Penske's closed-loop dedicated trucking operation for Novelis shuttles aluminum coils from Oswego, New York to automotive stamping plants in Michigan, and then transports the aluminum scrap back to Oswego to be recycled and formed into new coils. The entire process runs 24 hours a day, 365 days a year – with a loaded Penske truck heading out on the road approximately every 40 minutes.
“We're sincerely honored to be recognized by Novelis with this award," said Marc Althen, president of Penske Logistics. “We thank Novelis for their business and spirit of partnership in working together. I'm especially thankful for the award as it recognizes the efforts of our talented team of safe, professional truck drivers, staff, and management team, who support our operation every day."
With increasing fuel efficiency standards, lightweighting demands and the evolving mobility ecosystem, automakers are turning to Novelis aluminum for innovative, sustainable solutions that enable the next generation of vehicles. Many of the world's premier brands rely on aluminum made by Novelis to help design the safest, strongest and most durable cars and trucks.
