Rental firm Europcar has opened a new Van Hub site at Trafford Park along the M6 corridor to serve the North West. The latest addition brings the total of Europcar’s van supersites up to 14, which it claimed is the largest network of specialist LCV rental sites in the UK. Europcar said the Trafford Park outlet offers customers delivery and collection within four hours and could cater for bulk orders of more than 20 vans on short- or long-term hire arrangements.
Telematics firm Lightfoot and racking supplier Bott have secured positions on the Procurement for Housing (PfH) Tender Framework covering contract hire, fleet management and associated services. As preferred suppliers to the Framework, the companies can be appointed by public sector housing providers without the need for a full tender. PfH manages the purchasing of over £2.5m of goods and services a week.
