Hertz Equipment Rental Joins the SmartEquip Network for Fleet Support

Hertz Global Holdings, Inc., Park Ridge, N.J., announced that Hertz Equipment Rental Corporation (HERC) has joined the SmartEquip Network. The network directly supports worldwide equipment suppliers and national and independent operators of equipment. It is designed to help increase the return on fleet investment, while also helping to reduce the cost of service, management, and procurement for equipment owners and manufacturers alike.

“SmartEquip is the benchmark for equipment fleet support and streamlined service, parts procurement, and inventory management in the industry,” commented Gerry Plescia, HERC president “SmartEquip technology will support Hertz’s companywide focus on efficiency, as we also strive to deliver the highest level of service and equipment reliability to our customers, ” he added.

The majority of HERC’s suppliers are already active participants on the SmartEquip Network, including John Deere, JLG, Multiquip, and Wacker. The company plans to go live in all of its U.S.- and Canada-based locations prior to the end of the year. “Hertz has always distinguished itself by setting the highest standard in operational workflow and procurement,” says Alexander Schuessler, chairman and CEO of SmartEquip. “We are very pleased to have become part of this culture, and to help raise efficiency levels, especially during these challenging economic times.”
