Positive Signs for 2014 as ‘Fragile Recovery’ Continues, says Marshall Leasing MD

The fleet industry has faced difficult times over recent years, but as 2013 draws to a close there are signs that confidence is on the up.

Recent analysis of over 200 businesses by Marshall Leasing revealed a considerable mix of departments taking responsibility for company cars. Finance was most prominent, with 27% of businesses handing... Read full article
