Lavendon Group Plc: Improve Transport Efficiency

Lavendon Group Plc is the largest rental provider of powered access equipment in Europe and the Middle East.

A key part of the operation is the collection and delivery of powered access equipment, ranging from small scissor lifts to large self propelled ‘cherry pickers’.

Our logistics consultancy was first appointed to review their business model in Germany.

More recently, we have provided specialist advice and support on how Lavendon can improve the efficiency of transport operations, undertaken by an in-house fleet of circa 124 vehicles and over 70 contractors. 

We accurately modelled transport operations in the UK and Germany to determine the optimum number of owned vehicles for each hire depot.

Following an analysis of cost savings a programme was implemented to reduce fuel consumption and improve transport purchasing.

Finally, we made recommendations for improvements to Lavendon’s management information system measures.
