Unidas was founded in 1985, when five car rental companies and two investors came together in the city of São Paulo, creating a leasing company with seven branches and approximately 500 vehicles. Since then, Unidas has expanded significantly and, at the end of 2017, merged with Locamerica under the Unidas brand, combining their products and services in a complete range of mobility solutions for individuals and companies. The company is now the second largest car rental company in Brazil and leader in fleet rental for companies.
By entering the Brazilian market, Alphabet has reinforced its standing as a strong Business Mobility provider for global enterprises. Overall, the company owes it continued success to its unique tailor-made approach that enables it to offer products that perfectly meet client needs as well as its unparalleled knowledge of fleet management and mobility industries.
