Betting and gaming conglomerate Gala Coral Group has chosen
Glasgow-based Fleet Alliance to replace its current leasing

Fleet Alliance was selected from a shortlist of four to manage
the group’s 300-strong company car fleet and 180 grey fleet

The selection is part of a bid to make substantial efficiency
savings in the course of the next three years.

It was also aimed at reducing the company car fleet’s
environmental impact, with measures including capping C02 emissions
at 160g/km for company car drivers and measuring mileage

Ford and Toyota will be swapped for models from the Volkswagen
Audi Group for most company car drivers, while Mercedes and BMW
models will be available for senior management.

Directors will still have a free choice of vehicle, while
drivers wanting a hybrid option will continue to be able to choose
a Toyota Prius.

Among other new measures, there will also be a competitive
tendering approach for all new cars in the fleet, using Fleet
Alliance’s panel of six funders – a move expected to create savings
of up to £300,000 over three years.

Fleet Alliance will also check licences for all drivers and
arrange training for those deemed “high risk”

The transition will be rolled out fully on 4 May.
