“I will give examples of what Caterpillar is doing to execute our rental business model and how an intense focus on key rental metrics is the foundation for success in rental.”

Caterpillar’s dealers operate some of the largest rental businesses in the world, and also in China, where among its dealers is Lei Shing Hong Machinery, which operates a significant rental business.
