Customer Testimonial: Alphabet & Solidariteit voor het Gezin
An order for over 700 new hybrid vehicles all at once is a rare occurrence in Europe, let alone in Belgium. The prominent deal went down in the annals of Solidariteit voor het Gezin, an independent organisation that delivers welfare and health care services in Flanders and Brussels. In the autumn of 2014, the organisation replaced the bulk of its car fleet and stayed true to its public image by unreservedly opting for the ecological alternative.
As one of the key players on the European fleet market, Alphabet takes its environmental responsibility seriously. “Alphabet has developped efficient ways of minimising the carbon dioxide emissions of car fleets, thereby raising the sustainability of the businesses that choose for Alphabet”, Alphabet Belgium's Managing Director Jan van Roon explains. The very reason why Solidariteit voor het Gezin decided on Alphabet as its leasing partner.
In collaboration with Toyota, all deliveries were made in october 2014, with a bulk delivery on Wednesday 22 October. That day was the perfect occasion for all partners to affirm their co-operation, and to concretise the formal handover of 221 vehicles.
The fact that Toyota adapted its production lines in Valenciennes to handle this order, and all vehicles were transported to Zeebrugge where they were given a personalised livery before being taken to a delivery centre in Brussels, are just a few elements from the comprehensive action plan that was created by the three partners.
