Nexus Vehicle Rental, the corporate vehicle rental provider, has been recognised as one of the top ecommerce companies in the North.

The ‘Top 100 eCommerce Companies in the North’ report has been compiled by Prolific North with Nexus listed in the top 30 companies, recognised for its fast growth alongside giants of the ecommerce and automotive industry including MoneySuperMarket, Autotrader and The Car Buying Group.

Based near Leeds, Nexus specialises in providing access to over 550,000 vehicles, including 150,000 specialist and commercial vehicles, across 2,000 UK locations.

Earlier this year Nexus expanded into the HGV market, becoming the first provider to offer a UK wide HGV rental solution alongside cars and vans through a single source platform.

David Brennan, CEO at Nexus Vehicle Rental, said: “We’re proud to be part of a group of businesses in the North and indeed across the UK focused on growth through innovation, disrupting their sectors by moving services online.

“Our inclusion in the Top 100 ranking cements our reputation as a leader in the tech sector and the rental industry.”

The UK is the global leader of the digital world, topping the e-government development and e-participation indexes according to the 2016 United Nations E-Government Survey.

The digital industry in the UK currently contributes 12.5% of total GDP and the ecommerce sector is set to double in size to £645 billion by 2018 according to Prolific North.
