Wunder Mobility, a technology supplier of digital and innovative mobility concepts, is taking over Fleetbird, the leading provider of car and scooter sharing software, for a two-digit million sum. The acquisition allows Wunder to complete the portfolio and strengthens its position on the mobility market. The company is the only international technology provider to offer fleet management, shuttle services and carpooling from a single source, according to Wunder Mobility.

As a result of the acquisition, the team will be significantly expanded especially in programming. A sales team is being setting up to establish the product across the globe. The founders of Fleetbird, Benjamin Krüger, CEO and Philipp Müller, COO of Wunder Fleet, will continue to work in their previous positions.
