Nexus Vehicle Rental has reached its three millionth vehicle rental booking this month, following a record year of trading.
It took Nexus more than 11 years to reach the first million milestone, around seven years for the second million, while the last million has been achieved in just over three years.
David Brennan, CEO at Nexus Vehicle Rental, said: “The last 12 months have continued to be hugely challenging for all businesses however, we are really pleased to have been able to continue supporting our customers throughout this time.
“To reach the milestone of our three millionth booking is a great testament to the hard work and dedication of our team and I’m proud that we have achieved this extra million in less than three years.”
For more than 20 years, Nexus has supported some of the UK’s largest fleets in the logistics, construction, utilities, wholesale and retail sectors by enabling direct access to the largest rental supply chain across all vehicle groups, including cars, vans, HGVs, electric vehicles and specialist vehicles.
Operating a supply chain of 550,000 vehicles from more than 2,000 UK locations, Nexus uses technology to connect customers to any vehicle, anywhere, anytime through its rental booking and management platform, IRIS.
IRIS allows its customers to control their rental fleet while the management information (MI) suite spots trends in vehicle usage to identify efficiencies in rental solutions.
Brennan said: “Despite the obstacles that we have faced as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, Brexit and various supply shortages impacting the sector, we have continued to develop our offering – launching new products and investing in our team – and, thanks to our breadth of suppliers and tech-led solutions, deliver a great level of service to our customers.”
In response to customer demand coupled with the challenges facing the marketplace in 2021, Nexus has focused on enhancing its proposition – including the addition of plant hire to its supply portfolio – and introducing new wider mobility solutions to overcome and mitigate the issues affecting the automotive industry.
