As a recognised provider of environmental solutions, Oran Environmental Solutions recently took the decision to outsource the repair and maintenance service for all its Scottish based vehicles, selecting to enter a partnership arrangement with the Euroway Group for the provision of its fleet management requirements.
As part of the deal, Euroway will be responsible for the fleet management of over 190 pieces of Oran Environmental Solutions vehicle equipment including tractor units and rigids, as well a wide range of waste management trailers and tankers.
According to Peter Deighan, Procurement and Transport Manager at Oran Environmental Solutions, “Prior to our recent Head Office move, we had been planning the outsourcing of the maintenance of our fleet. We have now relocated to our new Head Office in Grangemouth, which has no workshop facilities, and therefore the critical decision was taken to source a partner to provide this business activity for us in the future.”
Over a long period, Oran Environmental Solutions talked at length with three potential suitors for its on going fleet management programme, however according to Peter Deighan, it was Euroway that came up with the most suitable overall cost effective package, giving Oran Environmental Solutions the “one stop shop” facility that they were seeking to achieve.
As Peter Deighan said, “No matter what the question, issue or requirement is from any of our depots, all we have to do is to contact Euroway on its Freephone 24/7 telephone number. The requirement is then handled by Euroway, and the response is measured on a daily, weekly and monthly basis by KPI's, ensuring we are provided with an efficient and effective service at all times”
“The positive Euroway approach to customer service and their 24/7 service support facility, really impressed us and led us to appoint Euroway as our business partners,” said Peter Deighan.
Following the successful tender process, Euroway commenced the Fleet Management programme for Oran Environmental Solutions in November 2008, and both parties now meet on a monthly basis for ongoing review and forward action planning.
“Oran Environmental Solutions is recognised as a leader within the waste management industry, committed to providing its customers with a high quality and diverse range of integrated services, including the treatment, recycling and disposal of dry, liquid and organic waste streams. By placing the management of its fleet in Euroway's hands, Oran Environmental Solutions has further confirmed Euroway's high standing in the commercial vehicle sector,” said Mark Howell, Group Commercial Director, The Euroway Group, “At Euroway, we believe that we have an unrivalled and comprehensive range of services to offer fleets. Major landmark deals, such as this one with Oran Environmental Solutions, not only strengthen our foothold up in Scotland, but they are testament to the skills we have within the company to provide blue chip companies with proven effective fleet management services.”
“As the country and the industry as whole begins to experience difficult times ahead, Euroway is finding that more and more commercial vehicle fleets, big and small alike, are looking to secure their fleet costs with a straight line budget. With our range of Fleet Management services, we are perfectly placed to provide these risk-free, “sleep-easy” solutions for our customers,” added Mark Howell.
