Penske Truck Leasing has announced the launch of its new connected fleet solutions.
The system, using a proprietary, device-neutral data platform, can connect its systems with virtually any truck and engine configuration or telematics service provider.
Noted Brian Hard, president and CEO of Penske Truck Leasing, “Our unique approach makes it easy for customers to connect their vehicles and share their vehicle data with us. We’ve designed these connected fleet solutions to improve vehicle uptime, safety and compliance, and help keep customers well-informed about their vehicles.”
Penske’s connected fleet solutions also is engineered to enable faster roadside assistance, call triage and improved vehicle maintenance through remote diagnostics, location data, and big data analytics.
The company is using its connected fleet solutions platform with more than 20,000 vehicles in its truck rental and logistics fleets and is adding customer vehicles daily. The remote diagnostics capability is also currently in use at Penske’s in-house 24/7 Roadside Assistance call center.
