Emrill in strategic partnership with Hertz

Through this deal, Emrill will receive the UAE’s youngest and safest car fleet of 180 vehicles comprising of large 60 seat buses, vans and Security 4x4 patrol vehicles. With the recent implementation of Vehicle Tracking, Defensive Driver Training, ENOC VIP Fuel Payments and a new fuel efficient fleet, Emrill has already witnessed enhanced vehicle utilization for pick-up and drop-off routes, decreased vehicle idle times and reduced transportation cost by up to 15%.
Jason Ruehland, Managing Director, Emrill said: “With the Hertz partnership, Emrill will not only reduce on lost time incidents in case of repairs, but will also receive serviced vehicles in well maintained conditions that enable reduced CO2 emissions and fuel consumption. We are proud to be in this partnership with Hertz and hold true to our Sustainability Strategy by reducing our Carbon footprint and further deliver cost savings for our clients.”
Both companies are united in their commitment to promoting road safety through a ‘one road to safety campaign’. The One Road to Safety initiative targets the behaviours of vehicle drivers and passengers alike. Drivers go through an assessed defensive driver training course to increase road safety awareness along with medical tests to ensure their fitness to drive. Passengers meanwhile are made aware through periodic campaigns to highlight the importance of wearing seat belts while driving and avoiding distractions while on the road. Emrill measures its driver safety standards by monitoring the number of own fault accidents per 100,000 kilometres driven.
With 21 branches across the UAE that enable close proximity for easy reach, dedicated recovery and technical vehicles, supported by state of the art maintenance facilities, Hertz will provide Emrill with 24/7 roadside assistance for breakdowns and service queries. Emrill pursued this collaboration in keeping with its corporate values and ongoing efforts for sustainability.
