CHAUFFEURED CARS GROW IN CHINA: One of the key issues facing the chauffeured transportation industry is the advance of rental car companies into the chauffeured sector. Avis entered the competitive landscape last October when it bought a $120 million stake in Carey International. Now, it has grown its chauffeured car services to 14 major cities in China, which is emerging as a major market for all types of vehicles.

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.
