Penske Picks Chevron’s Delo Brand for 200,000 Trucks
October 2, 2006
Chevron Products Co. has announced that Penske Truck Leasing has been selected as its sole North American lubricant supplier. Penske Truck Leasing will entrust the lubrication needs of more than 200,000 Class 6-8 trucks,
operating in North America, to the Chevron Delo brand.
Penske Truck Leasing will use members of the Chevron Delo product family, including its flagship Delo 400 Multigrade SAE 15W-40 engine oil.
Under the agreement, Chevron will provide Delo lubricants, solutions and market knowledge to more than 700 Penske Truck Leasing locations across North America.
“We considered many factors in selecting Chevron as our lubricants supplier,” said Marc Althen, senior vice president, Administration & Facilities, Penske Truck Leasing. “We needed a supplier that has proven the quality of its products on the road and the ability to provide exceptional service levels. We also sought a supplier with expertise related to the complicated issues surrounding the new emissions regulations.”
“Penske makes this choice at a time when the transportation industry is looking to suppliers for added value in the form of reduced operating costs and expert consultancy – Chevron people and products have a long history and proven track record of helping customers successfully address their fleet maintenance goals and objectives,” said Mike Dargento, global commercial sector manager for Chevron.
