A one stop shop provider of Transport Support Services
Transport Support Services, trading principally under the Affinity brand, provides bundled fuel and toll cards, financial and support services for hauliers in southern Europe. Affinity is an agent of DKV Euro Service in Romania, one of the world’s largest fuel card providers and provides the DKV fuel card across the Balkans to a database of over 2,000 Eastern European hauliers and over 14,000 trucks.
In addition, Affinity provides a “one stop shop” of transport services including roadside assistance and ferry bookings. Affinity’s commercial model fits well within the Group as many of the hauliers who are customers of Affinity also supply haulage services to Delamode a key factor that enables the Group to have a good understanding of its customers/suppliers, which underpins the strategy to provide further financial services such as insurance and leasing.
The division’s 18 years of experience provides the unique platform to successfully expand in new geographical regions, as well as being well placed to develop further its service and product offerings
