Conti360° launched in Austria; roll-out to continue in 2011/12
As of July 2011, Conti360° Fleet Services has extended its European coverage into Austria. This is the first addition to the German tyre maker’s service portfolio following its launch in eight core European markets – Belgium, Germany, France, the United Kingdom, Italy, Poland, Spain and the Czech Republic – and Continental now has plans to further expand the network into other regions.
“Globalisation, expansion of business areas — in geographical terms, too — along with company mergers and changing customer requirements are making Conti360° Fleet Services increasingly interesting,” commented Kurt Bergmüller, who is responsible for Continental’s fleet services in the Austrian market. With the aid of Conti360° Fleet Services, Bergmüller and his team from Continental/Semperit will support Austrian-based transport companies both at home and when travelling in other European countries.
In 2011 and 2012, Conti360° Fleet Services will also be introduced in Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland and Hungary. The coming year will also see the initial launch of Continental’s all-round fleet service in the Asia-Pacific region. Australia and Malaysia will be two of the first markets where Continental introduces Conti360°.
