The Hertz-Jordan success story began in 1929 with the establishment by the Shakhshir family to the first transportation company in the country, (Nablus-Palestine).
The company owned one bus working the route Nablus-Haifa-Nablus. Since then the involvement in transportation services became a love affair with the family.
In 1948 the family expanded their business to include bus transportation services between the East Bank of Palestine and Trans-Jordan.
In 1956 the first taxi serving the city of Nablus and its vicinity came to life as a result of further business development.
1979 witnessed a further diversification in the family's interest. The Shakhshir family entered the field of car rental with the formation of Shakhshir Rent a Car company in Jordan.
In 1993 Hertz International the number one car rental agency in the world chose Shakhshir rent a car to be their franchisee in Jordan. Hertz international's selection was not a mere coincidence or a business adventure, but, due to the intensive experience enjoyed by the Shakhshir family in the transportation field combined with hearty dedication gave Hertz-International an easy choice to select Shakhshir Rent a Car amongst a host of renowned rental companies to be their Franchisee in the country.
