Leading corporate ground transport provider One Transport is being rebranded as Gett Business Solutions. One Transport was founded in the UK in 2001 and is used by more than 20,000 corporations worldwide.
Gett, which started in 2009 as GetTaxi, acquired global ground transportation consolidator One Transport in April 2016 as part of a deal involving the takeover of Radio Taxis and its parent company, Mountview House Group.
The One Transport rebrand brings the company’s corporate product under the main Gett brand that is used around the world for the first time. Gett Business Solutions is now rolling out new services that will offer an all-in-one solution to booking and managing ground transport. As well as access to vehicles, Gett Business Solutions can streamline ground transport operations to lower the overall true cost of travel, offer full transparency and control of travel rules, and fulfil clients’ obligations on data security and duty of care to travelling employees.
Matteo de Renzi, Gett’s UK CEO said: “Corporate ground transportation has been dramatically disrupted in the last 10 years with the rise of apps and employee expectations have shifted accordingly. Traditional providers have operational experience but understandably can’t keep up with the dramatic technological shifts that have been seen. Equally, companies focussed solely on mass market technology can’t deliver the kind of trusted, bespoke service that modern day travel managers need.”
He continued: “We’re able to reduce the costs that result from employees self-booking their travel, as well as avoid the risks inherent with corporate travel outside of a managed solution.”
Gett Business Solutions enables users to pre-book vehicles around the world as well as order services on demand in key territories. As well as providing access to hundreds of thousands of incumbent fleet vehicles and fleet vetting and management services, the company can integrate clients’ existing preferred vehicle fleets onto its platform.
In May 2016, Volkswagen Group announced it would invest $300 million in Gett, allowing Gett to grow its operations across European markets.
