100,000 vehicles: Milestone in record time

December 6, 2022

After a successful past year, Arval Germany is also determinedly pursuing its previous growth course in 2022. With the Arval Beyond strategic plan as the cornerstone and new partnerships, the company is now continuing its success story and will now reach the next milestone in the company’s history with 100,000 vehicles.

Fleet size reaches six figures for the first time

Arval Germany reaches a fleet size of 100,000 vehicles for the first time in the company’s history, 19 per cent of them with electrified powertrains. The latest milestone is the result of a steady development of the portfolio of offerings and thus a further step within the transformation of the business model towards a sustainable mobility provider. A success that can be attributed to the outstanding quality of Arval Germany’s services, its ability to react quickly and seize new opportunities, the resilience of its business model and the stability of the BNP Paribas Group.

“Only last year, we reached a milestone in the history of Arval Germany with 90,000 vehicles in our inventory. Now, less than twelve months later, we have reached the target of 100,000 vehicles, which fills me with pride. This success is due to the extraordinary performance of the entire team, which is working unwaveringly to drive our growth plan forward.”

New partnerships and comprehensive advice

One key to success is the extensive network of partners, which is constantly being expanded. Partnerships have always been firmly anchored in Arval’s DNA, also in Germany. In order to always be able to offer its customers entrepreneurially sensible and economical solutions, Arval is constantly expanding its services in collaboration with its cooperation partners.

“Of course, we would also like to thank our customers, who lay the foundation for the success story of Arval Deutschland and also our partners, who have also contributed to reaching this milestone in our company history. Cooperations and a well-developed network of partners have been a part of Arval Germany from the very beginning. We are therefore all the more pleased that numerous companies see Arval as a strong alliance partner as an internationally operating company, with BNP Paribas as the parent company in the background.”

In addition to the portfolio of vehicles, Arval Germany is also expanding its advisory services. With the advisory approaches of the SMaRT analysis (Sustainable Mobility and Responsibility Targets) and the REV programme (Road to Electrification Programme), Arval Germany succeeds in providing individual advice along the demands and needs of customers to identify customised offers around the economic use of electric vehicles in the fleet.

Finally, with Arval for Employee, Arval Germany offers its customers new ways to keep their employees mobile. On the one hand, this includes leasing models through which people without a company car entitlement can also obtain a vehicle at special conditions within the framework of gross salary conversion or private leasing. In cooperation with the partner network of Arval Germany, the offer is also supplemented by (e-)bike leasing and an mobility app. Via the Arval Journey app, companies can give their employees access to services such as flexible short and long-term rental, car sharing, e-scooter rental and ridehailing.

Arval Beyond: Cornerstone for transformation

For more than 30 years, Arval has supported its customers with comprehensive expertise and has thus developed into a leading provider of full-service leasing and sustainable mobility solutions. With its ambitious strategic plan Arval Beyond, the company has laid the foundation for the comprehensive transformation of its business model in 2020. In doing so, Arval is pursuing ambitious goals – especially in electromobility: the company wants to put 700,000 leased electrified vehicles on the roads worldwide by 2025.

A strategy that is paying off, as Arval again recorded significant growth in all business segments in 2022. The Retail segment stands out with particularly strong growth.

The journey continues

In the future, Arval Germany will, among other things, push the topic of digitalisation and, in addition to the transformation of its own company, will also focus on the constant further development of the fleet management offering for its customers. This also includes the possibilities in relation to connected cars and networked data, as these are becoming increasingly important for efficient and sustainable fleet management. Last but not least, CSR commitment will continue to play a significant role at Arval Germany. Here, the company is fully aligned with the strategy of its parent company BNP Paribas and is placing its CSR efforts on four pillars: Economy, Employees, Society and Environment.

In this way, despite the successes already achieved, Arval Germany continues to work towards meeting the targets set out in the Arval Beyond strategic plan by 2025.

“It is a great honour for me to be able to lead a company like Arval Deutschland GmbH,” Valy concludes. “In the future, we will continue to focus on achieving the goals defined in Arval Beyond and to grow further as a sustainable mobility provider in an effort to play a central role in the field of electric mobility and sustainable mobility solutions.”
