Karcher cuts costs with fleet switch

Cleaning equipment supplier Karcher UK introduced a number of changes to its company car fleet to save costs and improve service. It administered a sale and lease back agreement with fleet provider DaimlerChrysler Services Fleet Management, moving away from its previous outright purchase plan.

Karcher UK management accountant Mark Venner said: "It is a cost saver. It’s an improvement as our staff will now have one number to ring for all services."
