Arval received the Pirelli Supplier Awards in the categories “Service Level” and “Global Presence”

Pirelli is one of Arval’s global customers who benefits from the services of its International Business Office (IBO), a multi-cultural, multi-lingual team of experts in managing international fleets. Based in Paris, the IBO team has the expertise to design, optimise and implement customised fleet strategies and the authority to make decisions internationally, delivering locally.

On September 26th, Pirelli, the multinational tyre manufacturer based in Milan, awarded nine of its more than 10,000 suppliers at the global level.

Every year, this ceremony is a way of recognition for the best suppliers, who actively contribute to Pirelli’s sustainability, innovation and quality.
Among the winners, Arval has been awarded in the categories “Service Level”,  acknowledging its capacity to deliver a high quality of added-value service, and “Global Presence” thanks to the dedicated international account management structure and clearly defined processes of the Arval International Business Office, which enable a seamless implementation of contracts and global reporting tools capturing fleet data across the world.

“Pirelli has a Global High Value business model. To achieve its targets, Pirelli needs partners who are able to guarantee not only excellent and always innovative service but who also share values such as attention to people, the environment, customers and brand value. For this reason, we wanted to award companies that share these aims with Pirelli and who have become true partners and not simply suppliers of goods or services”, declares Pierluigi de Cancellis, Chief Procurement Officer Pirelli.

“We feel honoured to have been selected as a winner for this award and see it as a reward for our daily commitment to always better serve our international clients with the same level of service quality throughout our geographies ; this recognition pushes us to further strengthen our partnership with Pirelli and our commitment to their teams and drivers”, declares Alessandro Pigazzi, Arval International Business Office Director and Global Alliance Manager.
