MT. LAUREL, NJ (July 8, 2013): ARI®, a leading global fleet services provider specializing in complex car and truck fleets, is pleased to announce that it has acquired the fleet management segment of Fleetlevel+ Services GmbH’s business holdings. The transaction is expected to close in August. The new company, which will be known as ARI Fleet Germany, supports ARI’s continued development of a strong, strategic global footprint and will provide the company’s clients with enhanced fleet management services and solutions in both the German market and in continental Europe.
“The acquisition of Fleetlevel+’s fleet management business supports ARI’s on-going focus on developing a strong global platform to better serve the needs of our customers who are growing globally as well,” said ARI President Carl A.

We hope to leverage this new opportunity in Germany to provide services to both our existing multi-national customers and those with regional requirements in Europe. All of this will be supported by ARI’s continued investment in people, processes, and technology.”
The Stuttgart-based company offers a comprehensive range of fleet management services and will be supported by ARI’s global network of industry professionals, the company’s pioneering suite of fleet management solutions and its unmatched investment in technology and innovation.
