ALD Automotive and its North American partner Wheels have formed a strategic partnership with Australian based company FleetPartners.
The alliance with FleetPartners provides ALD Automotive with crucial local support for its large international clients with operations in the emerging Asia-Pacific region.
FleetPartners has more than 60,000 vehicles under management in Australia and New Zealand and the agreement with ALD Automotive and Wheels will take the consolidated fleet of the three partners to 1.3 million vehicles in 43 countries.
The new alliance will allow the combined group to tackle opportunities as one, providing clients with greater control and visibility over their fleet, cost management benefits and value-add of local expertise. Australia and New Zealand are important markets for many of ALD Automotive’s and Wheels’ largest clients, who will now benefit from the most comprehensive solution possible and the quality and customer service focus of FleetPartners, that perfectly matches ALD and Wheels core values.
This strategic initiative does not involve any asset purchase or share transfer between the partners.
