Pudsey-based Nexus Vehicle Rental, a tech-driven mobility provider, has secured a new three-year contract as sole rental fleet supplier to national health and social care transport company ERS Medical.

ERS Medical has been a direct customer of Nexus since August 2017 and has extended its agreement until 2024 with a renewed multi-site, multi-rental contract providing light commercial vehicles to boost its 500-strong vehicle fleet.

Employing over 1,000 staff, ERS Medical provides health and social care transport services to the healthcare sector.

As it works with customers from public and private sectors including the NHS and private healthcare organisations, it needs to scale its fleet continually, according to the demand facing its customers at any given time.

Nexus has a supply chain of 550,000 vehicles sourced from over 2,000 locations, meaning it can provide ERS Medical with a guaranteed supply of long-term vehicles.

Nexus connects customers to vehicles through its rental booking and management platform – IRIS.

David Brennan, CEO at Nexus Vehicle Rental, said: “Without a doubt, the last 12 months have been difficult for many sectors.

“But we are proud to have supported our key worker customers in the medical industry by keeping them moving throughout the challenges of the pandemic; helping them scale their fleets, facilitate social distancing and – in the case of ERS Medical – support the NHS’ Covid-19 response.

“We have worked with ERS Medical for four years now and look forward to continuing to support their fleet mobility needs throughout the next three years.”

Jeroen van Os, finance director at ERS Medical, said: “Renewing our contract with Nexus was a no-brainer for us because having the flexibility to scale our fleet up and down is crucial due to the ever-changing landscape of the healthcare and medical sector.

“Nexus ensures we are able to support our NHS clients in every corner of the UK.”
