British American Tobacco extends fleet contract

British American Tobacco (BAT) has extended its 350-car fleet contract for a further three years.

Following a review process, the tobacco group decided to extend its contract with Leasedrive Group. The contract has been in place since 2004.

Viv Windrum, fleet manager at BAT in the UK, said: “Following an extensive review process, we were happy to renew. Leasedrive continually improves the products and services it offers to us to make the employee driver experience the best possible.”

Roddy Graham, commercial director at Leasedrive Group, added: “Of the BAT fleet, 48% of cars are under contract hire and 52% are owned by BAT but managed by us.

“BAT operates a user-chooser fleet policy to maximise the attractiveness of the employee benefit and, in support, we also provide online driver licence checking, accident management and car rental services.”
