FMG secures ‘significant’ contract with Leeds-based supermarket chain Asda

Have your say

YORKSHIRE-based FMG has been awarded a “significant” contract to manage around 900 vehicles from supermarket chain Asda’s home shopping operations.

The vehicles, which operate out of locations across the South of England, represent around 50 per cent of the Leeds-based retailer’s home shopping fleet. The contract includes maintenance, breakdown, operational and accident repairs services as well as the provision of fleet intelligence.

Kevin Gordon, the client development director at Huddersfield-based incident management specialist FMG, said: “We fundamentally understand how important working vehicles are to our clients’ businesses, and we fully appreciate how essential it is to meet and exceed their expectations. We’re absolutely delighted to have been awarded this contract which will see us work with one of Britain’s biggest retailers.”

FMG has 350 staff, and recorded a turnover of £85m in 2012. It has a portfolio of long-standing blue chip customers.

It works with major logistics providers like DHL, the Highways Agency, a number of police constabularies, and insurance companies, to reduce the costs and delays linked to problems with vehicles.

The company’s smart technology system, Ingenium Dynamics, helps to reduce accidents by making it easier to monitor motorists’ behaviour.
