Client wins drive record growth at mobility tech business

Saltaire-based mobility technology and services company, FOD Mobility Group, has seen record transactional growth across its Fleetondemand ground transportation product, and it’s B2B MaaS platform, Mobilleo.

The growth has resulted in an additional revenue growth of £30.1m for the company heading into 2023.

The Fleetondemand automotive mobility platform saw a significant increase in vehicle rental transactions, reaching over 500,000 vehicle rental days.

FOD attributes this record growth to the adoption of its services from new customer wins in the UK and from newly acquired customers in target markets across Europe.

The new FOD Ride, taxi and private hire service has seen huge growth in demand since it was integrated into the Fleetondemand platform, processing over 51,000 new bookings last year alone.

FOD says it plans to continue its drive for innovation with the launch of an upgraded version of the Fleetondemand platform in March 2023.

Last year also saw the continued expansion of the business into several European markets with the opening of three new office locations in Ireland, Germany and France.

Plans are underway to increase its presence with the introduction of three additional offices in Belgium, Spain and Holland by the end of 2023.

FOD’s growth plans have been supported by a significant investment in recruitment with 44 new appointments being made across all departments since January last year, including several senior level roles.

To accommodate this additional resource the business moved its Yorkshire headquarters to new, larger premises in October.

Justin Whitston, CEO and founder, said: “We’re continuing to invest in the business to ensure we remain at the forefront of the mobility services sector, which includes over £2.85m in product development.

“Our outstanding performance demonstrates huge resilience against a challenging backdrop for the travel and automotive industries in recent years.

“Our organic growth is set to continue with the announcement of two significant UK and pan-European customer projects this year, powered respectively by our Mobilleo and Fleetondemand platforms.”
