Additional office will increase service offerings and reduce travel times
The Washington, D.C. market will have a new option for ground transportation, as Baltimore-based ZBest Worldwide Chauffeured Transportation Services announces the addition of a second location in National Harbor, Md. Located just 15 minutes from the District of Columbia along the Potomac River, National Harbor is a resort community featuring hotels, shops, restaurants and activities for more than 10 million annual convention guests and tourists.
ZBest’s new facility in this community will provide an enhanced customer service experience for travelers in the D.C. and Northern Virginia areas. The new facility will open its doors March 1 and will begin accepting reservations concurrently.
Due to its proximity to this resort community, as well as Union Station and Reagan National and Washington Dulles International Airports, the National Harbor branch will allow ZBest to handle last-minute trips in the area quickly and effectively, with less travel time from Baltimore incurred.
The additional office also aligns with the company’s long-term plans for growth in the Baltimore and D.C. region.
“We’re excited to continue the growth of ZBest with the opening of our new National Harbor location. This expansion feels like a natural progression to continue to grow and better serve our customers in the D.C. market,” said ZBest President Mert Onal.
Limousine Industry Veteran Darren Vance to Lead National Harbor Office
ZBest has tapped industry veteran Darren Vance to lead the new office. Vance, formerly of Music Express, brings 15 years of experience in the D.C. and Virginia markets to his new role as vice president and general manager of ZBest’s National Harbor office.
“Darren has worked in the travel industry his entire career, and brings 15 years of experience servicing corporate and private clients with their transportation needs in the Washington, D.C. market. We’re excited to have Darren lead our D.C. team,” said ZBest Executive Vice President of Global Operations George Rains, who steps into the EVP role from general manager in conjunction with the opening of the National Harbor location.
Under Vance’s new leadership, affiliates currently utilizing ZBest’s services in Baltimore will receive the same attention to detail in the D.C. market that they have become accustomed to in the Baltimore market, according to Rains. Both locations will offer the same quality vehicles, experienced dispatch staff and streamlined team communications.
Ten to 15 vehicles in ZBest’s fleet, including a mix of sedans, SUVs, Sprinters and mini-busses, will be allocated to the National Harbor office, with capacity for up to 32 passengers.
