FedEx recently announced Saul Lerma, President and Owner of Lerma Transport Inc., as the 2014 Entrepreneur of the Year! Saul began his FedEx Ground business in 2000 and has grown to operate 7 daily routes and vehicles while managing 9 employees. Lerma Transport Inc. previously won the western regional award in 2011.
FedEx recognized Saul and his business for his impeccable safety record and implementation of safety programs for the entire terminal. Saul is also a community leader, providing safety seminars for the entire transportation community in Yuma, Arizona.
Saul came to us in early 2013 when he was looking for a new work truck. Through the years he has been one of our loyal customers. Here’s what he had to say about his experience with us:
The last four vehicles I added to our fleet were purchased through Allegiant Partners Inc. I can assuredly say that without strategic and insightful business relationships like the one you have spearheaded with Lerma Transport Inc. that reaching the level of success I have seen would not be possible… I recall when you helped me consolidate several loans I had open with other finance companies to help me increase the bottom line for my company and saved Lerma Transport Inc. money by reducing our monthly payment and freeing up cash-flow.
