Corporate travel policies focus on hotel accommodation, rail and air travel, but taxis are often left for the traveller to arrange independently, despite that fact that taxis are the least regulated mode of transport.
This is risky for the traveller and bad news for the industry. Berlin-based Blacklane is aiming to change that – it acts as a broker and online booking platform to offer high-end cars to business users, and has invested more than $80 million developing a global service.
Currently, Blacklane covers 250 cities and 500 airports in 50 countries, and it plans to expand this year to more than 300 cities, with major growth across the Middle East and Africa. It has also added concierge services to its global offering. Blacklane’s strategy has been to build building a highly efficient back-end system, with capacity utilisation the key to keeping prices affordable.
At ProDriver Congress London, we’ll be joined by Blacklane’s Adam Parken, who will explain how the company plans to offer improved services for participating chauffeurs – and how it wants to tackle the move toward electric cars.
