Green Company Company : How to Evolve Your Mobility?

Utility vehicles for hire, company car-sharing… Mobilize has solutions.

  • connectivity
  • electric vehicle
  • energy transition
  • shared mobility

Mobilize offers companies a range of services to help private-sector players develop sustainable mobility services for their customers and/or employees. 

What role does Mobilize play for companies?

Every day, many companies have to organise the journeys of their employees, customers and users, right through to the transport of products. Mobilize‘s role is to let them know that new shared mobility solutions can change their relationship with transport, facilitate their logistics, optimise their costs and lead them to the status of a green company. This can take the form of a fleet of car-sharing vehicles available to their customers. As Mobilize is doing with Ikea, through a turnkey digital transportation solution, operated by Renault Group’s network of dealers, in front of their stores to make it easier for customers to bring their purchases home. 

Mobilize also intends to help businesses pool some of their vehicles to provide a transportation solution for all of their employees. A system like this is also an opportunity for them to optimize their overall transportation cost and reduce mileage-related expense claims and taxi use.  

Finally, Mobilize works with the operators of automotive fleets, offering them supervision tools to better manage costs related to fuel and damages or simply to help them “green” their fleet by replacing combustion systems with electric or electrified vehicles. Everything is designed with an eye to simplification, optimization and of course environmental protection, a concern that’s becoming more and more important to citizens in both their private life and professional spheres. 

Can Mobilize encourage  car-sharing in companies? 

Mobilize offers two car-sharing systems 

First, there’s the option we refer to as “free-floating”. The idea is that you can borrow a vehicle located via a smartphone application, and then leave it on any on-street parking space within the geographic area covered by the service. It has already been launched in Madrid, Lyon and Milan with fleets of Dacia Spring car-sharing vehicles, within the service Zity by Mobilize. Free-Floating is an ideal mode of transportation for brief commutes. 

Mobilize also offers a closed-loop car-sharing solution, with Mobilize Share service. Customers return the vehicle where they originally borrowed it, i.e. at a dedicated on-street or dealer station. This solution is ideal for longer journeys, from one hour to several days. With this system, users reserve their vehicle and can be sure that they will have it when they want it and can return it to a ‘free’ parking space. This is the car-sharing model that Mobilize is proposing to city planners to design shared mobility solutions for future eco-districts or coliving sites. 

These two car-sharing solutions are complementary.

How does Mobilize support companies looking to optimise their vehicle fleets? 

Every business has its own specificities and constraints. This is why Mobilize favours a co-construction approach with its customers. The goal is not to offer a single solution to everyone but to adapt the service to each customer’s needs. Finding solutions is also part of Mobilize’s added value. Introducing fleets of vehicles for car-sharing, recharging solutions for vehicles, energy storage… there are many things that can be optimized. 

What can Mobilize offer to companies and/or retailers looking to provide their customers with mobility solutions? 

Mobilize has been a partner of Ikea for several years, providing customers with utility vehicles based in shop car parks. The aim is to enable Ikea customers to hire a vehicle directly from the checkout, to transport their furniture from the outlet to their home, when their own vehicle is unsuitable.  

Mobilize manages the entire rental via the Renault network of dealers. Mobilize also works with other chains such as Leroy Merlin and Bricorama.
