Our History

Driving Success in the Commercial Trucking Industry

President and CEO Doug Clark founded AmeriQuest in 1996 with a vision of uniting the independent commercial trucking industry. He recognized that consolidation would drive out independent companies unless they found new ways to compete in the marketplace.

We initially achieved success by bringing private fleets and carriers together in a new type of group purchasing organization. By aggregating buying power, we have been able to deliver volume discount pricing on the tires, parts, and supplies our members need to maintain their transportation programs. Technology seamlessly integrates this process with over 100 suppliers and thousands of local dealers for paperless efficiency and accuracy. This business model, known as the Collective Business SystemTM, was patented in 2001.

Today we work with over 2,000 of the top fleets and suppliers in the industry. Our services have expanded to include equipment financing, logistics consulting, and remarketing services. We have also acquired several companies that offer additional value to our customers:

  • CURE / Independent Contractor Leasing & Maintenance / Acquired 2010
  • NationaLease / Full Service Leasing / Acquired 2006
  • Corcentric / Financial Process Automation / Acquired 2002

In every branch of our business, AmeriQuest is dedicated to driving costs out of commercial trucking. We create unprecedented savings and efficiencies so that our customers can stay competitive. And we back all our services with deep expertise and proven integrity as a leader in the industry.
