ATS Euromaster on call for British Gas van fleet

17 July 2014 #CV Sector #News #Van

News from British Gas: ATS Euromaster has won a new contract with British Gas to fit and service tyres across the energy provider’s fleet of 13,000 vans.

ATS Euromaster’s nationwide network coverage, detailed fleet reporting and expertise in managing B2B accounts were crucial in securing the account, and as a part of the new agreement it will be rolling-out a full Michelin tyre policy across the fleet.

The comprehensive policy, which includes monthly fleet checks carried out by ATS Euromaster’s experienced tyre inspectors using the company’s new FleetSure tool, allows British Gas’ tyres to be closely monitored. This ensures that each tyre is used to its optimum range, and any issues are spotted quickly, reducing tyre-related downtime.

Colin Marriott, General Manager of the fleet at British Gas, says, “It’s critical to British Gas that our fleet is maintained cost-effectively and to the highest degree of safety. This new contract with ATS Euromaster has helped us to meet these challenges.

“We have a rigorous tyre maintenance programme in place which requires inspections four times a year and winter tyres fitted as standard all year round, but ATS Euromaster has really stepped up to the job. They have already checked 1,100 of our vans in the last two weeks alone.”

Simon Tattersall, ATS Euromaster’s Head of National Fleets, says, “With nearly five decades of experience in the van sector, ATS Euromaster has the skills and expertise needed to keep British Gas’ vans running, so the company can concentrate on serving its customers fully.”

As part of the new agreement British Gas drivers receive a range of benefits, including access to ATS Euromaster’s network of approximately 345 service centres, more than 95% of which can accommodate for large light commercial vehicles.

In the unlikely event of a tyre failure, British Gas also has access to the same nationwide 24/7 roadside rapid response as some of the UK’s largest truck fleets, ensuring vehicles are back on the road as quickly as possible.
