  • Ford Trucks and BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions join forces to offer  tailor-made financing solutions in Europe…Ford Trucks customers will benefit from  the most suitable financial solutions under the brand “Ford Trucks Lease”

Ford Trucks reached an agreement with BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions to offer finance solutions to their customers based in France, Germany and Benelux. Through this cooperation, customers will be able to access a range of leasing and financing solutions for all their requirements across the Ford Trucks Dealer Network.

Ford Trucks, Ford’s only heavy commercial vehicle production hub worldwide, joined forces with BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions, part of the BNP Paribas Group, Europe’s leading bank and an important international banking player. Together, they will offer Ford Trucks’ customers financing solutions in France, Germany and the Benelux countries.

As an innovative brand that pays attention to its customers’ needs, Ford Trucks regularly introduces new business models that make an impact on the global market. Building on more than 60 years of experience in truck manufacturing and product development for international markets, Ford Trucks is taking another step to strengthen its aim of being a “companion” that cares about its customers and improves their business. As part of the new cooperation with BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions customers who choose Ford Trucks vehicles in France, Germany, and the Benelux can now benefit from Ford Trucks Lease’s financing options in line with country and market dynamics.

Following back-to-back launches in Portugal, Spain, Italy, Belgium and Luxembourg, Ford Trucks continued to take strategically concrete steps in its growth journey in Western Europe by making successive appointments of distributors in Europe’s biggest markets, Germany and France last year. With this agreement, the company will offer financial leasing, operational leasing and loan solutions to its customers in the regions, under the “Ford Trucks Lease” brand through its distributors.

Ford Trucks Lead Serhan Turfan: “As our global journey continues, we offer our customers more benefits through our cooperation with BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions.”

Noting that the logistics needs are on the rise, in line with heightened commercial activity, particularly in recent years, leading to an increase in heavy vehicle exports, Ford Trucks Lead Serhan Turfan commented on the international expansion of Ford Trucks and cooperation with BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions:

As Ford Trucks, we are happy to reach a groundbreaking position in the heavy commercial industry in a short time. Winner of the 2019 International Truck of the Year (ITOY) award, the F-MAX continues to be one of the most important symbols of our production power, engineering capabilities, design, technology, and vehicle development skills. After receiving the ITOY award, we accelerated our growth plans as a result of the high demand for the F-MAX in Europe. Through our engineering expertise and superior R&D, we now produce trucks and operate in over 40 countries worldwide. Our global expansion continues as planned with new facilities, more markets, and new collaborations. In this regard, our cooperation with BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions stood out with its wide range of financial products and digital solutions. In line with our goal of being a “companion” who cares about their customers and improves their business, we will continue to create amenities for our customers to push their business even further.”
