NETWORK RAIL has awarded a £136 million contract to Hitachi Capital Vehicle Solutions to provide integrated road fleet management services.

The four-year contract will run from 1 August 2019 to 31 July 2023, with the option of a one-year extension. Under the deal Hitachi Capital will oversee the management of NR’s entire owned and leased road fleet, as well as sourcing and supplying lease vehicles, rather than NR managing 16 separate road fleet contracts. The deal also sees NR’s road fleet transitioning from an owned to a leased model.
