Penske Truck Rental has opened its sixth location in Australia with the launch of a second Brisbane-area branch in Lytton.
Co-located with Penske Australia, the Lytton facility allows for expanded truck rental and leasing services in south-eastern Queensland.
“We started the Australian truck rental business back in 2014 with just 20 prime movers, and the Brisbane fleet has quadrupled in size since then,” said Adrian Beach, general manager of Penske Truck Leasing.
“The steady growth we’ve seen across our operations in Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, and Perth will put us close to 300 trucks before the end of the year,” said Beach.
“The existing Wacol facility continues to be a great base to service our customers in western Brisbane, and we’re now able to offer a new location that is ideal for those north of the city and near the Port of Brisbane.
“We’re very excited to set up shop on this side of town, where we can grow our existing relationships and start some new ones as well.
“Throughout these strange and uncertain times, we’ve been able to access equipment and support fleets both large and small with short-term rental and long-term leasing solutions that do not require capital investment.
Beach said Penske’s portfolio of Western Star and MAN trucks will be further bolstered with the new product arriving later this year.
“We have heavy rigids and prime movers spec’d to handle all sorts of different trailer combinations.
“Thanks to our strong OEM partnerships, we have the right fleet mix to help all our customers keep their businesses moving forward.”
