Our Story

However big or complex your fleet, you’ll find the right support with Rivus.

One of the UK’s largest full-service fleet management companies

From practical day-to-day services and an unparalleled UK-wide garage network to knowledgeable teams and strategic support, there’s everything you need to keep your fleet moving and take the strain of a multifaceted operation.

A unique and distinguished heritage

Our fleet services are rooted in over a hundred years of business, starting when we were known as GPO. Back then, our dedicated build engineers worked relentlessly designing and creating bespoke vehicles and equipment using traditional engineering tools.

By the end of the 1960s, the GPO was separated into two companies, one of which was a telecommunications company which is what we now know as BT. BT successfully ran and maintained its own fleet of thousands of vehicles. In 2002, BT Fleet was set up to offer services to other businesses looking for an experienced provider who could manage their fleets.

In 2019, the Aurelius Group saw the potential of BT Fleet and acquired the business, renaming it Rivus Fleet Solutions. ‘Rivus’ means river in Latin, and our new name reflects the comprehensive nature of our fleet management services across all stages of the vehicle life cycle, from the initial source through to the provision of downstream services.

The river is reflected in our commitment to:

Keeping your business moving
Keeping Britain moving
Streamlining your operations
Providing end-to-end solutions


You’ll receive high-quality support whatever your industry sector. Our services are already enjoyed by many of the UK’s biggest and most well-known fleet operators, including in these sectors:
