400 tractor units for Ryder fleet

Ryder is refreshing its rental fleet with 400 new Euro 6 tractor units together with 350 new trailers.

The Euro 6 vehicles include six-by-two tractor units from DAF, Mercedes, MAN and Iveco. Trailers include 200 curtainsiders, 100 reefers and 50 box trailers.

This year’s investment in new assets follows the company’s purchase of nearly 1,000 Euro 5 derogated vehicles in 2014.

David Hunt, vice president and managing director Ryder Europe, said: “This latest investment in new assets will endow Ryder with one of the largest and most comprehensive Euro 6 fleets in the country enabling our rental customers to have access to the benefits of this new technology.”
