Ford Named as Top Fleet Supplier

A national research project involving Fleet News Fleet200 members has named Ford as the top fleet supplier in two categories: best volume manufacturer and best light commercial vehicle supplier. Ford was also named as the favorite van maker among all brands.

The Fleet200 members account for the operation of over half a million cars and vans in the United Kingdom, and spend over 3 billion dollars per year, representing roughly twenty percent of all the fleets on the road. The survey is an annual project conducted by Fleet News’ sister company Sewells Research and Insight, and are published as a special supplement to the monthly publication. The survey is noted not only for providing rankings in a variety of categories, but also for publishing the strategies in use by fleets across a number of sectors and vertical markets.

Among the important trends noted in this year’s survey is the fact that the architecture/construction/building sector is showing tremendous confidence, reflected by an upswing in their fleet purchases. Also of interest is the increased budgeting for risk management and telematics features. The majority of fleet spending from large companies continues to come out of dedicated fleet departments, most of which are funding their fleets through contract hire.
