Truck leasing organization NationaLease has approved Diversified Truck Leasing as its newest member. Diversified Truck Leasing is headquartered in Billings, Mont.

"Since its application in December 2005 to become a developing member of NationaLease, Diversified Truck Leasing has grown their leasing operation to more than 50 vehicles in lease, rental, and contract maintenance, all under the direction of its President and CEO Jay Foley," said Gene Scoggins, president of NationaLease. "We consider Diversified to be a valuable asset to the NationaLease network of independent truck leasing companies."

Diversified Truck Leasing provides local, regional, and national coverage and comprehensive roadside assistance service, with more than 30,000 preferred vendors. Last year, the company received the Leading Initiative Award from NationaLease for its fleet growth and maintenance of high member standards, as well as its leadership, commitment, and best industry practices. It is a member of the Truck Rental and Leasing Association.

As a full member in NationaLease, Diversified Truck Leasing can take advantage of the organization's combined purchasing power, while maintaining its independent business status. NationaLease member companies also extend emergency road service to each other at 600 locations, providing repair, fuel, and substitute vehicles 24/7. NationaLease's National Account Group negotiates nationwide contracts with national suppliers on behalf of member companies, as well as national account marketing and management. Other benefits of NationaLease membership include access to consulting services, industry-related seminars and education, and networking opportunities.
