ACG Introduces New Carsharing Advisory Service

Neil Abrams, president of Abrams Consulting Group Inc. (ACG), a consulting and research firm serving the global auto rental and allied industries since 1982, has announced the formation of ACG’s newest business unit, Abrams CarSharing Advisors (ACA). ACA will be focused exclusively on introducing carsharing advisory services to businesses, institutions, and government agencies.

Carsharing, using a membership and all-inclusive hourly rental business model which is supported by a fully integrated, virtual IT platform, has been available in Europe for decades, beginning as an environmental movement. In the mid-90’s, carsharing found its way to the U.S., where two companies, Flexcar and Zipcar were founded as for profit businesses.

Abrams explains, “ACA has been formed to assist existing and new businesses, corporate fleet operators, and others who have short-term transportation needs, to exploit the enormous value proposition offered by carsharing.”

ACA will be operating out of offices in New York and New Jersey, and affiliated offices worldwide.
