10 Anuário Brasileiro do Setor de Locação de Veículos Brazilian Vehicle Rental Sector Yearbook 2022 Serve well to serve always At the beginning of my term as President of the National Council at ABLA, as we took on a responsibility to represent, I like to remember how important it is to be committed to serving. Serving members, business partners, clients, and all the players in the car rental and leasing industry. This gathers momentum as we have the opportunity to lead ABLA as of 2022, when our association celebrates its 45th year. Our history is marked by the understanding of rental and leasing companies’ demands, and effective, efficient service. Over these four and a half decades, our tradition has been one of alignment among leaders and opinion formers in each state. Together with this, it is time to further appreciate the unique standard of nationwide action to strengthen and promote the cultural change from ownership to usage throughout the potential market for our products and services, always with the National Federation and the State Rental and leasing Company Unions. With investments in technology to generate value, ABLA will remain focused. The attraction and retention of members will continue to require dedication and is directly related to the values perceived by rental and leasing companies. All this is within a collective effort to achieve mor, to continue to drive the association and the car rental and leasing industry. This edition of the Yearbook describes this growth, with reliable and accurate information endorsed by the Federal Data Processing Service (SERPRO). And despite the difficulties created by the pandemic, statistics show that vehicle sales and the total fleet owned by rental and leasing companies continued to grow on 2020. Of course, there are challenges remaining to leverage improvements for car rental and leasing companies, be they small, medium or large. The current scenario, where companies face high interest rates, production limitations, and car price increases, are some of the challenging realities. However, we remain confident. We have a renewed strategic plan, with a vision of the coming years, preparedwith great attention and care. We have reviewed projects and goals and will drive the development of people so that ABLA promotes the success of its members. Th is the time to move confidently in the construction of healthy, sustainable, and long-term relationships that have characterized ABLA since 1977. We are ready. Here is to another 45 years of even more success and solutions. Marco Aurélio Nazaré President of the National Council of ABLA ABLA
