Colas Rail, one of the UK and Europe’s leading suppliers of railway infrastructure services, has signed a solus outsourcing agreement with Ogilvie Fleet for the supply and management of almost 900 company cars and light commercial vehicles.
The new deal is the largest sole supply contract by fleet size won by Ogilvie Fleet, one of the UK’s fastest growing vehicle leasing and fleet management companies with almost 17,000 company cars and vans on its books.
Ogilvie Fleet won a competitive tender for the supply of cars and sub-3.5 tonne vans on a full maintenance contract hire arrangement with the addition of accident management. Furthermore all new vans supplied will be speed limited to help reduce Colas Rail’s carbon footprint.
Following Ogilvie Fleet’s appointment on a four-year contract, the company is in the process of delivering an initial order for 175 Ford Transit Connects and Transit Double Cabs following fitting out by System Edstrom.
Colas Rail, which is headquartered in London with offices nationwide, operates an all-Ford light commercial vehicle diesel fleet numbering some 800 units and a 90-strong multi-badge company car fleet. All vehicles are operated on a 36-month replacement cycle.
