Ford Fleet Management, a new company set up by Ford and ALD Automotive, is now open for business in the UK.

It claims to offer a one-stop shop for vehicle supply, funding, and in-life management, with an uptime-centric approach.

In addition to Ford vehicles, the company – which covers both LCVs and cars – can also supply vehicles from other brands.

Ford Fleet Management’s products and services are said to be backed by a digitally connected eco-system, and an expert team of industry specialists operating across the UK.

Ford Fleet Management UK managing director John Wright (pictured) said: “We know companies rely on vehicles and drivers being out on the road – performing tasks, moving goods and carrying people, so our fleet management propositions are designed to ensure fleet vehicles are working for their business at all times. 

“This is why our uptime-centric approach is at the heart of all of our products and services, and our experts are ready with fleet solutions tailored to meet every business need.”

Head of corporate sales Stuart Williams said: “We consider that when we network one-to-one our sales team will always be able to deliver the most useful and bespoke solutions to all of our customers. 

“One size does not fit all in our experience, and we have the expertise to deliver optimised solutions for each individual customers’ needs.

“We haven’t re-invented the wheel, but what we have done is create a modern, efficient and customer-focussed fleet management services company that manages vehicle uptime for its customers.”
