Telkom may have to give back 6,000 maintenance vans which its field technicians use if a North Gauteng High Court case goes against the company. This is according to the Sunday Times.
The newspaper reported that Telkom’s fleet management has been handled by Daimler Fleet Management since 2000. This changed in 2015 when the contract was taken over by the fleet division of Bidvest.
Daimler has now asked Telkom to hand back its vehicles through a court application, but Telkom said “the notion that the actual vehicles would not be included in the lead out period is illogical”.
Judgement in the case is expected on 24 April.
