TÜV SÜD Group streamlines fleet consultancy division
TÜV SÜD Group has reorganised its fleet consultancy division by amalgamating the legal entities behind the TCOPlus and FleetVision brands into the Fleet Logistics Group.
The company said the move, effective as of 31 July, sees both the TCOPlus and FleetVision brands continue to exist within the new business line, along with associated tools such as GreenCube and FleetCube, but without separate legal entities, leading to improvements in time to market and innovation competence.
The resultant consultancy business line is headed by director of fleet and mobility consultancy, Thibault Alleyn, and will remain operationally separate from the outsourced fleet management services that Fleet Logistics provides, working with separate IT systems and databases to ensure independence in accordance with the wishes of leasing companies and clients.
The move follows the May 2015 acquisition of TCOPlus and its sister company, FleetVision, by TÜV SÜD Group, with the former owners having remained with the business as managing directors but due to now step down and formally leave the business by mutual agreement by 1 October 2017.
Both consultancy and fleet management business lines will continue to report into chief executive officer, Dr Jörg Löffler, who said: “Customers of both TCOPlus and FleetVision will not notice any discernible difference in the high quality of services that they will continue to receive, nor changes in the independence of recommendations and deliverables.
He added: “We are convinced that this new structure is the best option to take the business forward.”
