Mercedes-Benz Financial Services has announced that it is to partner with Leasedrive for its fleet finance operations.
Leasedrive will provide support to Mercedes-Benz Financial Services, allowing it to respond with greater efficiency to the requirements of fleet customers and recognise the financing and service requirements of modern fleet operators.
The move will allow Mercedes-Benz fleet customers greater flexibility and range in their financing and servicing options - as well as benefitting from the experience and expertise of Leasedrive in the leasing sector.
Mercedes-Benz Financial Services provides support to Mercedes-Benz UK, allowing it to build on the momentum already achieved as it became the UK's fastest-growing premium brand in 2012.
Mercedes-Benz UK has seen significant changes in its fleet operations and the range of cars it offers - spearheaded by the A-Class, the new CLA-Class and the new E-Class - allowing it to be more competitive than ever.
Nick Andrews, head of fleet sales, Mercedes-Benz UK, said: “We have ambitious plans for the future, supported by the strongest range of products we've ever had.
“Mercedes-Benz is already the fastest-growing premium manufacturer in the UK and now my team is focussed on allowing it to become the Number One premium fleet manufacturer in the UK.
“Retaining our current customers and attracting new business in the fleet sector means delivering a relevant, high-quality, efficient and responsive service and we're setting in place measures to ensure we hit these targets.”
The partnership with Leasedrive will start in the autumn.
