BCA acquires United Fleet Distribution

BCA has acquired United Fleet Distribution from business support firm Mears Group PLC, aiming to enhance logistics and inspection services for its fleet and leasing customers.

Birmingham-based UFD will remain as a stand-alone business as part of BCA’s remarketing division, providing a range of logistics services including inspection, collection and delivery, storage and ancillary services.

AM understands UFD will retain its existing clients following the acquisition, including Lombard, Lex, BT Fleet, Thrifty car rental (part of Scot Group) and ECM Mercedes Corporate.

BCA will also gain the company’s IT systems, including the Manpack 3 tracking, reporting and incident management software.

BCA chief executive Jon Olsen said: “EFD is a great fit with our existing business and gives us scope to enhance the range and levels of service we offer to companies operating within the motor industry.

“In particular, it will enable us to enhance our Inspect and Collect service to our fleet and leasing clients.”
