To my ARI friends and family:
The year 2021 has brought with it more social distancing and shutdowns, all in an effort to manage the COVID-19 pandemic. Through it all our ARI customers, drivers, and industry partners are constantly on my mind and in my heart.
While companies and organizations all over the world have dealt with shutdowns and secondary closures over the last few months, many of your businesses never closed. Your fleets helped keep the world moving forward. You may be even busier than ever, supporting essential drivers while navigating remote work and distancing hurdles. If you’ve been forced to make extremely difficult decisions for the long-term health of your organization, you’re not alone in that reality. Despite these challenges, there’s still critical work that needs to get done – and ARI’s people continue to stand by your side to help you accomplish that.
On behalf of ARI collectively, we are extremely grateful for the continued strength of our partnerships. We’re more focused than ever on your success, and continue to invest in ways to move forward together.
As science and medicine continues to advance in remarkable ways, I can only look forward: to the days when we can see each other again in the office or at the industry events we all look forward to. In the meantime, keep an eye out for our emails and social media posts with content developed digitally, all made with your needs in mind.
That brings us to the big question: What’s next?
Our next step is to help you address today’s concerns, while keeping a careful eye on tomorrow’s opportunities. One thing has not changed in 2021: We will continue supporting you in balancing short-term fleet decisions with long-term company objectives. That includes working with you when your objectives and goals may have changed in light of today’s challenges, and providing options and best practice approaches for both your capital and operating cost management needs.
And through it all, we’ll remain as transparent and open as we were before this pandemic, keeping communication clear and available.
Thank you again for the sacrifices you’re making to keep our neighborhoods safe and functioning. This is a difficult time for everyone, but it’s made easier by the people who are committed to keeping the world turning. ARI takes pride in being able to assist you through it all, and know that we are looking at a brighter future together.
I hope you and those close to you stay healthy and happy, and I hope we can see each other again soon.
