LeasePlan UK and Northgate Vehicle Hire have signed a contract,
under the terms of which Northgate will provide medium-term leasing
and spot hire of light commercial vehicles (LCVs) to LeasePlan’s
customers, through its FlexiVan rental product.
The contract renews an existing agreement which has run for the
past 20 months, and sees LeasePlan and Northgate extending their
partnership until the end of 2009.
Just over a quarter (34,000 units) of LeasePlan’s 130,000-strong
fleet is made up of commercial vehicles, which the lessor sees as a
“major business opportunity” in the context of a slowing
FlexiVan allows customers to hire vans ranging in size from
“car-derived vans through to panel vans, Lutons and specialist
units”, according to Northgate.
