Hailservices has undertaken a new partnership with Ibis Hotels in a bid to use and regenerate the Swift Cycle Works. This partnership will see Hailservices operating from the site as a micro hub to support its Inner City Taxi, delivery, and tourist services.
Keith Higham, Director of Hailservices, commented: “This represents real intent for the city to welcome emission free vehicles to combat congestion & pollution & we would like to thank IBIS Coventry for having the foresight and trust in allowing us to work from the Swift Cycle Works and the Coventry BID team who we were able to reach out to in helping us find this solution through their partnership with the City Centre business community.”
Jade Jones, Sales Manager, ibis Coventry Centre, said: “We are delighted to see our Swift Cycle Works being regenerated for the use of Hailservices for this exciting new, eco-friendly business in time for the City of Culture 2021. The partnership supports Accor’s Planet 21 sustainable development program priorities to innovate with partners and work with local communities and we are looking forward to a successful future for Hailservices and ibis Coventry Centre.”
Trish Willetts, Director at Coventry BID, said: “It was great to hear that the connection between Hailservices and the Ibis team had been facilitated with the help of one of our BID Bites newsletters – especially as something so exciting has come out of it! We are incredibly proud of all our businesses and always keen to support in any way that we can. Hailservices is an important element of our great city’s toolbox of recovery and we can’t wait to see where their success takes them next!”
The benefits of this new partnership include.
- Central location in line with its last mile operating policy
- Increased awareness of both brands and their mutual objectives
- Regeneration of an iconic building in time for The City of Culture 2021
