A new supplier group has been formed for daily rental companies that supply fleet customers through epyx’s 1link Hire Network e-commerce platform.
The group is set to gather for regular meetings at epyx’s head offices, with the first already having taken place, to share their thoughts and ideas on best use of 1link Hire Network.
Major fleets that use the platform are also welcome at the meetings, creating a forum that is thought to be unique in the hire sector for customers and suppliers to open new dialogues.
Ken Trinder, head of business development at epyx, said: “There is a strong community ethos designed into all our 1link platforms and Hire Network is no exception.
“The Supplier Group provides a platform where the key parties within the daily rental supply chain can meet and discuss positively how to balance the needs of both the demand side fleets and the supply side rental companies.”
Trinder said that the tone of the initial meeting had been very positive, with several worthwhile ideas for enhancements to the platform being discussed.
