ONZE VERHAAL

Blacklane werd in 2011 opgericht door Jens Wohltorf en Frank Steuer. Als frequente reizigers zagen zij een behoefte aan een enkele wereldwijde professionele chauffeurservice. Hun visie was een slimmere manier om ritten te reserveren en te beheren. Iets dat betaalbaar, betrouwbaar en efficiënt is. Blacklane is gegroeid van een tweemansbedrijf in Berlijn tot een internationaal team van meer dan 200 mensen met een satellietkantoor in Singapore. We verbinden reizigers met professionele chauffeurs in meer dan 300 steden in 50 landen over de hele wereld en hebben partnerschappen gesloten met giganten in de reisindustrie, zoals Amadeus, Expedia, Hertz en Finnair. Dit betekent dat professionele chauffeurs net zo gemakkelijk kunnen worden gereserveerd als vluchten en hotels op websites voor particuliere en zakelijke reizen.
