Fleet Logistics Reaches 20-Year Milestone
Fleet management provider Fleet Logistics is celebrating 20 years on the international fleet management scene with a series of updates to its operating structure, logo, and website.
The company, which is headquartered at Oberhaching, Munich, alongside parent company, TÜV SÜD AG, is combining with Germany’s Fleet Company GmbH, to create the Fleet Logistics Group. The new enlarged Group will sit alongside sister companies, FleetVision and TCOPlus, within the TÜV SÜD Business Unit Fleet, to provide a unified, joined-up, and holistic approach to global fleet management, according to the company.
Fleet Logistics said it currently has around 180,000 vehicles under contract for around 200 customers in 50 countries throughout the world, with a workforce of 380 employees.
It recently went live in a number of different countries in Latin and Central America from a hub operation in São Paulo, including Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Paraguay, Panama, Guatemala and Mexico.
This latest expansion will join the hub operation Fleet Logistics set up in Singapore in July 2015 to be able to service 12 countries in the Asia Pacific region, including India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam, Malaysia, China, Taiwan, Japan and South Korea.
Jörg Löffler, chief executive officer of the Fleet Logistics Group, said the new developments marked the continued progression of the company towards becoming one truly global brand.
“The year 2016 represents an important landmark in the history of Fleet Logistics as it celebrates its 20th anniversary,” he said. “To mark this very special occasion, we have taken this opportunity to combine two market leading brands: Germany’s leading independent fleet solutions expert, Fleet Company, with Europe’s largest and longest established independent fleet management provider, Fleet Logistics International.”
Löffler said that the new enlarged Group of companies, including fleet consultancy FleetVision, and whole life cost expert, TCOPlus, is now capable of providing international fleet customers with a one-stop shop for all their international fleet management requirements.
“You may be looking for global consulting, industry-leading reporting, forecasting dashboards that can create complete transparency of your fleet, or you may need help in meeting your ‘green’ sustainability goals in time for the important deadline of 2020,” he said. “Or you may simply want to streamline, harmonize or professionalize your fleet and focus on your core business, making it more productive, in which case you need look no further. The TÜV SÜD Business Unit Fleet, comprising of Fleet Logistics Group, FleetVision and TCOPlus, now has the expertise and tools, including the award winning GreenCube solution, to service your fleet from its own offices anywhere around the globe.”
At the same time, Fleet Logistics is also transforming its corporate website to reflect the enlarged operation with a vibrant design to give a new look and feel to the site.
The new-look, newly-designed multilingual site, which features very prominently the mission statement: “we drive our industry” also boasts the company’s new corporate logo.
“Our emphasis over the coming months will be on continued process improvement, greater harmonization of some of our IT systems, and a deeper management focus on developing our relationships with our many international fleet customers, as we continue in our quest ‘to drive our industry’ on a truly global basis,” Löffler added.
