Fleet Logistics Expands into Turkey

Fleet Logis­tics, Europe’s largest inde­pen­dent fleet man­age­ment provider, has con­tin­ued its expan­sion across main­land Europe and the Near East with the open­ing of new fleet man­age­ment oper­a­tions in Turkey to ser­vice new and exist­ing fleet cus­tomers.

“The open­ing of our first oper­a­tions in Turkey puts more pieces in the Fleet Logis­tics’ jig­saw of main­land Europe and the Near East. In Turkey, we see anoth­er exam­ple of us work­ing with the exist­ing TÜV SÜD net­work and infra­struc­ture in the coun­try so that we are com­plete­ly inte­grat­ed with­in the oper­a­tions of the par­ent com­pa­ny,” said Fleet Logis­tics Chief Exec­u­tive Offi­cer, Rain­er Laber.

In Turkey, the new Fleet Logis­tics ven­ture is in the cap­i­tal Istan­bull, based at the local head­quar­ters of its par­ent com­pa­ny, TÜV SÜD, which has a long and estab­lished pres­ence in the coun­try where it is mar­ket leader in peri­od­ic inspec­tions and acci­dent man­age­ment.

Turkey, which has a pop­u­la­tion of some 79m, has around two mil­lion com­pa­ny cars with around 160,000 on oper­at­ing leas­es.
Fleet Logis­tics, which has a fleet of 131,000 vehi­cles under con­tract, already has around 20 inter­na­tion­al cus­tomers who oper­ate vehi­cle fleets in Turkey.
The move into Turkey is in response to the requests of fleet clients with exist­ing busi­ness­es in the region and fleets of com­pa­ny cars but no sup­port­ing fleet man­age­ment struc­ture to facil­i­tate them.
The ini­tial devel­op­ment work is led by Busi­ness Devel­op­ment Direc­tor, Mar­cus Hen­necke, and the FLI Busi­ness Devel­op­ment team until they can hand over to the region­al FLI orga­ni­za­tion, once sta­ble oper­a­tions are estab­lished.
• The Local Busi­ness Devel­op­ment Man­ag­er for Turkey, Yves Hel­ven, is cur­rent­ly imple­ment­ing the first Turk­ish cus­tomers and mak­ing sure that the office and its staff are ready to go live from the begin­ning of Sep­tem­ber.
Fleet Logis­tics is the only major fleet man­age­ment com­pa­ny with a com­plete pres­ence through­out Europe and a grow­ing influ­ence in the Near East, where it offers fleet cus­tomers a wide array of ben­e­fits, includ­ing a con­sis­tent stan­dard­ized approach, glob­al report­ing and a cus­tomized IT offer­ing in all coun­tries.
Many of Fleet Logis­tics’ acclaimed suite of tech­nol­o­gy solu­tions, such as Fleet.Net, its stan­dard oper­at­ing plat­form, while the Fleet.Online dri­ver por­tal is avail­able in all lan­guages.
Fleet.Order and Fleet.Wizard, for online vehi­cle selec­tion and order­ing, are expect­ed to be uni­ver­sal­ly avail­able from the third quar­ter of this year, while the com­pa­ny is cur­rent­ly work­ing hard to bring a new dri­ver app to mar­ket.

“We do have oth­er coun­tries in mind for fur­ther expan­sion, but all we can say at this stage is ‘watch this space’,” said Rain­er Laber. “These are in new regions for us and more details will be made avail­able soon,” he added.
