Today Karhoo, a global mobility marketplace, announced its expansion into the Nordic region to help connect local taxi and private hire fleets with the ever-expanding tourist market. Tourism in the Nordics has seen a significant rise in recent years; since 2014 the region had an annual growth of 6-8.5% in the number of bed nights.
Karhoo’s ride booking and e-hailing platform claims to bring together regulated, licensed taxi and private hire vehicle fleets from around the world and connect them to global brands. It is a white-label solution that integrates into any travel and leisure operators’ websites and apps.
Through the new partnerships it is looking to forge in the Nordics, Karhoo will enable local fleets to increase their visibility to the vast tourist market with minimal impact on the way they currently operate. Karhoo already operates successfully in 1,500 cities across 125 countries. Nicolas Andine, Co-CEO of Karhoo said: “We have achieved great things in other markets and see huge potential in expanding into the Nordics. We want to partner with all local fleets and ensure they are able to access the vibrant tourist market that has seen a staggering rise in recent years. Through shared values of transparency, honesty and credibility, we are looking forward to partnering with established and licensed fleets and working with them to increase their access and competitiveness in the tourism market.” Karhoo currently has aggregated over 1.8 million vehicles within its network across all continents and has high ambitions regarding its emergence into the Nordic region.
