Our Structure

Become Part of the Team

Our people are the key to our success. We look for skilled individuals with an entrepreneurial spirit and the ability to thrive in a collaborative environment.

Working together toward common goals makes Penske a great place to work. Every day, we challenge our employees to find better ways of working by fostering a culture that empowers them to make a difference.

Support the Community

Individual Penske locations actively support neighborhood charities. Our associates contribute hundreds of thousands of dollars annually to the United Way, and when multiple hurricanes struck Florida and the Gulf Coast, we were there with trucks and fuel for emergency response teams.

Strength Through Diversity

We value different perspectives, approaches and backgrounds. Penske's Diversity Council leads the way by encouraging an environment that welcomes new points of view and respects individuality.

How Did We Get Here?

In just 40 years, Penske has gone from a three-location rental and lease business to a multibillion-dollar transportation services company with more than 1,000 locations spanning the globe.

We have led the industry with an unwavering commitment to customer service and innovation.

A Growing Vision

Roger Penske founded our company on December 1, 1969, after purchasing a car and light-truck rental and leasing business serving eastern Pennsylvania. We started with just three locations but, by 1981, had grown to 33 facilities staffed by 420 employees and generating annual sales of more than $40 million.

In 1982, we joined with the Hertz Truck Division to form Hertz-Penske Truck Leasing. The joint partnership acquired Goldston in 1983 and Leaseway Transportation's truck renting and leasing business in 1986. With 102 locations and 2,300 associates, our company generated annual revenues of $200 million.

In 1988, we purchased Hertz's remaining share of the joint venture and formed a partnership with General Electric that folded GE's Gelco Truck Leasing into Penske Truck Leasing Co., L.P.

Logistics Business Expands Worldwide

In 1995, we expanded our logistics business with the complete acquisition of Leaseway Transportation Corp. We began logistics operations in Europe in 1997 and delved further into that market with the 1998 purchase of Transportgroep van der Graaf. Also in 1998, we formed a joint venture with Cotia Trading to provide logistics services in South America. We acquired Cotia Trading's remaining interest in that company in 2005, when we also formed a joint venture with Victory Express to provide logistics services in Asia. In 2007, we bought Victory Express' remaining interest in the company.

A New Century

The turn of the century saw us develop fully into our role as a global industry leader. We purchased Canada's Rentway Ltd. in 2000 and Wilmington, Del.-based Rollins Truck Leasing in 2001. In 2004, we acquired the full-service truck leasing, rental, maintenance and logistics operations of AMI Leasing from Ford Motor Credit.

In early 2010, we continued our U.S. expansion efforts with the acquisition of Texas-based Bright Truck Leasing and Distribution, a privately owned full-service truck leasing, truck maintenance, rental, and logistics services provider. The acquisition added approximately 3,400 tractors, trucks and trailers to our fleet and several important truck leasing, truck rental and logistics customers.

Today, Penske Truck Leasing operates more than 200,000 vehicles across North America and we employ approximately 20,000 associates worldwide. Penske Logistics operates more than 335 locations and manages an estimated 19.1 million square feet of warehousing space worldwide. Together, our annual revenue is approximately $5.2 billion.

    I have been working at Penske Truck Leasing full-time (More than 5 years)


    Great starting company with programs straight out of college, and the ability to move up rather quickly if you are talented and willing to relocate. Pay is pretty average, with a decent sized performance based bonus at the end of every fiscal year.


    Very unorganized at times, hard to get your hands on equipment during some seasons of the year when equipment is tight or already on rent. Lots of political games and hoops to jump through to work your way up.

    Advice to Management

    Provide better support for your counters and locations. Don't get so caught up in what corporate demands vs what is actually achievable.
