OUR STORY

Blacklaneは、2011年にJens WohltorfとFrank Steuerによって設立されました。自身が頻繁に移動することから、両者は統一性のあるグローバルなプロドライバーサービスの必要性を見出しました。彼らのビジョンは、乗車をよりスマートに予約して管理すること―手頃な料金で、信頼性の高い、効率的なソリューションを提供することでした。2013年、Blacklaneはそれまでの30都市から130都市にサービスを拡大し、国際的にその存在を示してきました。7月にニューヨークを、12月にはパルマを追加し、100日以内に100の新都市を追加するという目標、‘Mission 100’を達成しました。このような急成長が、Amadeusのような世界有数の大手旅行代理店とパートナーシップを締結するきっかけとなりました。結果、航空券やホテルを予約するように、プライベート・ドライバーも一般や法人向けの旅行ウェブサイトで簡単に予約出来るようになりました。我々も、今では30の国々から200人以上の従業員が集まり、25以上もの言語が飛び交うグローバルな会社へと成長しました。
