Penske creates ELD app for rental customers

PenskePenske Truck Leasing released an app for its truck rental and leasing customers with Hours of Service (HOS) functionality to meet the electronic logging device (ELD) mandate.

The new Penske Driver app is available for Android and iOS/Apple devices and connects to hardware in Penske’s rental trucks using Bluetooth. The app is integrally synchronized to meet ELD mandate requirements, the company says.

The app was custom built by Penske based on customer and driver research and is supported 24/7 by Penske’s in-house staff, the company says.

“As we announced in April, we have been working on a solution for our rental fleet related to hours of service. Connecting fleets means connecting drivers and providing them with the valuable tools they need to make their jobs easier,” explained Sherry Sanger, Penske’s senior vice president of marketing.

The Penske Driver app also enables truck drivers to:

  • Locate Penske Truck Leasing service, rental and fuel locations as well as other locations such as truck stops, CNG stations and public scales.
  • Access a vehicle’s recent service history.
  • Digitally submit fuel receipts with a form and receipt photo.

The new Penske Driver app is a companion to the Penske Fleet app for fleet managers, launched earlier this year.
