Fleet Logistics has announced a strategic partnership in Romania with local fleet management specialist Globexpert.
Based in the capital, Bucharest, the partnership wi;ll provide fleet management services to international customers who have subsidiaries within the country.
Separate pilot projects have already been established for two existing international fleet clients with operating divisions in the country.
The new partnership will be based in the capital, Bucharest, where Globexpert already has offices with nine full time staff, mostly graduates with an average age of 32.
Simon Spremberg, business development director at Fleet Logistics, said the strategic partnership with Globexpert made sound financial and business sense.
"The Romanian car market is small – in 2012 there were 87,505 new registered vehicles, down 20.9% compared to 2011," he said. "And with volumes at lower levels than we would normally find, we could not justify opening new offices in the country.
"This new partnership will allow us to offer our full range of fleet management solutions to existing and new fleet clients via a local expert with considerable experience and expertise in the local fleet environment."
Globexpert currently manages more than 400 vehicles for around 30 national and international clients, generally with small and medium-sized fleets in a variety business sectors, such as IT, distribution, insurance, banking and consultancy.
