Arval Group has launched a set of new mobility services, which will initially only be available in some European countries.
After having been successfully launched in the Netherlands, the Arval Mobility App is now available in France and Germany. The Arval Mobility Hub is also launching in France.
The services are then set to roll out progressively in the rest of Europe.
The leasing giant says that Arval UK will benefit from insight drawn from across Europe to enhance its own future mobility customer proposition.
The new offering is part of the strategic plan Arval Beyond recently launched with one main ambition: to become a leading player in sustainable mobility through the rollout of its 360° Mobility offer.
Building on that, the new threefold approach includes:
- The Arval Mobility Hub, which gathers shared mobility options – including: car, bike, scooter and micro-mobility solutions – available at Arval corporate clients’ premises, to make them easily accessible to all employees.
- The Arval Mobility App, which enables employees to choose the most suitable mobility option for their journey, at the tap of a finger.
- Arval Mobility Consulting, a dedicated option designed by Arval Consulting to support its clients in setting up and putting in place their new mobility policies.
Alain van Groenendael, Arval chairman and CEO, said: "Companies know that their future in terms of employees’ mobility lies in being able to offer to all of them – and not only to those eligible for company cars – a set of mobility options for their professional and also their personal use.
“At Arval, one of our missions is to make this future a reality. We offer a complete range of mobility services integrated in one single app, along with the public transport options available locally.
“To go even further, and with the support of Arval Mobility Consulting, we will offer our clients end-to-end support to implement their new multifaceted mobility policy.”
Companies have clearly identified needs in terms of mobility policy. According to the latest edition of the Arval Mobility Observatory barometer, 74% of companies in Europe have already implemented or plan to implement at least one alternative mobility solution for their employees within the next three years.
In doing so, they want to reduce their ecological footprint, increase their attractiveness as an employer, and reduce costs.
