Our History by the Numbers

Founded in 1944, NationaLease is the largest full service truck leasing company in North America.

Ten years after the end of the Great Depression and one year before the end of World War II, the owners of 17 independent truck leasing companies met in Chicago to combine their efforts and share ideas in a new organization calling itself the National Truck Leasing System.

Over 70 years later, NationaLease is thriving.

  • More than 900 locations throughout the U.S. and Canada.
  • Customer fleets combined exceed 155,000 tractors, trucks, and trailers.
  • Annual combined revenue of over $4 billion.
  • Unprecedented purchasing power.
  • An over 90% industry-leading customer retention rate.
