Enterprise Truck Rental announced it is celebrating a milestone of 500 branches across North America, with 60 locations opened in the past year alone.
Opening at least one branch weekly for 60 consecutive weeks, Enterprise said it continues to expand its footprint to meet rising demand for seasonal, project-based and e-commerce delivery rentals, as well as vehicles for personal truck rental needs. The business manages a fleet of trucks and vans to support industries such as moving and storage, final mile, construction, and telecommunications, among others.
"Despite nationwide supply chain shortages and other challenges across the industry, our truck business has seen a strong uptick in demand throughout the global pandemic — largely driven by the rise of online shopping and home delivery services," said Mike Pugh, corporate VP, Enterprise Truck Rental. "We’re proud to expand access to our truck rental services throughout North America to best serve our customers’ needs."
From its beginnings in 1999 in Southern California, Enterprise expanded to 100 locations by 2007. Since then, the business has grown its location count by 400% with 500 branches throughout the U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico, according to the company's news release.
Enterprise Truck Rental’s journey toward 500 branch locations resulted in three concurrent openings in Greenville, North Carolina, Newark, New Jersey, and Rogers, Arkansas.
"There was actually a three-way tie for Enterprise Truck Rental’s 500th location, which speaks to our fast-paced growth over the past two years," said Pugh. "Our business is scaling fast — and our expert teams have done a great job with managing the demand while continuing to provide flexible, efficient and reliable transportation solutions to our customers."
