Flexible rental key during period of unprecedented demand and uncertainty

David Brennan, CEO of Nexus Vehicle Rental

Many UK businesses are facing continued economic uncertainty and the spread of COVID-19 is presenting unique challenges for communities up and down the country.

Retailers – particularly supermarkets – are experiencing unprecedented demand for home deliveries and require room to flex their fleets to ensure the mobility of their supply chains throughout this rapidly evolving situation.

Key workers across a myriad of industries, including retail and logistics, now urgently require access to flexible mobility supply networks to serve distributed communities across the country.

The UK’s vehicle hire industry is already a vital part of the supply chain for these businesses and an ideal solution for those that need to rapidly scale-up their fleets whilst mitigating costs.

The Government and the British Retail Consortium continue to communicate that the UK does not have a shortage of essentials like food, toiletries and medicines, but the challenge is actually sourcing the ‘people and lorries’ to get these items on supermarket or pharmacy shelves, as well as delivered to consumers’ homes.

In these difficult and demanding times, vehicle rental companies can help retailers and those in the logistics industry find the right solution for their mobility needs.

As additional safeguarding measures and restrictions are put in place across the UK, Nexus can continue to provide cars, vans, trucks and HGVs to ensure the UK’s key workers are mobile and essential services such as food deliveries are able to continue.

In these challenging times Nexus, like all businesses, has the wellbeing of its workforce, customers and suppliers at the centre of its operations and is prioritising delivering excellent service and keeping people and essential goods mobile, wherever and whenever it is safe to do so.
