Siemens launches automated car rental scheme with Enterprise

Date: 30 March 2022   |   Author: Sean Keywood

Siemens UK has launched an automated rental programme for its staff through Enterprise Car Club.

The scheme gives more than 15,000 employees access to more than 1,400 on-street vehicles in 200 locations across the UK, as well as dedicated car club vehicles already on-site at Siemens offices in Lincoln, Hull, Aberdeen, Congleton, and Manchester.

The on-site programme is already said to have reduced the number of pool cars Siemens UK operates by a third.

Employees use their Siemens credit card to book trips via the Enterprise Car Club app, which tracks every journey through the company's travel management system to ensure it is compliant with policy.

Siemens UK head of mobility services Wayne Warburton said: "We have an excellent partnership with Enterprise. Not only were they instrumental in helping us manage the challenges of Covid, they've now helped us to reduce cost, emissions and business mileage while fully supporting a diverse range of employee travel needs.

"The opportunity to extend car club access across the whole organisation, alongside the dedicated vehicle programme, makes sense because of Enterprise's very regionalised network. Enterprise's car club and branch network is located in many smaller communities and even rural areas around the UK, not just in city centres.

"They're the only rental car company that could successfully deliver this scale of initiative and help us manage the current pressures on new vehicle acquisition."

"Because so many of Enterprise's on-street vehicles are low- and zero-emission, the programme reaches our sustainability goals without affecting the business-critical journeys employees have to make to locations like wind farms." 

Enterprise assistant vice-president of business mobility for Europe Adrian Bewley said: "The close integration between our branch and car club business has enabled us to advise businesses when a car club vehicle is the best option for a particular employee and journey.

"This brings an enormous opportunity to reduce costs in delivery and collection for the client and make business travel more convenient for workers.

"Siemens UK is one of a growing number of UK-wide organisations that are seeing the benefits of how a car club can help to achieve a wide array of innovation, mobility and business goals. It continues to be at the forefront of employee mobility by looking at solutions that support employees - especially in a rapidly changing workplace - by enabling business travel in an efficient and sustainable way."
