A Good Idea Delivered by a Skillful Business Team
Patriot Fleet Solutions was born from a conversation. Creating the best Fleet Management Solution was the passion. A group of fleet experts were sitting at a conference table, discussing how to best help the fleet market solve their most troubling challenges. As the discussion progressed, the enthusiasm grew—and what started as a simple question became the answer that many small to mid-size fleet owners need.
There is strength in numbers, which is why Patriot Fleet Solutions, a buying network designed to aid small and mid-size trucking fleets, can offer its members a host of benefits. Fleet Management Solutions that provide a wide range of benefits help manage the fleet. The executive team has worked in every sector of the fleet industry, from fuel cards and payroll cards to insurance and service. Using this knowledge and experience, the team developed a plan that included key money-saving partnerships for fleets, that they normally could not obtain because of their size.
Patriot Fleet Solutions operates on the belief that this country was built on the backs of small to medium business owners who provide much of the services and products we receive today. The primary goal of Patriot is to provide these companies with resources that will give them the chance to save and grow. The small to medium size business owners will benefit greatly with this suite of Fleet Management Solutions.
Our team is led by these highly respected executives, who have successfully steered numerous businesses to the top of their industries.
