Scott Solombrino, CEO of Dav El Chauffeured Transportation in Boston, told the opening session of the International LCT Show last month that rental car companies and their economies of scale loom as the biggest competitive challenge to the chauffeured vehicle industry. As Avis tries harder, chauffeured operators need to work smarter.
