TraXall International expands into Turkey and Greece
Cross-border fleet and mobility management specialist TraXall International has expanded into Turkey and Greece under a tie-up with Turkish fleet management provider Pfilo.
Istanbul-based Pfilo manages a portfolio of 17,000 vehicles across the two countries for blue-chip multinational clients such as HSBC, Ericsson, Johnson & Johnson and Pfizer.
Formed in 2007, the company has grown to become Turkey’s largest fleet management specialist, with services including vehicle procurement, leasing and maintenance, fuel and CO2 management, sustainability consultancy, company car policy development, accident management and driver risk profiling.
The business is a specialist in driving down customers’ fleet costs, as well as optimising efficiency via a bespoke driver app and in-depth management reporting.
Pfilo will now trade as TraXall Turkey – increasing TraXall’s presence to 30 countries across Europe and Latin America.
Leomont Wouda, TraXall’s international business development director, commented: “TraXall has built an enviable reputation for understanding the complex cross-border needs of international fleet operators and already looks after the fleets of some of the world’s largest pharmaceutical giants, so the client commonalities and synergies with Pfilo were obvious.
“Pfilo also fits the TraXall model of total independence from leasing companies, allowing us to offer genuinely impartial and unbiased advice on the best fleet solutions on the market to our clients.
“Mobility, sustainability and connectivity remain watchwords for the global fleet industry and Pfilo is ideally placed to help us deliver all three across Turkey and Greece.”
TraXall International CEO Ross Jackson said the partnership with Pfilo would provide TraXall with in-adepth local knowledge.
“Located at the crossroads of Asia and Europe, Turkey is a key market for us, currently showing keen growth potential and a marked increase in demand from global clients.
“The latest move will give us deep local knowledge of the Turkish and Greek markets and inform globally co-ordinated client strategies, supporting the ‘local management, global view’ approach which has been so pivotal to TraXall’s success.”
