We Work Together

WLTP Challenge 2019 Associate Partners are working at the forefront of their respective industries, from leasing and fleet management services to telematics and recovery services, delivering connected business mobility solutions. Each provides products and specialised services to optimise fleet fuel efficiency and ultimately save companies time and money.

ALD Automotive is the leading vehicle leasing operation in Europe managing over 1.51 million vehicles across 43 countries worldwide. Within the UK, ALD finance and manage over 135,000 vehicles providing customers with total fleet management flexibility from pure financing of cars and vans to comprehensive outsourcing operations.

Established in the UK in 1958, ALD has experience in providing vehicle funding and ancillary support services within both corporate and consumer markets. ALD is widely recognised as one of the industry’s leading service providers, with a proven portfolio of innovative, award-winning products for major PLCs, small businesses and individual drivers alike.

Airmax is at the forefront of UK telematics technologies and has been since 2004. We know a thing or two about maximising your fleet potential. Specialising in providing integrated, telematics services to Corporate Fleets and White Label Solutions to the Leasing and Contract Hire Sectors. Integrated with Ebbon Dacs Leaselink, we are able to provide seamless delivery of services throughout the dealer network prior to vehicle delivery.

But what is telematics? It is a black box device installed in a vehicle, whereby we utilise the OBD port to collect and generate vehicle specific data from the vehicle CANBus, providing an insight led approach to reporting. By creating visibility of field assets, we achieve expected residual values and compliment existing SMR and FNOL processes. Once installed, we create customisable value added services to fleets, such as driver behaviour, driver and vehicle performance, Vehicle Track & Trace and mileage capture for HMRC compliance, all accessible through a central, configurable application.

The RAC has been around since 1897, and now has more than 8 million members, helping business as well as private motorists.

With headquarters in Birmingham and approximately 4,000 staff, the RAC operates from three bases. We offer vehicle and breakdown services through a nationwide, branded patrol force, focusing mainly on vehicle repair and recovery.

We use what we believe is one of the world’s most advanced computer systems for handling roadside assistance calls. But we’re about more than helping people at the roadside. From insurance and vehicle inspections to legal services and real-time driving data, the RAC offers a solution for every motoring need.
