This non-profit organization, which benefits from an initial vehicle provision partnership with French electric utility ERDF, develops a long-term economic model rooted in low-cost vehicle hire and vehicle repair. Encouraged by the success of its second site, by its partnership with ERDF, and by demand from other regions, Apreva wishes to launch a network in 2016. All the regions concerned are faced with the phenomenon of insufficient public transport, exacerbating the social exclusion of large sectors of the population living distant from employment hubs.
APREVA seeks to set up and run a professional network of socially responsible garages handling vehicle rental and repair. The aim is to transfer business to existing structures, as regards equipment and technical know-how. The guiding principles behind network development include common use of the APREVA “brand” and methodology for the vehicle rental business, and shared use of the production system, including the APREVAloc vehicle rental utility.
Foundation support will help with expansion of this economic model.share this project
