier award

Kodak has named LeasePlan International as its Supplier of the Year for successfully implementing processes to streamline its fleet policy.

The award, which covers LeasePlan International’s work in Kodak’s Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region, follows a major programme of productivity improvements and cost reductions for the 2,100 Kodak company cars managed by LeasePlan across 20 European countries.

Matt Dyer, managing director of LeasePlan International, said: ‘Previously, Kodak worked with a wide range of vehicle manufacturers in every country. Working together, we were able to reduce to only two main suppliers for Kodak’s entire business car fleet.

‘That enabled Kodak to negotiate better discounts for vehicle acquisition and achieve significant cost savings across the fleet.’

Stephanie Smart, Kodak’s European purchasing director and vice-president, said: ‘Four of our suppliers were nominated for this award. Our fleet is both a major cost and a strategic necessity for our business, so streamlining our vehicle policy has paid considerable dividends.’
