We will remember 2016 not only because it was a jubilee year – it marked the first decade of Fraikin’s presence on the Polish market. But most of all, 2016 will be a memorable year due to our successes and the next steps we have taken on our way to the company’s growth. We are all part of it!
We entered this year by launching My Smart Fleet, the new telemetric system. We use it for satellite monitoring of vehicles and fleet operation. This innovation gave us a number of new possibilities. The system improves the effectiveness of management of our car assets.
In 2016 we extended our service portfolio with rental of modern and environmentally friendly buses. This is the answer to market needs. In this way we contribute to developing the local public transport in Poland.
Early July marked the tenth anniversary of Fraikin Polska’s operation. The formal gala in the capital’s Łazienki Królewskie (Royal Baths) park was an excellent opportunity to celebrate and to summarize a decade of successes and consistent growth of our company. We had the pleasure to celebrate this anniversary with many respectable guests, among others with representatives of the growing number of our partners and contractors.
In the summer, thanks to an agreement with Lang Team, for the second time in a row we became a logistics partner of the Tour de Pologne international cycling race. We owe it to our successful debut in 2015 and effective cooperation with organisers of this prestigious event – the biggest cyclical sports competition in our country. We marked our participation in Tour de Pologne by putting up our own team in the amateur category!
Our answer to a hot summer was a special offer for prospects interested in renting different types of refrigerator trucks. The “Carry it cool” offering is worth emphasizing as it is a clear embodiment of one of the fundamental values of our business activity: it is our customers and their needs which determine the development of Fraikin Polska’s “menu”!
Over the ten years of our operation in Poland we have become known as a flexible and expansive company. As announced by Artur Nowicki, CEO Central Eastern Europe, this will continue both in the short- and long-term perspective. Fraikin wants to preserve all the elements that have built our success to-date, but it will not give up on innovation and introducing ever better solutions.
“In 2017 we will again be the logistics partner of Tour de Pologne. We are introducing long-term rental services such as FlexiTime, i.e. rental from 12 months with a simplified withdrawal procedure. This offering will be tailored to the needs of entrepreneurs who run seasonal businesses, which necessitates quick modifications of the car fleet. But we also focus on the companies which implement short-term projects,” says Nowicki.
“In 2017 we want to help our customers address the challenges in their businesses. Together with the customer we want to search for new solutions and propose only the best ones. To do that, we are expanding both the fleet and our network of short-term rental branches. On a global scale, we continue to focus on the growth of CEE markets,” says Nowicki.
