ARI, Sourcewell ink fleet management services contract

MOUNT LAUREL, NJ—Fleet services provider ARI has been awarded a contract from Sourcewell, a national cooperative purchasing organization serving more than 50,000 government, education and nonprofit entities across North America.

Through the agreement, Sourcewell member agencies are able to streamline the procurement of ARI’s fleet leasing and management services, reducing the time, cost, and administrative burden typically associated with the traditional bid solicitation process.

“For many of Sourcewell’s members, the vehicles in their fleet are much more than just cars and trucks; they are indispensable tools that allow their employees to provide essential services to constituents,” said Anthony Foursha, senior vice-president, sales, ARI. “We are extremely proud of the relationship we’ve established with Sourcewell and its members. We look forward to building upon this partnership and continuing to support the public sector clients who view ARI as a trusted advisor and extension of their organization.”

ARI provides fleet leasing and management services to more than 160 public organizations, consisting of approximately 80,000 vehicles. Through its partnership with Sourcewell, ARI offers member agencies government-centric solutions that help fleets in this sector better control operating expenses and improve efficiency.

“I’m really excited about this category and the value it offers our members,” said Sourcewell contract administrator Andy Campbell. “ARI’s comprehensive leasing and fleet management services are poised to deliver solutions that will transform our members’ fleet operations. Regardless of the vehicle type or fleet size, there’s a program available to meet the needs of all members.”

Sourcewell contracts are awarded on behalf of its current and potential government and education member agencies following a competitive, nationwide solicitation. Purchasing via a Sourcewell contract simplifies the procurement process by offering both lease and financing options for all vehicle types as well as a full-range of fleet management services, the company said. Contracts are available to all member agencies throughout the US and Canada.
