READING, Pa., April. 9, 2013 — Penske Logistics has completed a significant upgrade of its enterprise-class data center that serves all of its supply chain customers. The multi-million dollar project, started last November, was recently concluded.
The data center was previously housed on-site at a Penske Logistics facility in Beachwood, Ohio. The new center is now located a few miles away off-site and has increased square footage available for future data center expansion.
"This new facility is staffed 24 hours a day by data center experts and provides state-of-the-art redundancy, security, cooling and power for our technology solutions," stated Tom McKenna, Senior Vice President of Logistics Engineering and Technology for Penske Logistics.
"Our company committed to this endeavor to better serve the needs of our customers with the next generation of technology infrastructure," he said. "Enhanced disaster recovery tools are an important part of that infrastructure. Our customers will also benefit from improved system performance that comes with the addition of advanced logistics production hardware."
This project was jointly executed by the Penske Logistics and Penske Truck Leasing Information Technology departments.
