13 April 2021 – Cross-border fleet and mobility management specialist TraXall International has added another market-leading name to its expanding global presence – Turkey’s largest fleet management provider Pfilo.
Istanbul-based Pfilo manages a portfolio of 17,000 vehicles across Turkey and Greece for blue-chip multinational clients such as HSBC, Ericsson, Johnson & Johnson and Pfizer.
Services include vehicle procurement, leasing and maintenance, fuel and CO2 management, sustainability consultancy, company car policy development, accident management and driver risk profiling.
Formed in 2007, the company has grown to become Turkey’s largest fleet management specialist and now leverages its significant purchasing power to drive down customers’ fleet costs, as well as optimising efficiency via a bespoke driver app and in-depth management reporting.
Murat Himmetoglu, Managing Director of Pfilo, said: “We are immensely proud to be joining the TraXall team with whom we share the same business philosophy and keen focus on customer service and KPI delivery. As the business community gets back on its feet post Covid, we are looking forward to continued growth and exciting times with the further development of tech solutions to drive fleet efficiencies.”
Pfilo will now trade as TraXall Turkey. The deal means that TraXall now has a presence in 30 countries across Europe and Latin America.
Leomont Wouda, TraXall’s International Business Development Director, commented: “TraXall has built an enviable reputation for understanding the complex cross-border needs of international fleet operators and already looks after the fleets of some of the world’s largest pharmaceutical giants, so the client commonalities and synergies with Pfilo were obvious.
“Pfilo also fits the TraXall model of total independence from leasing companies, allowing us to offer genuinely impartial and unbiased advice on the best fleet solutions on the market to our clients.
“Mobility, sustainability and connectivity remain watchwords for the global fleet industry and Pfilo is ideally placed to help us deliver all three across Turkey and Greece.”
TraXall International CEO Ross Jackson added: “Located at the crossroads of Asia and Europe, Turkey is a key market for us, currently showing keen growth potential and a marked increase in demand from global clients.
“The latest move will give us deep local knowledge of the Turkish and Greek markets and inform globally co-ordinated client strategies, supporting the ‘local management, global view’ approach which has been so pivotal to TraXall’s success.”
