While driver recruitment issues were highlighted on BBC Breakfast this week (FTA interview on Monday 23rd November), in recent months Prohire has taken real action to support customers in addressing this very issue.
As one of the UK’s leading commercial vehicle fleet management and rental specialists, Prohire has made a multi-million pound investment in high specification vehicles for its rental fleet, designed to support logistics operators by providing rental vehicles that are both cost effective to operators and appeal to their drivers.
Sales Director, Andrew Morley says: “During the autumn we made another significant investment in rental vehicles to enhance our support capability for new and existing customers alike. From 3.5 tonne panel vans and 7.5 – 26 tonne rigids to 44-tonne tractor units, the common thread has been specification enhancement.
“We completely understand the issues facing the industry and the vehicle specifications we’ve stipulated, across the board, mean that when renting from Prohire customers have access to rental vehicles that drivers really want to use.”
The latest vehicles ordered for Prohire’s rental fleet include 3.5 tonne Citroen ‘Enterprise’ panel vans. “This specification includes air conditioning, rear parking sensors, cruise control with variable speed limiter and satellite navigation with a 5” colour touchscreen,” says Morley.
“And the 44 tonne units that we’ve added to our rental fleet are top-of-the-range Mercedes Actros tractor units fitted with BigSpace cabs. They even have a fridge installed, which may not seem much, but to a driver on the road all day long it’s a much-appreciated comfort. Its these touches that can make the difference when it comes to recruiting drivers.”
The Mercedes Actros tractor units also feature Predictive Powertrain Control (PPC) for enhanced fuel efficiency. “Fuel consumption is critical for operators so addressing this cost at the same time as making the vehicle attractive to drivers perfectly suits our customer focussed approach, our attention to detail and our determination to provide nothing short of exceptional customer care,” adds Morley.
Leading commercial vehicle fleet management specialist Prohire PLC has appointed Mark Kitchener as a Fleet Engineer to further enhance and manage the engineering excellence provided to customers through its extensive national network of service providers.
Mark joins the Fleet Management team at Prohire having worked in service and fleet management for over 17-years. “The role will call upon all of my experience and knowledge,” says Mark. “As one of the Fleet Engineers at Prohire I will be responsible for managing our service network to ensure our service providers offer the highest standards of customer support and vehicle compliance to our ever growing customer base.”
The role will also see Mark conduct fleet engineering reviews with customers to ensure, from an engineering perspective, that vehicle uptime is maximised so customers can fully capitalise on vehicle utilisation.
“Through this customer focused approach Prohire proactively supports customers to drive the profitability of their vehicles,” says Mark. “This attention to detail and Prohire’s commitment to individual customer care stand out in this industry and I am absolutely delighted to be joining such a professional team.”
Mark reports to Prohire Operations Manager, Mick Steele who says of the appointment: “We are thrilled to have Mark join the team. The knowledge and understanding he has of this industry along with his drive and enthusiasm set him apart from his peers and I believe he will be a real ambassador for us.”
Mark is married with a school-aged daughter, he lives in Castle Donington, and outside of work is a keen aviator and has the ambition of gaining his Private Pilots Licence one day in the future.
