Venson Automotive Solutions, the fleet management specialists, has secured a 10-year contract to administer Hertfordshire County Council’s complex vehicle fleet and undertake all service, maintenance and repair work at a new state-of-the-art workshop.
The Surrey-based company which has 11,500 cars and commercial vehicles on its books fought off stiff competition in an open tender to retain the contract, which it has held for five years.
The new contract, signed in June, has an option to extend for a further five years and is one of the longest ever awarded in the fleet industry and could potentially run until 2024.
Venson Automotive Solutions’ managing director Samantha Roff said: “Securing such a long and complex contract underlines not only our marketplace competitiveness, but the faith that the council has in our business and our employees to ensure that their fleet operates at peak efficiency with vehicle downtime kept to an absolute minimum.”
The contract covers Hertfordshire County Council’s fleet of 2300 vehicles; cars, light commercial vehicles, welfare ambulances, library vehicles and larger commercial vehicles; and the blue light and non-emergency vehicles for Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue Service. Venson Automotive Solutions will provide a range of workshop services as well as traditional service, maintenance and repair (SMR) work. The contract also includes the provision of two mobile response vehicles on a 24/7 basis that will deliver a dedicated breakdown and recovery service to the council’s fleet.
