The global chauffeured transportation network launches Embarque, a subsidiary that offers a carbon-balanced green vehicle alternative.
HOUSTON -- Carey International, Inc. recently announced the international launch of its new subsidiary company called EMBARQUE an affordable option for safe, reliable and green chauffeured transportation.
Carey announced the service during the 42nd annual National Business Travel Association (NBTA) International Convention and Exposition in Houston last week.
Embarque features a 100% Carbon Balanced fleet of U.S. EPA SmartWay certified vehicles, a dedicated team of certified professional drivers, and transparent pricing. The fleet includes Toyota Camry Hybrids and Ford Fusion Hybrids.
"The international launch of Embarque marks a substantial shift in Carey International's portfolio of services, but not the way Carey does business," said Gary L. Kessler, President and CEO of Carey International, Inc., in a statement. "Embarque is the end result of Carey, once again, listening to the needs and challenges of the travel marketplace and reacting with a tangible solution that meaningfully addresses the concerns of our customers."
Embarque was developed and refined during the past year through a series of trial launches in multiple cities across the U.S. and the U.K., beginning with Chicago in 2009. "We (Carey International, Inc.) began testing the Embarque product in Chicago last year, and based upon overwhelmingly positive customer feedback, we began to slowly introduce the product in other cities," said Sally Snead, senior vice president of operations for Carey. "As the product rolled out slowly throughout the testing phase, we were able to make certain adjustments and improvements before we launched in subsequent markets."
