Nexus Vehicle Rental has expanded into the Heavy Goods Vehicle (HGV) market, becoming the first and only provider to offer a UK wide HGV rental solution alongside cars and vans through a single source platform.
Nexus has always been at the forefront of innovation in the vehicle rental industry, providing access to over half a million vehicles via 2,000 locations at the click of a mouse. It will now offer access to over 50,000 HGVs from 262 UK locations via an unrivalled network of over 50 suppliers.
Its new HGV booking and management dashboard provides access to over 125 different types of vehicle from five tonnes upwards. The first-of-its-kind software will speed up the booking and administrative process, centralising everything in one system and enabling transport managers to keep on top of compliance paperwork.
The HGV market is bound by strict rules and regulations, with numerous cases of operators losing their licenses due to compliance issues in the last few years alone. The Nexus HGV portal tracks all Preventative Maintenance Inspection (PMI), MOT and Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations (LOLER) requirements, helping to safeguard operations and reputations.
Many companies looking to rent HGVs do so by searching locally on an individual basis. The roll-out of Nexus’ HGV service offers a cost-effective solution for managing numerous HGV rentals through one central portal, regardless of supplier and location. It has been road-tested by a number of companies ahead of its launch.
Based near Leeds, Nexus specialises in providing access to over 550,000 vehicles, including 100,000 specialist and commercial vehicles, across 2,000 UK locations, via an unrivalled network of suppliers.
David Brennan, CEO at Nexus Vehicle Rental, said: “Over the last 18 months we have seen increased demand for our service from HGV customers. We have responded to that demand by building a dedicated HGV system, enabling HGV rentals to be managed alongside cars and vans, and we are incredibly excited to finally bring this offering to the market.
“Our unique single source platform will make life easier for transport managers who will now be able to manage all of their rentals conveniently, efficiently and compliantly through one portal. The ability to tick all vehicle and driver compliance boxes in one place allows transport managers to operate with greater peace of mind and reduced paperwork.”
Nexus was recently recognised in the 2017 Best Business Awards, winning both the Best Innovation and Best Customer Focus awards.
