Addison Lee has opened a new Fleet Hub at West Drayton, near Heathrow airport.
The purpose-built facility, which replaces a former Addison Lee centre in Hayes, will serve as Addison Lee’s main service centre for its growing fleet of electric vehicles, as well as being the venue for driver training and support.
Tony Smith, Addison Lee’s head of driver experience, said: “The new Fleet Hub is head and shoulders above anything we’ve had in place before. The space we have for driver training is second to none, and it’s great to have it in the same place where vehicle maintenance goes on.”
He added: “Our new Fleet Hub demonstrates our ongoing commitment to having the best drivers in London. Everyone that drives with Addison Lee is interviewed in person and undergoes a full PCO check. We are also investing more time and effort into additional training including a programme developed in tandem with the UN Women UK Safe Spaces programme.” Find out more about this programme here: https://lnkd.in/dR_EaqN3
The Fleet Hub is located just a few miles from Heathrow, and will help provide a space where drivers can rest and recharge between drop-offs and pick-ups, in order to help ensure customers receive the best possible service.
Addison Lee has pledged to switch its entire fleet to electric vehicles by the end of 2023, and will have 450 Volkswagen ID.4 electric cars on its private hire fleet by the end of March 2022.
