GE Capital Fleet Services Launches On-site and Mobile Maintenance Support for its Truck Customers

08:00 EDT Monday, October 21, 2013

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (Business Wire) -- GE Capital Fleet Services today announced an agreement with Amerit Fleet Solutions, the leading U.S. provider of contract vehicle maintenance, to provide truck and specialty equipment fleets with two new, nationwide offerings through GE's TruckVantage fleet management service: on-site and mobile maintenance.

TruckVantage's new On-site Maintenance program brings highly skilled technicians into existing customer garages to provide on-site fleet maintenance and oversight. Services offered include maintenance and repairs for trucks, trailers and material handling equipment, as well as parts inventory management and DOT, OSHA and other environmental safety inspections.

TruckVantage Mobile Maintenance allows GE customers to access Amerit's Mobile Service Centers—fully customized “rolling garages” that can be deployed to easily serve fleet maintenance needs. Ideal for fleets with assets in remote locations, Mobile Maintenance allows clients to schedule repairs and preventative maintenance on-site at their facilities, eliminating the expense and downtime associated with transporting assets to other maintenance providers.

“This agreement is an important element of GE Capital Fleet Services' ability to offer a more comprehensive truck maintenance solution,” said Brad Hoffelt, senior vice president, general manager of products and services at GE Capital Fleet Services. “Through the Amerit on-site and mobile maintenance programs, customers can cut downtime, keep costs stable and predictable, and spend more time focusing on core operations.”

“Combining Amerit's proven success in deploying fleet maintenance service solutions anywhere in the U.S. with GE's current TruckVantage program creates a unique, comprehensive approach to solving the challenges many of the fleets in the U.S. face today,” said Dan Williams, CEO of Amerit Fleet Solutions.

As a single source, 24/7 maintenance and management solution, GE's TruckVantage program offers a myriad of services for truck fleets, including vehicle leasing and financing, fuel spend tracking, remarketing, flexible online reporting, and accident and safety tools such as Mobileye's collision avoidance system.
