TMC will be providing mileage capture and audit services to Hitachi Capital Vehicle Solutions (HCVS) customers as part of a new deal.
The services will include company car and grey fleet drivers, as well as LCVs, enabling employees to be reimbursed for business trips. and deductions for private usage on fuel cards.
This is through TMC's Mileage Track app, which can automatically capture business trips by linking to the vehicle's Bluetooth.
This is designed to reduce admin for drivers, and also allows HCVS to identify where EVs could potentially be deployed, based on the types of journeys made.
HCVS customers will also be offered products from TMC's iQ range.
HCVS head of corporate sales Andy Fuller said: "We're pleased to offer greater value to our customers thanks to this partnership. We are committed to providing data-led solutions to help customers optimise their fleets.
"This partnership supports our unique offering to make electrification a reality for our customers, as journey data is key not only for expenses and time administration and management, but also understanding viability for electrification."
TMC managing director Paul Hollick said: "We are delighted to have been selected as Hitachi's chosen partner, and share the same mission to reduce fleet costs and emissions and improve driver safety and experience.
"From the recording of business mileage, payroll services for employee reimbursement or deduction for any personal use on fuel cards to the identification of vehicles that could be swapped for EVs, our range of data-led services will give Hitachi's clients the information they need to optimise their fleets."
