Fleet leasing company Arval and mobility services provider Sixt have concluded a strategic partnership that will allow Arval to offer the employees of their corporate clients and partner companies access to Sixt products and its network.
The new agreement allows for collaboration in all their geographies, beginning with Germany, France, the Netherlands, U.K., and Belgium, according to the companies. Arval’s new mobility offering will include its long- and mid-term rental products as well as Sixt’s products in a local as well as international dimension via Arval´s proprietary online and mobile channels.
“In Sixt we see a solid group with a unique digital offer, and they stand out for the excellence of their offers and innovations. Leveraging on our respective strengths, we will be able to develop our businesses, and offer our clients a comprehensive range of services for the years to come in our key markets in Europe,” said Alain Van Groenendael, Arval Chairman & CEO.
Sixt will serve as one of the preferred suppliers for Arval’s replacement business as part of the agreement. In the future, joint clients will benefit from the complementary services of both companies.
"Arval and Sixt are convinced that the future of mobility lies in offering our clients a broad range of mobility options, rather than just one single product,” said Konstantin Sixt, chief sales officer at Sixt SE. “SixtT sees the current crisis as an opportunity to set the course to emerge from it even stronger. This includes strong partnerships, and this is why we are really happy to enter into this new relationship with Arval.”
The demand for individual and flexible mobility is continuously increasing, according to the companies. In order to exploit the growth potential in this market, strong partnerships - alongside internationalization and the digitization of business - are a decisive factor for future success.
The partnership is planned to be operationally launched in early 2021.
