Fleet Alliance seals Gala deal

Betting and gaming conglomerate Gala Coral Group has outsourced the management of its 300-strong company car fleet and 180 grey fleet cars to Fleet Alliance with the intention of making considerable efficiency savings over the next three years.

Gala Coral Group operates 1,600 licensed betting shops, 27 casinos and 145 bingo clubs in the UK, with a further 400 betting shops in Italy.

It has appointed Fleet Alliance to replace its incumbent leasing supplier, following an extensive selection process that involved a final shortlist of four leading fleet management and leasing companies.

Dr. Colin Morgan, Head of Corporate Responsibility at Gala Coral Group, said: “The appointment of Fleet Alliance will ensure that we can continue our work on reducing the environmental impact of our company car fleet.

“By capping the C02 emissions at 160g/km for our company car drivers and measuring mileage accurately, we will be in an even stronger position to make positive progress on our environmental stewardship strategy which is increasingly at the heart of how we do business in the company.”

Currently, Gala Coral operates a two-badge car fleet with Ford and Toyota models, but from May this will switch to models from the Volkswagen Audi Group for the majority of its company car drivers, with Mercedes and BMW models also being available for senior managers.

Directors will continue to have a free choice of vehicle.
