As part of its latest investment in new rental assets, Ryder has introduced a wide range of Euro 6 tractor units to its nationwide rental fleet. The new Euro 6 rental tractors are high specification, big cab 6×2 units from DAF, Mercedes, MAN and Iveco. All of the new tractor units have telematics capability as standard.
In preparing for the introduction of Euro 6, Ryder has undertaken a significant programme of training and investment in technology to support its customers. Ryder sales staff have each received up to six days dedicated Euro 6 training to enable them to assist customers in making the correct choices on specification and rental options to suit their operational needs. A new supporting customer care video has also been produced by Ryder to assist customers in getting the best from Euro 6, and to deal with the specialised demands of the new technology.
Across Ryder’s nationwide workshop network the company has invested significantly (£0.5million) in Euro 6 diagnostics, and service staff have received extensive specialised training. This is enabling all Ryder service locations to service and maintain Euro 6 vehicles with immediate effect.
David Hunt, Vice President and Managing Director Ryder Europe, said: “We’re delighted to be offering our customers the opportunity to rent Euro 6 tractors from a range of leading marques. These state of the art new vehicles offer excellent fuel efficiency, driver comfort and all come with telematics.
“With the introduction of these new tractors Ryder will have one of the largest Euro 6 fleets in the country enabling us to bring the benefits of the new technology, and Ryder’s extensive operational and service experience, to customers throughout the UK. Our significant associated investment in Euro 6 training and service equipment also allows us to service and maintain Euro 6 vehicles across our UK location network, which we believe is a unique proposition for an independent rental and contract hire provider.”
