Penske Truck Leasing is building on its Penske Driver mobile app, with remote service check-in capabilities.
The new feature, the company says, offers commercial drivers more convenience and speed, and also supports social distancing by remotely checking in vehicles for preventive maintenance or repairs.
As a Covid-19 measure, this builds on other initiatives such as posting more staff outside locations to direct customers to designated parking and pickup areas, and increasing sanitizing efforts for vehicles and facilities alike.
The app was launched in 2017, and can be used to log hours of service in rental vehicles, locate Penske facilities and truck stops, access vehicle service history, digitally submit fuel receipts, or submit roadside assistance requests.
