BMW UK and BCA agree record-breaking dock to defleet and beyond vehicle deal
BCA Marketplace has agreed a five-year auto services
solutions contract with BMW (UK) Limited, which includes its specialist leasing
business, Alphabet, and is the largest motor industry service deal ever
announced by the company.
The agreement, which is for a minimum of five years, will
see BCA provide a full range of joined-up solutions including vehicle defleet,
refurbishment, inspection and collection, inventory management and remarketing
both physical and digital for BMW UK.
The agreement is said to be the culmination of BCA Marketplace’s strategy of
being the market leader of integrated solutions for both physical and digital
services to the auto industry.
Over the next five years, BCA will solely defleet,
refurbish, inventory manage and remarket both physically and digitally vehicles
on behalf of BMW UK including 90% volume for Alphabet, the single biggest
remarketing contract BCA has signed in its history.
BMW UK has also agreed a five-year deal for BCA Fleet
Solutions to be the sole defleet and refurbishment partner, with BCA
constructing a new dedicated BMW defleet centre that will handle all its
storage and refurbishment needs.
BCA Logistics has also been awarded a seven-year deal as inspect and collect provider
to BMW and Alphabet.
BMW UK’s remarketing operations manager Stewart Hodges
said: “The BCA business model is unique in its breadth of services across the
supply chain and this provides a compelling customer service offering and
creates efficiencies through synergies across all divisions. For BMW, the
opportunity to partner with BCA across a range of remarketing, logistics,
preparation and inventory management services will bring economies of scale and
generate real value.”
BCA’s chief commercial officer Craig Purvey said: “We are
delighted to have secured this substantial and significant volume of business
from one of our longest standing corporate customers.”
He added “BCA is on the record as stating our strategy is
to integrate along the automotive value chain, focussing on developing extended,
unified solutions: increasing volumes, creating value added services and
improving efficiencies. This significant deal with BMW Group underlines
that BCA is creating the most efficient, sustainable and profitable vehicle
exchange with the capacity to meet the growing needs of the motor industry.”
