Simon Oliphant, CEO of Mobility Solutions Business Division stated: “This further investment in Mobility Mixx, making it a wholly owned subsidiary supports our strategy of combining multi-modal travel with our traditional vehicle-based services to offer customers integrated, flexible and sustainable mobility. With the shift from total cost of ownership to total cost of mobility and decarbonisation we see excellent growth prospects in this sector”.
MHC Mobility Netherlands have partnered with Mobility Mixx previously, launching a mobility card that gives employees greater choice over the modes of transport they choose whilst combining all associated costs into one invoice for their employer. The possibility of having one system to manage your mobility budget offers flexibility, and incentivises the use of alternatives to traditional car transport. We’ve already seen how effective the MHC Mobility and Mobility Mixx partnership can be, and we’re excited to see what this partnership holds for the future!
