“We have seen a continued migration of Penske Truck Rental customers from the Northeast and Midwest parts of the U.S. into these areas,” said Don Mikes, Penske senior vice president of rental.
Penske Truck Rental, based in Reading, Pa., has created a series of infographics to complement the list. The main infographic can be seen below.
