Mature CEE markets ready to evolve?

The CEE region (Central and Eastern Europe) is hardly to be called emerging anymore when it comes to Fleet & Lease. With an average growth of 2 to 3 % above their local GDP the markets are growing steady into a maturity level which can be compared with some of the West European markets. Big International Corporates found their way to these markets already since a little less than two decades. Local heroes established themselves firmly. Service levels increased, and the mid-sized companies are now developing into a interesting potential client base to grow business. Still there are a lot of differences. Shared mobility and EV are coming on the radar in a far less pace than in Western parts of Europe. Same applies to private lease, which might be a product for self employed people, but not for the larger majority yet. Fleet Management instead of Full Operational Lease is (still) very popular. Maybe CEE is leap frogging Western Europe in this area unintended.

This paper considers the topic of mobility and what it means for businesses in general and the fleet management world in particular. We look at the developing trends in the field as well as the impact on people and places. Complete with practical recommendations and forecasts of coming changes, the documents considers how Mobility will affect you and your business and how you can turn it to your advantage.

Fleet Maturity Test

The fleet maturity survey allows you to objectively measure the maturity of your fleet in 6 categories:

  • Car Policy,

  • Risk Management,

  • Sourcing & Supplier Management,

  • Contracts & Agreements,

  • Mobility and Powertrains,

  • Data & Cost.


After replying to 30 multiple-choice questions, the tool calculates a ‘maturity score’ and positions your score against a ‘target maturity level’ based on your fleet size.

Try using the tool based on specific global regions for your fleet to allow you to measure the results of your efforts in each country or region.
