A few years ago, Arval Belgium changed its business model from long-term car leasing to the provision of sustainable mobility solutions in the Arval Beyond 2020-2025. Now that we are halfway through the strategic plan, Arval Belgium is particularly proud to be the first Belgian leasing company to reach the milestone of the 100.000th vehicle in our fleet.
Cars are still the means of transport most used in Belgium and continue to play an important role in this sustainable shift. Both the number and percentage of vehicles without an internal combustion engine will only increase in the coming years.
Arval Belgium is also on the right track with regard to the broader mobility concept. The leasing company has now become a trusted multi-mobility partner for many companies in Belgium. Year after year, car sharing, bicycle leasing and other innovative and flexible mobility solutions are becoming more and more important.
Dan Boiangiu, general manager of Arval Belgium since March 2023, describes this trend as follows: "Being the first Belgian leasing company to reach a fleet of 100.000 cars is another step in Arval Belgium’s growth. It is the result of strong teamwork and our strong commitment to adapt and offer solutions that meet the evolving needs of our customers and the market. We could never have achieved this milestone and the shift to multimodal transportation without the trust of our customers and partners."
Arval specialises in operational vehicle leasing and new mobility solutions, with almost 1.6 million vehicles leased by the end of December 2022. More than 8.000 employees in 29 countries do their utmost every day to make the journeys of all our customers as seamless and sustainable as possible, whether they are large international companies, small businesses, or private individuals.
