Ryder System announced the availability of its RydeGreen line of tractors and trailers, designed to reduce fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. The company has partnered with Freightliner to offer two sleeper tractors, the Columbia and the Century, equipped with special features that have earned them EPA's SmartWay designation.
Trailer packages from Great Dane and Utility offer aerodynamic features and weight-saving options, according to Ryder. Ryder also will provide online driver training programs through Ryder Pro-Tread.
“With RydeGreen vehicles and Ryder Pro-Tread training programs, Ryder is making it even easier for customers of all sizes to comply with higher EPA ‘07 emissions standards and improve the fuel efficiency of their fleets,” says Tony Tegnelia, president of Ryder's U.S. fleet management solutions.
