Atlanta, Sept. 22, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

Free2Move is a leader in mobility, and offers a complete ecosystem for private and professional customers, with tailor-made solutions that offer multiple vehicle access options through a single web-based and mobile app. The group is accelerating the deployment of its Mobility Hub services globally, as the needs of B2B and B2C customer needs begin to converge.

"Free2Move reaffirms its unique positioning and international leadership in the mobility market. We have all the talent, cutting-edge technology, a strong brand and a sustainable business model that will allow us to continue our deployment pace and achieve our goals,” explains Brigitte Courtehoux, Free2Move CEO.

"Habits are changing and the mobility needs of individuals and companies are merging," continues Brigitte Courtehoux. "Drivers are now "consuming" mobility. We support our customers in their freedom of movement and facilitate their travel with a 360° mobility offer. We are proud to have created and marketed our mobility hub which covers all needs and all use-cases ranging from a few minutes, days, months or years. We are now positioned as the international leader in all the forms of mobility.”

Cities, companies, and individuals have all come to recognize that equitable access to mobility promotes well-being, improves employee productivity and limits the environmental impact of commutes. Free2Move brings all customer groups a fresh approach to optimizing mobility with turnkey solutions.

Individual and corporate Free2Move clients simply use the app to access a complete mobility hub that empowers them to rent a vehicle for a few minutes, to several months in major cities and more than 170 countries worldwide:
