Earlier this year Manheim was selected as Nissan Motor Australia’s (Nissan) exclusive partner to manage their complete Company Vehicle Operations & Remarketing process.
Under this new agreement, Manheim provide a complete end-to-end solution including the logistical and operational requirements for Company Fleet assets including vehicle ordering, registration, employee handover, in-fleet management, de-fleeting, grounding inspections, vehicle rectification, detailing, vehicle imagery, online auctions, sale management and administration, all to Nissan standards.
Manheim’s experience in remarketing and vehicle services for OEM’s, both locally and globally, their pro-active account management, competitive pricing and the deeper capability that results from being part of Cox Automotive, were all key factors in Nissan’s decision to move their complete Company Fleet Management to Manheim.
Manheim’s CEO, Charles Cumming said, “We have had a long and successful partnership with Nissan and their retailers in providing remarketing services for their Company Fleet. They approached us to tender for the opportunity to extend this relationship to include the whole process from initial order which would not only deliver improved process and efficiencies but also reduce operating costs and deliver improved sales results”.
After 6 months of operation Manheim have delivered on their commitment with improved processes, increased efficiencies and outstanding feedback from Nissan employees. Charles Cumming continued to say “We have delivered a complete transition plan for Nissan to the new solution and delivered all requirements either ahead of or on schedule. This includes new software solutions, a fully documented standard operating procedures and a dedicated and fully trained team onsite at Nissan HQ along with our other Manheim locations delivering vehicle handovers to Nissan staff at regional locations”.
