Order Reprints

May 17, 2018—Penske Truck Leasing has completed its 1 millionth voice-directed preventative maintenance inspection using its recently deployed paperless technology.

Over the last year, Penske implemented its voice-directed preventive maintenance processes for its fleet of more than 270,000 vehicles.

Penske commemorated the milestone by honoring David Barba, a Phoenix-based technician, who performed the 1 millionth preventive maintenance inspection on a 2018 Freightliner Sleeper Tractor.

Penske's voice-directed preventive maintenance system provides its technicians everything they need at the point of repair — reducing wasted time, motion and manual keying. It taps a high-speed indoor and outdoor gigabit Wi-Fi network and uses mobile tablet devices for its technicians and industry-leading diagnostic tools.

The system provides voice prompts via a headset to direct technicians through a preventive maintenance inspection. It provides the ability to tailor inspections to the specific vehicle, its age, specifications and technologies.
