Leaseplan, the UK's second largest fleet management company has replaced its sole tyre supplier, Kwik-Fit, with three fitment chains.
Leaseplan has appointed ATS, National Tyres and Fleet Tyre Network as new tyre providers.
The second-placed BC50 company said the appointment of three suppliers means it has increased coverage for both car and commercial vehicle tyre replacement and repairs.
"Following a rigorous selection process, we awarded the business to the three suppliers that demonstrated the scale, capability and great customer service necessary to meet the needs of our drivers, regardless of their location or vehicle type," said Neil Dixon, head of procurement and supplier management at Leaseplan UK.
"We demand an innovative, customer focused approach to the management of our drivers' vehicles, and it is vital that our suppliers share this ethos. We are therefore confident this network will bring significant benefits to our customers," he added.
