UK: According to a recent news, Kia Motors and Carillion Fleet Management has signed up to the BVRLA’s free-to-use ReCare safety recall system, joining manufacturers Ford and Volvo and five fleet operators – ALD Automotive, Alphabet, Arval, LeasePlan, Lex Autolease and Tusker – in participating in the safety recall system, which has been developed for the BVRLA by Oxford-based online solutions provider, Ebbon-Dacs.
Kevin Todd, national service and quality manager, Kia Motors, said: “ReCare is an excellent platform through which to contact our growing fleet customer base with the latest recall information.”
Doug Randell, head of fleet, Carillion Fleet Management, said: “We are delighted to give our backing to the ReCare scheme. The system also allows us to continue our excellent working relationship with Allfleet Services who currently handle all our recall communications.”
Welcoming the news that more manufacturers and fleet operators had signed up to the scheme, BVRLA chief executive John Lewis said: “Obviously, we would still like to see more vehicle manufactures sign up to ReCare as soon as possible. The system becomes increasingly viable and relevant once we achieve critical mass.
Lewis added: “The system has the potential to deliver huge duty of care and road safety benefits to the fleet management sector and to significantly reduce the administrative burden faced by manufacturers trying to notify recalls to thousands of different fleet owners.”
