LeasePlan | ALD Automotive

With 15,700 employees worldwide and more than 60 years of experience, ALD Automotive | LeasePlan offers full-service leasing, flexible subscription services, fleet management and multi-mobility solutions for customers of all sizes – including large corporations, small and medium-sized businesses, freelancers and individuals. We benefit from extensive geographic coverage with a personal presence in 44 countries and representation in a further 16 countries through commercial alliances, which includes our strategic alliance with Wheels in North America.

Our expertise in forging partnerships has been developed through a pioneering white label partnership programme, which has expanded our customer base through diversified distribution channels. This “partnering DNA” has enabled us to form partnerships with more than 200 car manufacturers, banks and insurance companies, energy suppliers and mobility platforms. These, in turn, help our partners to diversify their mobility offerings, from operational leasing to fully integrated digital leasing options, and further expand the reach of our mobility expertise and services.

When our used vehicles reach the end of their leasing cycle, we market them primarily through ALD Carmarket, our market-leading global auction and online vehicle sales platform, or through one of the 51 showrooms we operate in 20 countries.

Mega-trends that are changing the world of sustainable mobility

Mega-trends that are changing the world of sustainable mobility

Market trends such as the transformation of urban mobility, environmental awareness, digital lifestyles with increasing “on-demand” mobility and the shift from ownership to use will continue to accelerate in the coming years.

Vehicles are increasingly becoming electrified, shared, connected and autonomous, with the demand for mobility strongly influenced by four distinct mega-trends: use instead of ownership, digitisation, demand for flexible and shared mobility, and electrification. These mega-trends are expected to shape the future of the mobility sector over the next five to seven years and generate strong growth opportunities.

In view of these rapid changes in today’s automotive and mobility industry, we firmly believe that with our combined strengths, we can transform our industry and that we are in the best position to provide even better services, solutions and value to our customers. Our teams are fully committed to creating the best sustainable mobility in the world and ensuring value for all our stakeholders. We are ready for the exciting journey that lies ahead, in which we will play our part in the shift towards large-scale adoption of sustainable mobility and provide our customers with the mobility solutions they need to succeed.
