Ryder has the largest rental, leasing and contract hire fleet above 3.5t GVW in the UK

Ryder has taken delivery of  a multi-marque Euro-6 demonstrator fleet to enable its rental and contract hire customers to carry out their own road trials. 

The fleet, which is comprised of 13 trucks and tractor units from Daf, Mercedes-Benz and Iveco, includes two and three-axle vehicles with various power and specification levels.

They will be moved around Ryder’s 28 nationwide locations so that as many customers as possible will have a chance to test them.

“When you run 22,500 trucks and trailers you have to work closely with customers to ensure you are able to tailor products and services to meet their exact operational requirements,” said David Hunt, vice-president and MD at Ryder Europe.

“These Euro-6 demonstrators will enable customers to try the newer specification trucks for themselves, and better understand the operational and maintenance requirements associated with the new technology.  All the vehicles in the fleet are fitted with Microlise telematics, which will supply accurate information and provide crucial data in real time," he added.
