Avis Fleet: Our story in statistics

In 1980, Avis Fleet was a fledgling organisation with only a few vehicles and a brand promise to deliver exceptional fleet management products and solutions to fleet operating companies. We have since grown to become the largest fleet management company in southern Africa with more than 1 000 customers, over 300 000 vehicles and operations in eight African countries.

From strength to strength

Our tremendous growth has come with the knowledge that we have not travelled this journey alone. Along the way, we have shared the road with many well-respected organisations that have seen the value of outsourcing fleet management They include Nestlé, the South African Post Office and the City of Johannesburg, to name a few.

A change of ownership

We welcomed new ownership In 2005 when Barloworld Limited acquired Avis Southern Africa  This was a major turning point for us as we were able to take a leading market leadership position due to Barloworld’s relationships with leading international brands like Toyota and Volkswagen. We were also able to generate added value for our customers by procuring vehicles vehicles through our Barloworld Motor Retail dealerships.

The Avis Fleet approach

We have employed a unique approach by standing by our customers' side to see what they see. This approach has been of great value to us in helping us to develop our fleet solutions. It has given us the opportunity to acquaint ourselves with our customers' needs and develop a thorough understanding of the systems that drive their businesses. Partnering with this philosophy has been our goal to acquire and develop smart reporting platforms to provide our customers with the best information technology solutions available.

Our vision is to redefine the fleet services industry by giving the best product offering to fleet operating companies. We are fortunate to foresee future business requirements through our long-term partnerships with each of our customers. Our philosophy is to shape solutions around your business needs rather than to just offer you a list of products and services. We believe our way of working will ensure that you get the maximum business mileage from your fleet. Find out more about Avis Fleet solutions.
