    WYG Group PLC case study

    WYG raised concerns regarding end of contract re-charges from their incumbent supplier as they believed they were being over-charged. Activa arranged for the outgoing vehicles to be collected by their logistics service team at the point of delivering the new vehicles. The vehicles were taken to a storage department for examination and all damage was itemised and priced for repair. Minor repairs were carried out where appropriate prior to the collection by the incumbent supplier. The service provided by Activa allowed WYG to make comparisons between suppliers for major damage repairs and did indeed highlight discrepancies in the charging structures.

    Camira Fabrics case study

    After Activa were invited to a consultative meeting with Camira it became obvious that one of their primary issues that needed a resolution was their driver policy documents. It had become apparent to both parties that this area had been neglected and was in need of urgent modernisation. Activa offered to re-write their policy with greater emphasis on road risk management. Camira Fabrics now have formal policies in place to cater for 'own fault' accidental damage, they also have permission to check licences online and a robust driver?s policy is now in place to ensure their drivers are driving safely and economically.
