The MOD’s Defence School of Transport has taken 14 MAN TGS tractor units and trailers on contract from Ryder.
The trucks will be based at the DST’s site at Normandy Barracks, Leconfield, East Yorkshire. Ryder recently supplied 138 trucks and tractor units, plus 47 trailers on a four year contract hire deal.
Sqn Ldr (Retd) Gavin Dalton, driver training squadron, senior specialist instructional officer, said: “The DST provides large goods vehicle driver training for all branches of the British armed forces with approximately 10,000 licences of varying categories being gained every year using the contracted fleet. The quality of service and support we receive from Ryder is second to none and ensures that we are always in a position to meet our training obligations.”
