Pretium Frameworks has launched its second generation Flexible Fleet Services framework, with the aim of supporting organisations and as they transition to electric vehicles.
Delivered by Northgate Vehicle Hire, the new PCR 2015-compliant framework – which includes additional services such as accident management, fleet management, and fuel cards – is structured to help organisations prepare for the transition to electric vehicles.
Commenting on the development, Nick Hann, Pretium’s head of Frameworks, said: “With the sale of new petrol and diesel cars and vans set to end in 2030, choice and flexibility will be a fundamental requirement for fleet arrangements, and this second-generation framework will provide a route for fleet owners to rent electric vehicles, supporting them to move towards a sustainable fleet solution.”
Northgate says its branch network and fleet size allows it to get vehicles to customers quickly and keep them on the road longer with minimal downtime.
Neil McCrossan, Sales and Marketing director at Northgate, said: “Adding EVs to your fleet should form part of a wider mobility solution.
“Ownership or contract hire will commit fleets to years in vehicles that will have been superseded by newer, more capable and cost-effective models.
“Through this framework we can continue to offer a full mobility solution as customers plan their transition towards 2030.”
Pretium Frameworks Ltd develops and manages specialist frameworks on behalf of contracting authorities operating in the public sector across the UK.
