FleetNet America, LLC announced that it has begun the development of a national towing and recovery certification program that is expected to be launched later this year. "We have begun the actual program development and have recently hired James Williams (formally a director with Road One) to lead and manage this project," said Oren Summer, FleetNet America's president. "When completed, this program will provide FleetNet's customers with nationwide access to certified towing and recovery providers, allowing them to receive superior towing and recovery service at competitive prices.""Our customers tell us that they want to use towing companies who provide good service, project a positive image, adhere to state and federal regulations and who maintain appropriate insurance levels," said Mr. Summer. "In response to this customer need, FleetNet is developing a database of certified towing and recovery vendors who meet these standards while charging a fair and reasonable price."FleetNet is a third-party vehicle maintenance company that coordinates scheduled and nonscheduled service to truck fleets, owner-operators, original equipment truck manufacturers and after-market equipment providers. FleetNet receives nationwide service calls regarding on-the-road breakdowns at its 24-hour-a-day, 365-day-a-year call center in Cherryville, NC. According to the company, FleetNet's call coordinators, who average more than 20 years of truck maintenance and repair experience, utilize a network of over 60,000 truck repair vendors to assist in providing vehicle repair and emergency road service throughout the continental United States and Canada.
