Safe Driving a Top Priority at Penske

Penske Logistics and its 2,900 truck drivers behind the wheel make safety their top priority every day.


Penske drivers demonstrate their commitment to safety while making on-time deliveries to meet our customers’ needs.

“Safety is our No. 1 concern at Penske,” said Stanley Stone, vice president of safety for Penske Logistics. “We strive to keep our drivers, our customers and other motorists safe on the highways. We rely on our committed drivers to practice safe-driving concepts and techniques that they learn on the job and through various trainings.”

Many Penske drivers credit professional driver training course Smith System for their safe-driving skills. Smith System is the nation’s leading provider of collision avoidance driver training, helping drivers see, think and react to driving challenges through classroom and hands-on training.

Penske drivers all over the country are certified Smith System instructors, sharing their expertise and passion for safety with both new and experienced fleet drivers.

Romulus, Mich.-based Penske driver Mike Reece has been a Smith System instructor since 2005. He is a firm believer in the benefits of the popular training course.

“Smith System puts into a clear formula how you can be the safest, most proactive driver with quick reaction times in all driving situations,” said Reece, a local driver who delivers medical supplies. “After you implement these techniques over a period of time, safe driving becomes second nature. I follow Smith System in my own car, too.”

Would you like to drive for a company that emphasizes the importance of safety? Penske is currently hiring local and short route CDL truck drivers across the U.S. The company offers competitive wages and a wide range of benefits. Penske is an Equal Opportunity Employer.

Editor’s Note: In recognition of National Truck Driver Appreciation Week Sept. 17-21, Penske is celebrating our 2,900 dedicated drivers who ensure safe, prompt and seamless delivery of our customer’s goods while maintaining the highest level of safety and customer service.
