In 1980, Avis Fleet was a fledgling organisation with only a few vehicles and a brand promise to deliver exceptional fleet products and solutions to fleet companies.
We have since grown to become the largest fleet management company in Southern Africa with over 1000 customers, 313 316 vehicles and operations in eight African countries. With our tremendous growth has come the knowledge that our journey has not been alone. Along the way we are proud to have shared the road with many well-respected organisations who have seen the value in outsourcing fleet management including Nestle, the South African Post Office, and the City of Johannesburg to name a few. ADT joined us on our progressive journey in 1999. Originally their fleet consisted of a thousand vehicles, today 16 years later, they still trust us to oversee their fleet.
With the changing times we have diversified too, bringing different kinds of fleet companies on board. We have solidified and established partnerships with black owned companies to enable us to secure tenders and for them to reach new heights. A sterling example of this enterprise development was the establishment of Vuswa Fleet Services in 2002. As a hundred percent black female owned company we were able to tender for the Kruger National Park’s fleet of vehicles. Vuswa has since secured the business for all SANParks nationally and also manages service and maintenance plans on behalf of General Motors South Africa.
Nine years ago we welcomed new ownership - Barloworld Limited acquired Avis Southern Africa in 2005. This was a major turning point for us as we were able to take a market leadership position due to Barloworld’s relationships with leading international brands like Toyota and Volkswagen and we were also able to generate added value by selling our ex-fleet vehicles through our own dealerships.
We have employed a unique approach - we stand by our customers' side - to see what they see. This approach has been of great value to us in helping us to develop our solutions for fleet companies. It has given us the opportunity to really get to know our customers' needs and develop a thorough understanding of the systems that drive their businesses. In tandem with this philosophy has been our goal to acquire and develop smart reporting platforms in order to provide our clients with the best information technology solutions available.
Our vision is to redefine the fleet services industry by giving the best product offering to fleet companies. Because of our long-term partnerships with each of our customers we are fortunate to foresee future business requirements and our new philosophy is to shape solutions around your business needs rather than merely offer you a list of products and services. We believe our new way of working will ensure you enjoy maximum business mileage from your fleet.
