Alphabet delivers new van fleet to HTS for property and environmental services

Alphabet delivers new van fleet to HTS for property and environmental services

Fleet leasing and mobility provider Alphabet has commenced deliveries of a fleet of 69 light commercial vehicles for new environmental and property maintenance company, HTS (Property & Environment), which started trading in February by Harlow Council.  

The fleet of 69 vehicles includes a mix of Ford vans from Couriers and Connects through to Transit Customs and Vans. The first 10 vehicles were delivered to HTS in early April.  

HTS have procured a fleet of Ford commercial vehicles through Alphabet following a mini competition which was run by The Procurement Partnership Ltd (TPPL) in conjunction with HTS, using the Hertfordshire County Council Contract Hire Framework. TPPL has supported and advised HTS throughout the project.  

Neil Rowland, HTS commercial director, said: “As a new company which has only been in existence since February this year, it’s crucially important that we hit the ground running to service the needs of our customers, the people of Harlow.  

“For us, this new fleet of 69 commercial vehicles provides our employees with the right tools to do their job in the most efficient and effective way. We provide vital property management and environmental services that the tenants, leaseholders and residents of Harlow rely upon so it is critical that we work with a partner who can live up to their promises and deliver a quality result within tight timeframes. Alphabet has been a new supplier to us but I’ve been really impressed with their collaborative approach and can-do attitude in terms of understanding our needs and providing an excellent, cost-effective solution.”  

Dean Hedger, head of public sector for Alphabet, said: “This new relationship with HTS is another demonstration of the value that Alphabet can deliver to both public and private sector customers. We believe that our offering is unparalleled with the breadth of products and services that we can deliver across both sectors.  

“These days the challenges that public sector decision makers face in terms of mobility are complex and solutions need to be achieved under real financial or efficiency pressure. So you need a broad selection of tools and real innovation in your toolkit to be able to meet current and future needs.”
