Penske Truck Leasing Joins TechForce Foundation's Campaign
Nov. 27, 2018—Penske Truck Leasing is joining the TechForce Foundation's efforts to recruit the next generation of truck fleet maintenance technicians by serving as an early adopter in the foundation's FutureTech Success campaign.
With a North America truck fleet of over 298,000 vehicles, and a workforce of approximately 8,000 people, Penske Truck Leasing is working with TechForce Foundation to help address an industry-wide employment shortage of truck maintenance technicians.
TechForce's recent assessment shows the trucking industry needs nearly 300,000 new technicians over the next 10 years to meet demand.
In addition to its financial contribution, Penske Truck Leasing will take part in campaign marketing materials and advertising campaigns, while also sharing campaign content on Penske social media channels. Penske will also sit on the campaign's National Leadership Cabinet; participate in the FutureTech video series titled: "When Techs Rock, America Rolls" to highlight Penske's best practices; and join the foundation in speaking events at schools nationwide.
