New outsource service will offer online hire management to staff

HSS Hire has won a contract to be the sole supplier of tools to British Waterways for the maintenance of Britain’s canals and rivers in a multi-million pound deal.

HSS’ new outsource service will maintain all tools held on long-term hire and offer an online service for British Waterways’ staff to manage the hire and return of tools.

Rob Williams, senior procurement manager at British Waterways, said: “We are constantly reviewing the way we work to bring more efficiency and economy into our contracts while ensuring that health and safety and compliance legislation are not compromised so we’re really pleased at the benefits the HSS Outsource service offers us when it comes to managing our equipment obligations and costs.”
