NationaLease, a full-service truck leasing organization, has expanded its network of independent trucking companies with the addition of three new companies that have been approved for full membership: Southwest Leasing, headquartered in Dallas; LTG Lonestar NationaLease, based in Grapevine, Texas; and Location NRJ Leasing of Drummondville, Quebec, Canada.
In order to qualify for full membership to NationaLease, each company was required to grow their leasing organization to at least 50 units in full-service leasing or contract maintenance. “We are very proud to welcome these three exemplary companies into our network and consider each to be a valuable asset to the organization,” says Gene Scoggins, NationaLease president.
As a full member in NationaLease, each company can take advantage of the organization’s combined purchasing power while maintaining its independent business status. NationaLease member companies also extend Emergency Road Service to each other at 600 locations, providing repair, fuel and substitute vehicles 24 hours a day, seven days a week, enabling trucks traveling across the country to be assured of emergency services outside their normal service area. Other benefits of NationaLease membership include access to consulting services, industry-related seminars and education, and networking opportunities.
The developing member program, started in 2002, helps truck leasing companies’ personnel learn the leasing industry while becoming stronger and more effective in their businesses. Since its inception, 40 companies have joined NationaLease.
