Mercedes-Benz CharterWay offers services and mobility from a single source, covering every aspect of procuring, servicing and managing commercial vehicles from Mercedes-Benz.
A lot of companies these days are focusing on rental as a way of acquiring commercial vehicles, and this is becoming a more and more popular option. There are many reasons for this: it may be having to deal with shorter and shorter order terms, with order peaks or in order to safeguard the company's financial position. Industry experts predict that the proportion of rental vehicles will rise even more in the future, since many fleet operators are increasingly using rental as an active fleet-management tool as the importance of flexibility in this sector continues to grow.
The answer to this trend is called CharterWay. It has a fleet of 8,000 trucks from Mercedes-Benz and FUSO as well as trailers. In addition to the standard vehicles for long-distance haulage and short-radius distribution, the CharterWay rental pool also encompasses a wide range of sector-specific vehicles, for example for waste disposal services, for the construction site sector or for use as an HGV instruction vehicle. The vehicles are available for short-term hire from upwards of only 24 hours, but also for several weeks or months, according to the customer's needs. If required, Mercedes-Benz CharterWay will also find a driver. Renters benefit from the largest service network of all manufacturers, in Germany and across Europe.
ServiceLeasing: full service from one source
Another offer is ServiceLeasing: Customers take delivery of a vehicle configured according to their own specification and are able to cover all requirements, from procurement and vehicle management to repair and maintenance and even the return of the vehicle at a guaranteed residual value, with a single agreement and fixed-rate monthly payments.
The close links between the vehicle manufacturer and the manufacturer's bank mean that the advantages of CharterWay's full-service leasing service can be exploited to the full. By opting for this complete solution, customers are able to minimise the time and effort spent on vehicle management, enjoy maximum financial flexibility and reduce the operator risks.
