PGT Trucking has chosen Penske Truck Leasing to provide comprehensive fleet maintenance solutions, allowing PGT to streamline its resources on driving innovative and sustainable solutions in the transportation industry.
PGT is a multi-service transportation firm offering flatbed, dedicated, international, and specialized services. Last year, it announced it intends to lease 100 Nikola Tre heavy-duty fuel cell electric vehicles, and the company working with Locomation on its automated platooning concept.
By working with Penske for extensive maintenance solutions, PGT will provide advanced repair options, simplify roadside service, and reduce maintenance downtime for its drivers.
Improved analytics will provide data for more accurate preemptive maintenance. PGT’s customers will also benefit from the company’s enhanced reliability, increased capacity and improved efficiency as a result of the new partnership.
“As part of our Future of Flatbed program, PGT is committed to implementing strategic partnerships, like our new relationship with Penske, that will expand our service offerings and reimagine transportation solutions,” said Gregg Troian, PGT Trucking president. “We are confident that the addition of Penske’s fleet maintenance program will contribute to PGT’s goal of providing an enhanced driver experience.”
Penske Truck Leasing will provide on-site maintenance at five PGT-owned locations, 24/7 roadside assistance nationwide, mobile roadside maintenance services, and access to Penske’s expansive network of more than 880 maintenance locations across North America.
PGT and its drivers will also tap into Penske’s digital customer experience tools that include mobile apps and a portal to streamline internal processes and fleet management.
“We’re very pleased to begin this new relationship with PGT Trucking,” said Art Vallely, President, Penske Truck Leasing. “PGT has a strong reputation in the marketplace for quality, performance, and customer service. We look forward to supporting PGT’s drivers and fleet with the latest equipment, maintenance, and technologies available.”
