The business world is full of unknowns. But there are a number of ways leasing can help operators minimise transportation related risks so they can focus on core competencies.
Leasing provides a lower upfront capital investment and predictable monthly payments.
Maintenance costs can be hard to predict, but they do make a difference. Leasing means you'll have one less thing to budget for.
Leasing also frees up capital for use in a company's core business. Many carriers prefer an operating lease which removes the debt from their balance sheets.
Properly maintained vehicles are safer vehicles. The Penske full-service lease includes maintenance throughout the contract. The telematics system constantly monitors kilometres, fuel burn, and engine hours and sends notifications when services are coming due. Driver habits can also be monitored with the telematics. This allows the operator to easily identify and address unwanted behaviours. Our professional trainers can work in-cab with individual drivers or lead group meetings to help send the right message.
If a truck isn't properly maintained, a carrier runs the risk of breakdowns, which can result in missed delivery windows and poor service. In addition to fees for late deliveries, a missed deadline can result in long-term consequences, and ultimately, lost customers.
If a breakdown occurs, Penske Truck Leasing provides roadside service and, in some cases, a replacement vehicle.
To optimise operations and efficiency, it is important to spec the right vehicle for the application. Penske has the experience and expertise in multiple industries to find the right equipment for the job.
A Penske partnership can help provide flexibility in the number of vehicles a company keeps. Whether it's new customers and unexpected growth, or just your busy season, you can easily and cost-effectively supplement your fleet with Penske rental trucks. Penske lease customers enjoy discounted rates on Penske truck rentals.
Penske Truck Leasing also monitors regulations, which helps companies ensure the equipment they are running is in compliance with state and federal regulations.
For many businesses, transportation is not the core focus. Leasing can reduce the amount of time they spend managing and monitoring the transportation side of the business. Penske Truck Leasing can do what we do best: take care of your fleet.
