Greenhous has invested an undisclosed sum in its National Fleet Centre in Shropshire to help fuel its growth ambitions.
The company opened the purpose-built 35-acre site in February this year and the facility has the space for 6,000 vehicles, a 24-hour security system and new digital tracking system to aid with the movement of vehicles.
The new tracking solution includes fuel telematics of the journey for that vehicle and the automatic dispensing of an accurate amount of fuel avoiding over fuelling and the allied costs that this has caused to the company in the past. The National Fleet Centre also has a fuel de-bowsing facility for de-fleeted stock.
A bespoke fleet management system has also been developed which has a portal system for customers to log into enabling them to track their vehicle(s) from the point of order to delivery. The Greenhous logistics operation for transported or driven units includes live tracking and delivery updates for customers.
The site also has a pre-delivery inspection team that can carry out prep and customisation of vehicles before delivery. This includes diagnostics and software updates, commercial vehicle fittings such as dash cameras, ply-lining, racking, wrapping and accessories. Each vehicle receives a valeting service and quality control check before delivery.
Kevin Swinnerton, fleet operations director at Greenhous, said: “Greenhous has invested in this fleet operations centre with a view to becoming market leaders and offering our clients a bespoke solution to their transport needs.
“There is demand for the flexible approach we offer to the industry. The success of the centre in the first nine months of its operation has exceeded our expectations."
