Virgin Media appoints Leaseplan as supplier
12 October 2010
LeasePlan has signed a sole-supply agreement with Virgin Media to provide a range of services to its fleet.
The leasing company will manage a fleet of around 2600 vehicles, with plans for further expansion over the next 18 months.
Its fleet management for Virgin will include accident management and glass management, mileage management, fuel card management and analysis, driving licence checking and TFL registration.
Leaseplan is also managing Virgin's transition from finance lease to contract hire.
Paul Harris, executive director of property, facilities and fleet at Virgin Media, said: "LeasePlan secured this business by demonstrating a competitive commercial proposition and through rigorous testing of their operational systems, and strong management principles. LeasePlan are delivering against all commitments and have managed a complex transition process, professionally and under demanding timeframes."
Matt Dyer, LeasePlan commercial director, said: "The agreement is a testament to both companies' ability to work in partnership to agree a robust handover plan for the existing fleet. Virgin Media was looking for proactive fleet management for its continuing success and this is a major opportunity for us to demonstrate the LeasePlan service offering."
