A division of PPG has appointed CLM to manage its 220 car fleet.
PPG Architectural Coatings has switched from a solus supply with a major leasing company to a basket of five lessors who will be managed by CLM, who will also provide outsourced accident and maintenance management.
Under new competitive tendering arrangements, the most attractive price per vehicle will be selected by CLM from quotations provided by each leasing supplier to optimise acquisition costs.
As a result, the company expects to see savings in the region of 8%.
At the same time, the fleet allocation lists will move from the current dual badge deal with Ford and Volkswagen Audi Group to a free choice of car, determined by monthly rental allowance.
PPG has retained its internal fleet function to concentrate on risk management.
