Lex Autolease wins Dairy Crest fleet deal
04 March 2010
Lex Autolease has won a £35 million, 3-year sole supply deal with chilled dairy foods company Dairy Crest.
The leasing company will supply the firm with at least 1,500 vehicles including a 500-strong car fleet made up of Audi's, BMW's, Honda's and Volkswagen's.
A further 1,000 new light commercial vehicles will form Dairy Crests milk delivery fleet and will be a mix of Ford and Mercedes chassis cabs.
The new vehicles will be leased on contract hire using in-house maintenance facilities and mobile engineers contracted by Lex Autolease.
Ian Sorensen, Dairy Crest warehouse and distribution category manager, said: "By consolidating our suppliers and by working in close consultation with Lex Autolease's team, we have been able to effectively increase efficiency and drive down our fleet costs."
