Penske Truck Leasing announced it opened a new facility in Essex Junction, Vt., to offer full-service truck leasing and contract truck fleet maintenance services to its consumer and commercial truck rental customers.

The facility is equipped with Penske’s proprietary digital and voice-directed truck fleet preventive maintenance process and connected fleet solutions, a value-added resource to help customers address issues and options related to onboard technology systems such as ELDs, telematics and onboard cameras, according to the Reading, Pa.-based company.

“The new facility also allows us to expand into Saturday hours, which is another value-add for customers and prospects in the region,” Tyler Hard, senior vice president for Penske’s Northeast Region, said in a release.

It is about 4,000 square feet and sits on 1.6 acres. It has three truck service bays and is located roughly 5 miles from Burlington International Airport and 3 miles off of Interstate 89.

Penske ranks No. 15 on the Transport Topics Top 100 list of the largest for-hire carriers in North American and No. 8 on the TT Top 50 list of the largest logistics companies. — Transport Topics
