Why Choose Mercury 2017-08-09T21:34:53+00:00
Mercury is unique among consulting firms serving the fleet industry. We combine specialized fleet management expertise and resources, unparalleled industry experience, independence and objectivity, and a proven track record of performance that is unmatched by fleet leasing companies, the small (often sole proprietorship) consulting firms that tend to work in this industry, and the large, general management consulting and business process outsourcing (BPO) firms.

Specialization in Fleet Management

Mercury specializes in fleet industry consulting, research, and training. Unlike generalist management consulting and BPO firms that may take on a client engagement whose scope includes fleet management issues, we do one thing and one thing only – we serve the fleet industry.

Independence and Objectivity

Mercury is an independent, employee-owned consulting firm. We do not have commercial ties to any other business entity and we are not a value-added reseller or channel partner to any supplier of products or services in the fleet industry.

Breadth and Depth of Technical Experience

Our consultants tackle challenges and opportunities that require a degree of technical sophistication and analytical rigor that simply cannot be found in most other fleet consulting firms. We focus on results and we welcome the opportunity to implement our recommendations.
