NationaLease was founded in 1944 by a group of independent 17 truck leasing companies who came together as a new organization, National Truck Leasing System.
Their combined efforts help the company grow and by 1949, just 5 years later, they were 25 affiliates serving 135 cities.
By 1955, their number of affiliates reaches 57 with 20,000 leased trucks as part of their leasing system.
In 1961, the first National Truck Leasing System franchise was introduced and 4 year later, in 1965, NationaLease was born.
In 2006, AmeriQuest merged with NationaLease to bring the number of locations to over 700.
Today, NationaLease has grown to over 900 locations in the United States and Canada. The combined customer fleets is more than 155,000 trucks, trailers, and tractors.
