Arval Italy and Shell Recharge Solutions work together to support the development of electric mobility
The agreement signed at an international level between Arval and Shell Recharge Solutions intends to encourage the development of electric and sustainable mobility, supporting the energy transition processes of Arval's client companies and offering them a real ecosystem for recharging vehicles.
Today, renting and driving an electric vehicle with Arval is even easier. Arval Italy, a company specialising in long-term rental and sustainable mobility solutions, has enriched their offering through their partnership with Shell Recharge Solutions, global leader in smart charging solutions for electric vehicles.
The agreement - signed at an international level between Arval and Shell Recharge Solutions - intends to encourage the development of electric and sustainable mobility, supporting the energy transition processes of Arval's client companies and offering them a real ecosystem for recharging vehicles.
The Shell Recharge card and app
The first product resulting from the partnership is the Shell Recharge card - allowing client companies to access one of the largest recharging networks in Italy, and the largest in Europe with over 300,000 points in 35 different countries. In conjunction with the Shell Recharge app, it is also possible to search for the nearest charge point, start, monitor and conclude the recharge process, and make a payment all in one place.
Furthermore, by integrating the charging costs into the rental fee, fleet managers will have the advantage of having Arval as their only mobility partner, thus optimising the management of their EV fleet.
The partnership is a concrete action that confirms Arval’s commitment to developing solutions to support the energy transition paths of its customers. This in line with the ambitious objectives set out in the Arval Beyond strategic plan which predicts the achievement of 700,000 electrified vehicles in the global Arval fleet by 2025.
Dario Casiraghi, General Manager of Arval Italia, shared: “The diffusion of increasingly sustainable mobility is a pillar of our commitment, in the context of the ambitious objectives set by our global strategic plan. We are therefore determined to align with winning and innovative solutions to facilitate this process. Our intention is to act proactively towards our customers through consultancy on issues related to energy transition processes and respond with concrete initiatives to meet their needs. They must be able to take advantage of a smart charging experience that is accessible and effective.”
“Arval and Shell Recharge Solutions have created a partnership with the aim of driving the adoption of electric vehicles and allowing anyone to move sustainably. We believe Shell Recharge Solutions can offer Arval customers an optimised charging experience, and that our expertise in developing charging technologies will help encourage EV drivers. Our mission is to offer drivers a convenient and seamless charging experience, and simplify access to a large number of charging points across Europe. In fact, our 2022 EV Driver Survey showed that ease of use is the most important factor EV drivers consider when choosing a charge point” said Melanie Lane, CEO of Shell Recharge Solutions.
