Arval Mobility Observatory
Corporate Vehicle Observatory

In 2002, Arval founded the Corporate Vehicle Observatory in France; it was introduced to Germany in 2005. Its purpose is to tackle questions related to corporate mobility at an international level from a neutral perspective. CVO covers a broad spectrum of topics. In addition to dealing with the use of new technologies such as alternative engines, it also addresses fleet management – paying special attention to total cost of ownership (TCO) – as well as general questions of mobility. These general mobility-related issues range from observing the control systems of individual countries to intermodular mobility systems. The findings on these topics are addressed in the following formats:

  • Expert panel discussions

  • Specialist brochures

  • CVO fleet barometer

Special attention is currently being paid to the CVO fleet barometer, which has already seen its twelfth edition in Germany. The following points are covered each year:

Where decision-makers stand on topics relevant to vehicle fleets
