AmeriQuest Transportation Services – a provider of fleet management services, financial solutions and operational support services – announced it has relaunched its partnership with the Food Marketing Institute. AmeriQuest said the program, formerly known as FoodFleetXchange, will provide additional value-added programs, products and services to FMI members, assisting them in reducing fleet operating costs.
The Food Marketing Institute represents 1,250 food retailers and wholesalers comprised of large multistore chains, regional firms and independent supermarkets with a combined annual sales volume of $650 billion. These members now will be able to take advantage of the following services through the AmeriQuest program:
- Group purchasing: FMI members can save up to 20 percent on tires, parts and supplies with access to programs from more than 100 suppliers;
- Fleet planning and strategic financing: AmeriQuest assists companies with finding the optimal vehicle lifecycle and best financial structure for their fleets;
- Used trucks: ameriquestusedtrucks.com has a large inventory of low-mileage late-model used trucks. Members also have a resource for the sale and remarketing of its used inventory; and
- National breakdown service: FMI members benefit from access to a 24/7 call center for tire and mechanical breakdowns. FMI has negotiated an exclusive rate for the breakdown service.
