Hear from our customers firsthand about the Merchants Fleet difference

For over 50 years, we have helped customers overcome fleet challenges and optimize their fleet programs. If you are considering using Merchants Fleet for your fleet needs, we encourage you to read these success stories to see the cost savings and efficiencies we have realized for our customers.


Aligning Lease Structure to Vehicle Application

The main challenge was cash flow and excessive costs. With a blanket open-end lease agreement encompassing its entire fleet, this company was limited by a lease structure that restricted cash flow and did not best suit its needs. With its previously contracted fleet management provider, the firm was leaving money on the table.

Leveraging FleetAssist

Many operational aspects of a business face strong scrutiny when two entities come together. This customer was charged with assimilating the cultures of both organizations under one fleet management directive without any additional resource allocation.

Reducing the Cost of Ownership

No matter the industry or type of business, finding new ways to better the bottom line is critical to long-term viability. This fleet manager was tasked with reducing the invested capital committed to the company’s fleet resources and had a goal of lowering the total vehicle cost of ownership by 10% over the course of 2 years.

Telematics and Organizational Alignment Lead to More Efficient Operations

Fuel and maintenance spend are typical targets, but finding ways to drive costs out requires organizational support. With a variance in corporate fleet strategy and operational direction, this case was not clear for our client. Working with a diverse team of decision makers, finding a solution all facets of the organization could agree upon was the biggest hurdle to overcome.

Reducing Fuel Spend and Increasing Driver Productivity

This client in particular was experiencing the negative effects of fluctuating fuel expenditures and needed solutions to promote cost savings initiatives. Like many similar businesses, they were looking to reduce fuel spending while simultaneously increasing driver productivity and ticket execution volume.

Leveraging Telematics to Improve Driver Behavior

In today’s world, every fleet manager has a common struggle: improving driver behaviors while reducing accident rates and costs. For this client, the problem was excessive. While they had attempted to institute a comprehensive safety strategy to empower its drivers with a safety-first mindset, it had not moved past the planning process.
