STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN – BCA, the UK-headquartered auction chain, will start operating in Sweden during the first quarter of 2005. BCA Sweden has formed a partnership with LeasePlan to exclusively manage and deliver a full package of remarketing processes for the leasing company, according to the Web site,

Vehicles will be collected from the leasing customer and delivered to one of two logistics centres. Vehicles will be inspected, prepared and refurbished to retail standard, before being imaged and remarketed via LeasePlan’s CarNext Direct website which is operated by BCA.

BCA and LeasePlan work closely in a number of European marketplaces, including a well-established remarketing platform in Denmark that was used as the business model for the partnership in Sweden.
