Rivus partners with CPL to provide support for access equipment

Rivus Fleet Solutions and Cumberland Platforms Limited (CPL) have formed a partnership to provide a service infrastructure network for owners of CPL’s cherry-picker equipment.

The agreement means that all 55 garages in Rivus’ UK-wide network will be equipped to provide in-life servicing, maintenance, repair and testing for any CPL product.

The garages will be supplied with CPL diagnostic and tooling equipment, together with having full access to supply chains for parts – meaning that any owners of CPL equipment will be able to use the Rivus network for both warranty and non-warranty work.

Simon Ungless, business development director at Rivus, said: “Businesses that run fleets not only want fast local access to facilities which support their base vehicles, but they also want the same standards for their ancillaries.

“Rivus is hugely experienced in supporting manufacturer warranties through multi-skilled technicians at every site – teams that also have vast experience in working with on-board equipment such as cherry-pickers.

“Through our national footprint, technical capability and capacity, we can provide users of CPL equipment with great service at locations which are convenient to them.”

Rivus technicians will undergo comprehensive training and testing to ensure customers receive CPL-standard levels of support.

Rivus’ says its recent move to equip their garages for electric vehicles (EVs) adds further value to the partnership.

Paul Murphy, managing director at Cumberland Platforms Limited, said: "We know Rivus has the scale and infrastructure to support our customers and the volume of our equipment that’s in the field, so this is great news for customers of both companies.”

Virtual Fleet & Mobility Live 2020: The virtual fleet expo

Video: Fleet News editor-in-chief Stephen Briers and events director Chris Lester introduce the 2020 virtual event and give a preview of what it will look like.

The annual event was due to take place at the NEC, Birmingham on October 6-7 but as a result of the ongoing impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, and after consultation with the visitor advisory board, Fleet News has taken the decision to hold an online event in November instead.

Among the exclusive features at the virtual event will be a special EV & Hybrid Showroom which will bring to life the latest electric models with interactive displays that will enable you to get up close to the UK’s best fleet suppliers.

Visitors and exhibitors will be able to communicate through live chat, participate in live Q&As, ‘visit’ branded booths, and find out about industry-leading technology solutions.

The decision to go virtual was made easier by the fact that around 40% of fleets already have, or expect to shortly have, a company travel ban that would prevent them from attending live events this year, while a similar proportion did not anticipate attending live events until sometime in 2021.
