New partnership for AA and Lex Autolease

The AA plc has signed a major new business to business (B2B) partnership contract to provide roadside assistance to Lex Autolease.

The new three year contract will support Lex Autolease’s services which it provides to around 300,000 vehicles and will start this month (January 2016).

Service in the UK will be provided by the AA’s 3,000-plus patrols and includes roadside assistance, recovery, incident management and European cover.

Bob Mackenzie, AA executive chairman, said, ‘Lex Autolease is the market leader in fleet management and is a fleet funding specialist, offering vehicle leasing for fleets of all sizes, and it is our job to help keep it that way. We are delighted to be providing its valued customers with year round peace of mind at the roadside. We have invested and continue to invest heavily in our business to provide state of the art dedicated operational support in the UK.’

Tim Porter, Lex Autolease managing director, added, ‘We’re delighted to be entering into to this agreement with the AA. Roadside assistance is naturally a crucial part of our overall mobility offering, and this contract means we will continue to provide our customers with an excellent level of support when they need it most.’

The Lex Autolease contract win will add to the AA’s B2B business which serves approximately 10 million customers in total.
