Operating lease continues to be the most popular method of funding vans among organisations which took part in this year’s Fleet200 research, but it is less widespread than a year ago.

In 2019, 60% of respondents said they use it to procure light commercial vehicles (LCVs), but this year the proportion has fallen to 48%.

Outright purchase remains the second most used funding method, but this, too, has seen its popularity reduce: last year it was used by 52% of respondents – this time it is 47%.
