Seven-year deal won to replace fleet

Contract hire and fleet management provider Specialist Fleet Services (SFS) is celebrating winning a seven-year fleet replacement contract from Caerphilly County Borough Council.

The contract involves the provision of more than 350 vehicles, including vans, tippers, gully machines, sweepers, tractors and grounds maintenance equipment. While a small number of vehicles will be delivered during May and June, the first big tranche of 180 vehicles will arrive in September.

The new ‘fit for purpose’ fleet will have the correct specification and interior design, as well as the latest lighting and safety equipment, to improve service and efficiency.

Mary Powell, the council’s fleet manager, said: “The contract is very flexible and there are a host of community benefits such as future-proofing our workshop, apprenticeship schemes and improving health and safety standards. It isn’t just about vehicles and maintenance.

“We will be taking advantage of SFS’s expertise across workshops, vehicles, safety and back office, as well as adopting its fleet management system to control and monitor vehicles.”
