In recent times mobility has undergone tremendous change in China. For companies and individuals, mobility is no longer merely about driving from point A to point B, but increasingly about flexible and innovative mobility solutions that optimise the total cost of mobility.
“Our goal is to support businesses in optimising their corporate fleets in order to reduce the risk and hassle of car usage. Companies seeking solid consulting and efficient Business Mobility solutions find the right partner in Alphabet. We will strengthen the success of businesses in China and refine the public understanding of mobility, pushing forward China’s Business Mobility solution industry,” says Norbert van den Eijnden, CEO of Alphabet International.
Alphabet’s presence in this new market will in particular greatly benefit European and Australian fleet customers with local operations in China as they can continue sourcing their leasing products from one place. To comply with local business regulations, Alphabet operates in China as a part of Herald International Financial Leasing Co. Ltd. (HIL). Both Alphabet and HIL are divisions of the BMW Group. Since 2009, HIL has specialised in leasing solutions for commercial vehicles across China, and has retained a reputation of pioneering, innovative, professional and reliable mobility service provider in the industry.
