How Commercial Vehicle OEMs Can Build Fleet Loyalty

In a complex industry with vast dealer networks and multiple distribution channels, commercial vehicle original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) often struggle to connect directly with their fleet customers. Building fleet loyalty is no easy feat, requiring tight alignment with dealers to deliver consistency and automation.

Many OEMs are surprised to learn that the payments process—not promotions or other schemes—is among the most powerful loyalty builder in this industry. Why? Because national account payment programs remove friction from the buying process by offering protection through contract price and purchase policy enforcement, while giving fleets consolidated billing. Increasingly, these types of payments programs are becoming table stakes in the aftermarket parts game.
