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.”
