Mitchells & Butlers says cheers to Fleet Operations 05 February 2016

Restaurant, pub and bar chain Mitchells & Butlers has outsourced management of its 550-strong company car fleet to independent fleet management services provider Fleet Operations.

The firm has taken over full day-to-day responsibility for car operations, managing a multi-bid panel of leasing providers to ensure contract hire rates remain competitive.

“The company car continues to play a key role in the recruitment and retention of high quality staff,” states Ross Jackson, Fleet Operations’ chief executive.

“By focusing on cost control and best practice fleet management, we will help ensure the business retains an important competitive advantage.”

Fleet Operations has also negotiated a separate ‘pay as you go’ maintenance contract to provide a fully-disclosed cost and net price on every item of spend, he adds.

“We went out to a wide range of potential suppliers and selected Fleet Operations because of their transparent and ethical business model, which removes a lot of the traditional ‘smoke and mirrors’ associated with the provision of fleet services,” comments Darrell Wilson, director of procurement & supply chain at Mitchells & Butlers.
