Fujitsu Technology Solutions, a subsidiary of leading Japanese information and communications technology company Fujitsu, has outsourced the management of its car fleets in France, Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg to Fleet Logistics.
The first wave of the outsource contract covers around 700 cars, mainly in Belgium, Luxembourg and France, while the second wave will involve a further 300 cars in the Netherlands.
Fujitsu Technology Solutions had clear objectives in outsourcing the management of its car fleets to Fleet Logistics.
The first was to achieve total cost transparency in all its fleet operations along with detailed cost analysis and cost reduction.
It also wanted to see a reduction in acquisition costs through the use of a multi-vendor environment.
At the same time as achieving cost efficiencies across the fleet, the company also wanted to improve driver satisfaction without reducing driver budgets.
Company cars are spread over a wide variety of employees and job functions, including management, sales, pre-sales, technicians, consultants, maintenance and administration.
The company offers financial incentives to drivers selecting low carbon emitting cars as part of its corporate environmental policy and approach and its drive to reduce carbon emissions.
Prior to appointing Fleet Logistics, Fujitsu Technology Solutions managed its car fleets inhouse.
Peter Soliman, chief executive officer of Fleet Logistics, said: “We will be looking to achieve major cost savings and process efficiency, improve transparency and maximise our expertise to innovate, as well as providing drivers with an enhanced driver experience.
“We will provide a fully outsourced solution which is not just operational, but will also provide strategic support and expertise to further increase Fujitsu’s return on investment.”
