PacLease recently held its semi-annual Service and Operations Summit in Nashville. The two-day event featured topics and presentations to further strengthen the PacLease network with attendance that represented nearly 80% of franchise groups in the U.S. and Canada. PacLease has more than 460 full-service leasing and rental locations.
The meeting luded topics such as the coming of electric vehicles and the sales/support efforts needed by the PacLease network to make the transition to EVs easier for customers. It also included presentations on the evolution and implementation of voice-guided technology for performing preventive maintenance.
With Kenworth and Peterbilt both offering battery electric medium and heavy-duty trucks, presentations were made on implementing EV infrastructure at PacLease locations, tooling and equipment, plus support for customers in applying for grant money to offset the added cost for an electric truck.
