SantanderCB Fleet Solutions

We’re working with Zenith to provide a market-leading fleet funding and management solution, developed to suit the fleet requirements of any business.

Whether you’re looking to fund light commercial vehicles or a car fleet, we have the right solution for your business. 

The fleet industry is constantly transforming. A growing market for alternatively fuelled vehicles, ever-evolving environmental concerns and frequent changes to legislation has forced many companies to regularly review their fleet operations. The relationship we have with Zenith means that we can give you a solution to meet the changing needs of both the industry and your business. 

Who is Zenith?
Established in 1989, Zenith is one of the UK’s largest independent leasing and fleet management businesses, providing services and support to some of the UK’s biggest brands. Zenith has a strong focus on delivering high-quality customer service and prides itself on its innovative approach to vehicle leasing and management. 

A safe pair of hands
We’ll provide the funding and Zenith will look after all other parts of a fully integrated fleet solution, so your fleet of vehicles really is in safe hands. We’ll work together to provide the right solution for your business. 

How it works
One of our Relationship Directors will come and talk to you about your exact funding needs. They’ll develop an in-depth understanding of your business before recommending the best package to meet your needs, challenges and budget.

Zenith will then work with us to deliver a fully integrated fleet solution including vehicle maintenance, accident and risk management, cash allowance management, rental vehicle solutions and much more.
