NAPLES, Fla., April 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Hertz Equipment Rental Corporation ( hertzequip.com), a wholly owned subsidiary of The Hertz Corporation (NYSE: HTZ), has been awarded a new contract with the U.S. Communities Government Purchasing Alliance™ (U.S. Communities™), continuing their five year partnership for an additional three years.

Hertz Equipment Rental will continue its partnership with the U.S. Communities Government Purchasing Alliance(TM) (U.S. Communities) for an additional three years following a new contract signing.

Lois Boyd, President of Hertz Equipment Rental Corporation, said: "We have been working with government agencies for more than 30 years, providing rental equipment for times when ownership may not make financial sense. We are pleased to continue our collaboration with the U.S. Communities Government Purchasing Alliance and combine our government experience, knowledge and service into a program specifically geared towards meeting the equipment needs of government agencies."

The exclusive contract was awarded through a competitive tender process conducted by the lead public agency, North Carolina State University, a U.S. Communities Advisory Board member.
