26 April 2017 - Fleet leasing and mobility experts Alphabet today announced that it had commenced deliveries of a fleet of 69 Light Commercial Vehicles for new environmental and property maintenance company, HTS (Property & Environment) Ltd, who commenced trading in February 2017 by Harlow Council.
The fleet of 69 vehicles includes a mix of Ford vehicles from Couriers and Connects through to Transit Customs and Vans which will be delivered in April and May. The first 10 vehicles were delivered to HTS on Friday 7 April.
HTS have procured a fleet of Ford commercial vehicles through Alphabet following a mini competition which was run by The Procurement Partnership Ltd (TPPL) in conjunction with HTS, using the Hertfordshire County Council Contract Hire Framework. TPPL have supported and advised HTS throughout the project.
Neil Rowland, Commercial Director for HTS (pictured) commented: “As a new company which has only been in existence since February this year, it’s crucially important that we hit the ground running to service the needs of our customers, the people of Harlow. For us, this new fleet of 69 commercial vehicles provides our employees with the right tools to do their job in the most efficient and effective way. We provide vital property management and environmental services that the tenants, leaseholders and residents of Harlow rely upon so it is critical that we work with a partner who can live up to their promises and deliver a quality result within tight timeframes. Alphabet have been a new supplier to us but I’ve been really impressed with their collaborative approach and can-do attitude in terms of understanding our needs and providing an excellent, cost-effective solution.”
Dean Hedger, Head of Public Sector for Alphabet explained further: “This new relationship with HTS is another demonstration of the value that Alphabet can deliver to both Public and Private Sector customers. We believe that our offering is unparalleled with the breadth of products and services that we can deliver across both sectors. These days the challenges that Public Sector decision makers face in terms of mobility are complex and solutions need to be achieved under real financial or efficiency pressure. So you need a broad selection of tools and real innovation in your toolkit to be able to meet current and future needs. Whether a customer is looking for a new LCV fleet like HTS, or alternatively seeking a Rental Services provider, Car Sharing platform or more conventional company car offering, increasingly fleet decision makers in the Public Sector are seeing the benefit of working with Alphabet”.
