Morgan Sindall Group, a UK construction and regeneration business, has partnered with Northgate Vehicle Hire to reduce capital outlay for its 1,000-plus fleet of commercial vehicles.
The new partnership sees Northgate provide Morgan Sindall Group with a complete fleet solution. This includes more than 550 rental vehicles, as well as fleet management services such as pay-as-you-go service, maintenance and repair, a direct driver line, breakdown and recovery, and vehicle monitoring services for the remaining funded light commercial fleet.
The driving factor behind the partnership was Northgate’s ability to provide Morgan Sindall Group with transparency across its fleet of commercial vehicles, which in turn works to reduce costs for the company.
In addition to these services, Northgate’s fleet management software, Fleet Dynamix, offers Morgan Sindall Group the capability to view and manage its owned, leased and rented commercial vehicles in real time, and provides comprehensive management information across the entire light commercial fleet.
Jonathan Hall, director of plant at Morgan Sindall, commented: “The complete fleet solutions package that Northgate has constructed for Morgan Sindall Group provides us with the ability to choose the correct acquisition method for our light commercial fleet, dependent upon each of our individual contract commitments.
"The flexibility of utilising rental vehicles or funding vehicles over a longer period, allied with the comprehensive fleet management expertise available from our partnership with Northgate, will undoubtedly allow us to shape future fleet policy and result in an overall reduction in fleet running costs.”
