Penske Truck Leasing and Penske Logistics plan to add approximately 3,300 positions in the U.S. and an additional 200 in Canada this year to meet increasing demand for its services, the company announced.

The announcement was made on Penske’s company blog.

The two division expect to be hiring for vehicle maintenance supervisors, technicians; customer service; sales; drivers; and logistics and supply chain positions.

“We’re pleased to continue this positive hiring trend at our North American operations in 2012,” said Ken Hurley, senior vice president of human resources for Penske Truck Leasing. “We look forward to adding new associates to our talented, diverse team.”
