LeasePlan Corp. N.V. has grown its fleet to 1.5 million vehicles worldwide, compared to the 1.3 million vehicles managed by the Dutch company in 2010. This is an 8% year-over-year increase in the number of vehicles managed, which numbered 1.40 million at the end of September 2014. LeasePlan Corp. N.V. operates in 32 countries.
"We want to continue to be market leaders in all that we do: in customer service, in product innovation and in the driver mobility solutions we offer," said Nick Salkeld, chief commercial officer at LeasePlan. "And, we are not complacent. We will continue with our drive for growth, for customer service excellence and our commitment to lead the market in making the lives of our customers easier."
LeasePlan's local operating companies provide fleet management and mobility services to a wide variety of clients, ranging from large corporations and public-sector entities to small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and individual drivers, according to the company.
In recent years, LeasePlan said it has increasingly focused on delivering new, innovative service offerings for SMEs. As a result, SME has become LeasePlan’s fastest-growing client segment, reaching double digit growth, up 11% year-on-year, fuelling the expansion of the company’s global fleet.
Large international clients remain an important segment, served by LeasePlan International. This business has too expanded, with 8% growth year-on-year. Furthermore, the growth of LeasePlan's worldwide fleet is also due to its strong corporate client base, which has grown 6% globally compared to the same time in 2014.
