“Pense Truck Leasing has purchased a significant number of our trucks over the years, so we’re honoured to share this important milestone with them.”

Headquarted in Reading, Pennsylvania, Penske Truck Leasing operates 300,00 vehicles and serves customers in more than 1,000 locations in North and South America, Europe, Australia and Asia.
