IFC Fleet Services has signed an agreement with rental management company Goodwood Rental to offer mobility services to fleet operators.
As part of the deal, IFC will also provide administrative support to Goodwood Rental’s existing business.
Goodwood Rental offers rental intervention management for corporates, in addition to cost control, and provides use of online reporting services.
The new partnership hopes to expand access to vehicles for their clients, creating an amalgamated portfolio of over 500,000 vehicles.
The two companies hope to develop new rental services, such as 12-month mini-leases, and provide access to mileage management and logistics support.
This agreement comes 18 months after IFC’s fleet was boosted 15% by the acquisition of Spectrum Car Scheme Management, and IFC see this as a continuation of their expansion plans.
Paul Talbot, managing director of IFC, said: “The Goodwood portfolio sits very well with our own…and we see this as a natural extension of the fleet services package that we provide to our customers.
“This move will also provide crossover access for Goodwood customers to a complete portfolio of fleet services that they would not previously have been able to access.”
Tony Donnelly, chief executive officer of Goodwood Rental said the partnership with IFC was part of a move to build a broader base for their rental services provision.
Donnelly said: “We wanted to make sure anything we introduced would only impact positively on the rental management service levels that we provide to clients.
“By combining our resources, our customers will now have access to a wider rental supply network…an enlarged pool of more than half a million vehicles – all from a single source.”
