Lyreco, the renowned global office and work solutions provider engaged ERA to carry out a complete review of their UK car fleet and associated costs.

Following an extensive review of all policies and procedures, together with a manufacturer and leasing company tender, Lyreco chose to implement a number of initiatives that were proposed and managed by ERA Fleet Cost Management. The results have delivered a significant 6 figure cost reduction, numerous operational efficiencies and moreover improved car specification for the 500+ company car drivers.

Following the success of the car fleet project, ERA then reviewed the commercial vehicle fleet at Lyreco which is delivering equally impressive results.

“ERA has worked alongside the Lyreco Fleet Team adding strategic value to produce outstanding results that we wouldn’t have achieved on our own. The industry knowledge, market transparency and leverage of the ERA Fleet Management Team lead by Sean Bingham is where I believe they have made a real difference.  In addition to this, their ongoing proactive audit process ensures that pricing/processes remain competitive and efficient, which has resulted in further additional savings.”

“At first I was a little sceptical, but I was soon assured by the way that ERA Fleet Cost Management manage their projects. After going through the process we’re now in a much better position with many benefits other than just the reduction in cost, and we see them very much as part of our Fleet Team.”
