JCT600 Vehicle Leasing Solutions, the specialist leasing and fleet management division of Bradford-based JCT600, is to supply a full fleet management service to railway training and assessment provider Intertrain including the provision of around 60 vehicles over the next three years.
Based in Doncaster, Intertrain delivers a wide range of consultancy and railway professional services and has over 40 trainers and assessors who run nationwide training courses. Its fleet of Volkswagen cars and vans will be used by personnel travelling around the UK to deliver courses at its training centres and on site.
As well as supplying its contract hire needs, JCT600 VLS will manage Intertrain’s grey fleet, handle its driving licence checks, provide an external tracker system and supply fuel cards.
Samantha Moss, North East regional sales manager for JCT600 VLS, says: “Intertrain has appointed us as its sole supplier and given us responsibility to handle all of its fleet needs. We have worked closely with the company to compile a complete strategy of fleet terms and procedures and Intertrain has already ordered 20 vehicles from us.
“As ever, our success comes down to our ability to provide excellent customer care – Intertrain wanted to source a good quality, reliable company car and also wanted the peace of mind of knowing that a reputable and experience fleet management provider would look after all of its needs.”
Michael Godridge, financial manager at Intertrain, said: “We started using JCT600 following a period of growth where a number of vehicles were required. As a business, we do not have an internal fleet controller and JCT600 was able to competitively supply and provide a package of services matched to our requirements, ensuring we were meeting our legal obligations.
“Having a single point of contact, who is knowledgeable and enthusiastic about their role, takes away the usual pressures when sourcing vehicles. I generally only need to make one phone call and will have all the necessary information to make the correct decision.”
Paul Walters, sales director at JCT600 Vehicle Leasing Solutions, commented: “In recent months, we’ve seen a string of new contract wins, thanks to the hard work and expertise of our team. This is great news for JCT600 VLS as we continue to move forward and realise our growth plans.”
