ABR Staff Writer Published 08 May 2015

Commercial fleet management company Ryder System will be deploying more than 1,000 new automatic transmission trucks to expand its North American rental fleet.


The move is aimed at meeting the increasing demand from customers for improving fleet performance and driver job satisfaction.

Customers will be able to avail the benefits of automated transmission technology and enhanced fuel economy.

With smoother gear shifts, advanced safety features and different driving modes to accommodate different terrains and applications, the easy-to-operate transmissions also improves the experience for drivers.

Ryder Rental Operations vice president Richard Mohr said: "With this investment in automatic transmission vehicles, we are helping customers address critical business priorities - fleet efficiency, driver retention, and recruiting.

"This is one more way we are demonstrating our commitment to maximizing the performance of our customers' fleets, while providing the flexibility and convenience of a rental solution."
