Online PR News – 07-January-2013 – Darlington – Northgate Vehicle Hire, market leader in flexible vehicle hire and complete fleet solutions, has partnered with Morgan Sindall Group plc, a leading UK construction and regeneration group, in reducing the outlay of capital on its 1,000+ fleet of commercial vehicles.

The new partnership sees Northgate provide Morgan Sindall Group with a complete fleet solution, which includes over 550 rental vehicles in addition to fleet management services such as pay as you go service, maintenance and repair, a direct driver line, breakdown and recovery and vehicle monitoring services for the remaining funded light commercial fleet. The driving factor behind the partnership was Northgate’s ability to provide Morgan Sindall Group with transparency across its fleet of commercial vehicles, which in turn works to reduce costs for the company.

In addition to these services, Northgate’s unique fleet management software, Fleet Dynamix, offers Morgan Sindall Group the capability to view and manage its owned, leased and rented commercial vehicles in real time, and provides comprehensive management information across the entire light commercial fleet.

Andy Riley, Commercial Sales Manager for Northgate Vehicle Hire, commented:

It works on diverse projects across the length and breadth of the country, and with this comes the need for a flexible and effective fleet solution, one which can be achieved via Northgate’s complete fleet solution package. Not only do we supply Morgan Sindall Group with high quality, fuel-efficient rental vehicles but we offer the company a bespoke fleet management service that allows it to reduce fixed costs and maintain operational efficiency. We are confident that our partnership will continue to grow from strength to strength in 2013.”

Jonathan Hall, Director of Plant at Morgan Sindall, commented: “The complete fleet solutions package that Northgate has constructed for Morgan Sindall Group provides us with the ability to choose the correct acquisition method for our light commercial fleet, dependent upon each of our individual contract commitments. The flexibility of utilising rental vehicles or funding vehicles over a longer period, allied with the comprehensive fleet management expertise available from our partnership with Northgate, will undoubtedly allow us to shape future fleet policy and result in an overall reduction in fleet running costs.”
