With technology evolving at a rapid pace in the transportation industry, a growing number of fleet operators are looking for telematics and onboard technology solutions that help increase visibility into their daily operations, with hopes of identifying and correcting any fleet inefficiencies.
Penske Truck Leasing has established an onboard technology consulting group within its existing operations. The group was created as a value-added service to help Penske’s customers to address the proliferation of technology choices and questions fleet operators have about selecting, evaluating, implementing, and using onboard systems. Penske takes a device-neutral approach when helping its customers evaluate on-board systems.
