The first international company in Bulgaria, which offers operational leasing with full service and fleet management - ALD Automotive, reported more than 20070 cars leased under operational leasing since the beginning of their business activity in Bulgaria in July 2014. The Company steadily grow due to the increased demand for these services by corporate clients.
The advantages of the service "full operational leasing" for the business are numerous. Among the most important are the release of resources, which enables the company to focus on its core business activity, while the responsibility for its mobility takes the leasing company. Vehicle ownership also remains in the leasing company and the customer does not bear the risk associated with residual value and vehicle maintenance. Full Operational Leasing provides financial predictability for customers because they pay a fixed monthly installment for the car. Businesses find a consultant in the face of the leasing company during the entire process of selecting the vehicle to provide the necessary support services and analysis of all vehicle-related costs.
ALD Automotive is part of Societe Generale Group and is the first international company in that business sector on the domestic market. ALD Automotive is also a global leader in the financing and management of fleets with 50 years of experience, with direct presense in over 40 countries and 5000 employees worldwide.
The total number of leased cars under operational leasing on the whole Bulgarian market up to date is around 16,000, which makes the ALD 12% market share and ranked first among competitors. The company predicts 15% growth of leasing services at local level in 2016 compared to 2015 as a result of it – an increasement in the total number of leased cars to over 19 000. The same trends sensitive growth is expected to be retained in 2017
