AUTO1 Group SE: AUTO1 Group cooperates with Allane Mobility Group (former Sixt Leasing) and secures a supply of more than 10,000 vehicles per year
Berlin, February 22, 2022
• AUTO1.com integrates Allane Mobility Group’s vehicle inventory via automated auction format in real-time
• Autohero and registered partner dealers benefit from an additional offer of more than 10,000 high-quality used cars on AUTO1.com
• Allane Mobility Group increases reach by partnering with Europe's largest used car platform to achieve top prices
Berlin, 22.02.2022 – AUTO1 Group, Europe's leading digital automotive platform for buying and selling used cars online, is now cooperating with Allane SE (former Sixt Leasing) to secure an additional supply of more than 10,000 high-quality lease returns and fleet vehicles per year.
On Europe's largest wholesale platform for used cars, Allane Mobility Group's vehicle inventory of returns is available to dealers through a fully automated interface (API). By partnering with AUTO1.com, Allane SE expands its network of more than 60,000 active buyers in 30 markets across Europe and achieves top prices for its used cars. The auctions take place weekly and include 250 to 300 high-quality lease and fleet vehicles of various makes and models. After the auction buyers benefit from the extensive logistics support provided by the Europe-wide AUTO1 logistics network with 300 partners. For example, each vehicle can be delivered to the buyer within Germany at a fixed price in just a few days.
The real-time connection to Allane Mobility Group's inventory and auctions also benefits Autohero, the fastest growing online provider of used cars in Europe. As a result, Autohero's inventory will be significantly expanded by high-quality lease returns and fleet vehicles.
At Allane Mobility Group, the cooperation is viewed extremely positively, as Andreas Birgmann, Director Remarketing at Allane SE, explains: "The technical connection of the systems has worked without any problems and the first runs have delivered very satisfactory results. With its focus on the digital business model for the commercial vehicle trade, AUTO1.com is an ideal partner for us to efficiently market our lease returns and fleet vehicles. The innovative spirit that emanates from both sides is an excellent prerequisite for joint business success."
"We are delighted to have found another great partner for selling our inventory and are sure that we will be able to generate considerable value for both parties," says Werner König, Managing Director Remarketing at Allane SE.
"We are proud that our high-quality vehicle inventory on both AUTO1.com and Autohero continues to grow through the annual offering from Allane Mobility Group. Through our very active buyer network in Europe, our new partner Allane benefits from the vibrant and dynamic bidding behavior of dealers and high consumer demand for used cars, resulting in excellent prices. Car dealers, on the other hand, are always searching for high-quality vehicles that they can market profitably, especially these days due to the vehicle shortage. Our registered partners no longer switch between different platforms. They can rely on a diverse inventory and the leading associated services from AUTO1.com," says Jost Dieckhaus, VP Remarketing Europe at AUTO1 Group.
