Kenworth Truck Company is offering a program with the National Joint Powers Alliance (NJPA) that expands sales opportunities for new Kenworth Class 6, 7 and 8 chassis to more than 50,000 NJPA members throughout the United States and Canada.
NJPA creates national cooperative contract purchasing solutions on behalf of its member agencies, which include government, education and non-profit agencies. Cooperative contract use is a growing trend for governmental purchases thanks to its competitively awarded contracts, simple process, and time and money saving benefits.
As part of the NJPA bid process, responses from truck manufacturing and supply companies are evaluated against multiple criteria to assure member agencies get the best value when making purchase decisions. The criteria included considerations such as variety of products and services offered, marketplace success, pricing, and value added attributes, the organization says.
“This joint effort with NJPA provides an excellent opportunity for government agencies and municipalities to purchase Kenworth’s full lineup of heavy- and medium-duty trucks. This includes our Kenworth T880 vocational flagship and Kenworth T680 on-highway leader, in addition to the dependable and versatile Kenworth T270 and T370 medium duty models with expanded capabilities for vocational and municipal customers,” says Kurt Swihart, Kenworth marketing director.
NJPA member agencies interested in purchasing Kenworth trucks may contact their nearest Kenworth dealer.
