Alphabet secures sole supplier deal with English Heritage

Leasing and mobility expert Alphabet has been appointed as sole supplier for English Heritage’s fleet of cars and vans.

The partnership signifies a turning point for English Heritage’s fleet operations. Alphabet’s public sector team has been working closely with the charity to identify opportunities for optimising and streamlining mobility across the charity’s wider fleet, which currently includes a mix of owned, leased, and rented vehicles.

English Heritage is also benefitting from the team’s electrified vehicle (EV) expertise, as it looks to build on its green credentials and transition to a more sustainable fleet.

Danny Forrest, procurement manager at English Heritage, said: “We needed a mobility provider with a wealth of public sector experience who could deliver an efficient and cost-effective solution. Alphabet has operated as an extension of our team from day one, recommending process improvements and pinpointing areas where savings can be made as well as providing ongoing support to help us future-proof our fleet. With a dedicated account manager and easy-to-use digital systems, we’re saving time and expense too.

Andrew Parker, public sector account manager at Alphabet, said: “We’re delighted to join hands with English Heritage, ensuring the right combination of vehicles and support is in place for the charity’s autumn events and beyond. With over 30 years’ public sector experience, we pride ourselves on making mobility both simple and stress-free.

“Juggling stretched budgets alongside the need to improve fleet efficiency and sustainability is a common challenge for public sector organisations. By gaining a solid understanding of English Heritage’s individual needs early on we’ve been able to streamline operations and make sure its future fleet provides value for money while helping the charity work towards their environmental objectives.”
