Ryder takes delivery of 19 Navistar CNG trucks

Jason Cannon June 20, 2013

Ryder System, Inc. has begun to take delivery of 39 light- and medium-duty compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicles, our sister site, Hard Working Trucks, reported. 

The fleet will be the first of its kind for rent or lease in the U.S.

The vehicles include 20 Greenkraft cab-over vehicles with 6.0-liter General Motors natural gas engines and 19 Navistar International TranStar trucks with Cummins Westport ISL G engines.

The 39 new light- and medium-duty vehicles represent an expansion of Ryder’s 300 plus heavy duty natural gas vehicle fleet.

Kevin Keene, Sales Director for Navistar, says the TranStars were developed specifically for Ryder.

The CNG trucks range in gross vehicle weight from 16,000 to 33,000 pounds and are available for lease or rent from Ryder in California for use in metro/city delivery applications.
