Our Story

Directors Jack Gordon-Crosby and Jessie Larsen founded OptiFleet on a shared vision to transform how New Zealand organisations approach the purchase, operation and sale of their motor vehicles.

To help our clients adopt a best practice sourcing approach in what is a complex and fast-changing industry, we have spent two years developing an online car sourcing platform, BestCar, the only tool of its kind allowing suppliers the length of the country to bid on our clients’ business.

We are constantly driving to innovate and improve our solutions with the aim of leading New Zealand fleets to the front of the class. Since 2011, our customers have purchased over $1.4 billion in new vehicles. We have now adapted our technology so that every New Zealander can have access to our platform that our businesses enjoy.
