Eyes on the Road Ahead – New Look, Enhanced Focus

You may have noticed that things are looking a little bit different around Donlen. As time has passed and the industry has changed, Donlen has changed as well in order to stay ahead of the curve and deliver superior service to our customers. Consequently, it only makes sense that as a fleet management company with a focus on the future, Donlen is adopting a more modern look, including a new logo and color scheme, with a strong focus on our connection to our parent company, Hertz.

While our look has changed, our commitment to our valued customers remains the same. Check out our blog post to learn more about our updated look, and stay tuned for next month’s edition of FridayFleet which will have a brand new design!
