Penske Truck Leasing has opened a new consumer and commercial truck rental, full-service truck leasing and contract truck fleet maintenance facility near one of the busiest ports of entry in the United States. Penske's newest location at 8710 Avenida de la Fuente in San Diego is located approximately one mile from the Otay Mesa Port of Entry.
"The Otay Mesa area is a fast-growing transportation market and we are excited to be the first full-service transportation company to open in this part of San Diego," explained Rick Pytlik, senior vice president for Penske's western region. "We look forward to serving existing and new customers from our state-of-the-art and largest San Diego-area location."
Penske in Otay Mesa sits on 3 acres and is 23,634-square-feet. It's Penske's largest facility in the region. It's also the first Penske facility in the Southwest to have a box repair shop and the third Penske used truck center in the area. With eight truck bays, the new facility is ready to serve the multitude of companies who are transporting goods in the expanding hub.
