We have helped companies all across North America. Our extensive travels have shown us that no two fleets are the same, but that each fleet has something in common that can be improved within their organization. Here is just a small sample of clients that we have worked with.
Bulkley Trucking & Associates: "Darry is a true professional and will tell you the truth. He will give you the real view of whatever problems you may have and will advise you of a cost effective permanent solution. Darry can find the solution and use his contacts to bridge the gap. I highly recommend him. His experience in the field with real hands on knowledge base is excelled by no one."
Tim Winchester, Maintenance Manager
Penske Truck Leasing: "Congratulations on being elected to the Chairmanship of TMC! I am very happy for you, and am glad that your peers have recognized you in this way. You have been a tireless servant of the industry throughout your long career, and you will now have even more positive influence on us from your new position. If anyone can get the message out that we need to treat our technicians as if our own success depended on them, you will. If anyone can assist in creating a track of progress for the next generation of fleet managers, you can."

Industry Development Manager
Penske Truck Leasing L. P.
Arriba Equipment Services: "There is a Yiddish (Jewish) word for what you did. You are known as a "mench". It means a person who always does the right thing for someone else without anyone telling them to do so. They are far and few between and held in high regard, especially to Jewish people. However, you don't have to be Jewish to be a mench. You just have to be one, and it usually comes naturally. It is a pleasure to know you, Darry."
Allan Berger, Vice President
CTI, Cement Transport Inc: "We came to realize that we needed a national-class fleet management experience to put the process in motion." "Darry Stuart of DWS Fleet Management Services hit the ground running and is already producing very good results."

He has a unique ability to bring up morale; he has the entire shop singing as they work." "Considering the 2700 miles between Boston and Tucson was a real leap of faith for us to engage DWSFM.

Penske Truck Leasing: “Accentuating the positive with the negative is truly an art well learned and you never stop. I remember brainstorming solutions that redirected our previous company into the competitive world economy. As a youngster it made little sense to me. It now makes sense. The business if I may mimic you is indeed about personalities. Put a process in place and the numbers will follow. When difficulties arose, the team was always driven by the following, why did we fail? What we learned from it? Let’s proceed with change! No pin the tail on the donkey. Simply find the solution and have fun doing it.”
Ron Stillings, Regional Service Manager
