Road Runner divisional director Jackie Wright said: “We’ve listened to our customers and are thrilled that we can make trading easier for Road Runner brokers.
“Brokers already working with us were keen to register for their new online account in preparation for our launch, indicating their enthusiasm to take advantage of the new platform benefits. Our vehicle management portal is market-leading and an enhancement to this sector that’s long overdue.”
