Gala Coral Group outsources fleet management

Gala Coral Group will be outsourcing the management of its 300 company cars and 180 grey fleet cars to Fleet Alliance.

In line with the betting and gaming conglomerate’s environmental policy of reducing the CO2 emissions of its fleet, all new vehicles will have a CO2 level of 160g per km or less. Drivers will continue to have the option to choose a Toyota Prius.

Employees will be able to select their next company car online through a new web portal.

Fleet Alliance will also be responsible for licence checking for all drivers, arranging driver training for those identified as high risk, as well as verifying that scheduled service and maintenance is carried out.

Diane Atkins, group efficiency director at Gala Coral Group, said: “[Fleet Alliance] were able to help us meet all of the key objectives of our new company car policy which included continuing to offer a level of choice that is competitive within the employment marketplace, and delivering against our environmental commitments.”

Colin Morgan, head of corporate responsibility at Gala Coral Group, added: “The appointment of Fleet Alliance will ensure that we can continue our work on reducing the environmental impact of our company car fleet.”
