The British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association (BVRLA) is partnering with APD Global Research, Auto Trader and Cap HPI to provide market data and trend analysis for its members.

Experts will be working with the BVRLA throughout 2021. This will include webinars and forum participations, contributing to reports and research and sharing perspectives via the association’s dedicated Industry Insight web channel.

BVRLA chief executive, Gerry Keaney says: “The pace of change is astonishing, companies are looking for up-to-date information and actionable insights that can help them make the right decisions and plan for the future.

“Collaboration is key and we are delighted to be working with these partners in providing BVRLA members with the information they need”.

APD, which has a strong focus on customer engagement and feedback, will assist BVRLA with its insight on the impact and opportunities for members of changing expectations within fleets and drivers.

“A collaborative approach has never been more important than in these challenging times. We see supporting the BVRLA's role and providing actionable research for members as our small contribution to the industry,” says APD executive chairman, Paul Turner.

Auto Trader will be able to track numerous metrics and trends, including the levels of supply and demand in the market. It will also consider fluctuations in used car prices, based on daily pricing analysis of circa 900,000 vehicles.

Cap HPI will be sharing insight and data from its range of current and forecast valuations, alongside advice from its industry experts.
