Ryder System announced that Postal Fleet Services signed a Ryder ChoiceLease Full Service agreement for 20 compressed natural gas (CNG) heavy-duty vehicles supporting mail delivery operations in Orlando, FL; Lafayette, LA; Jackson, MS; and La Vergne, TN.
Postal Fleet Services said it has relied on Ryder for fleet leasing and maintenance solutions for more than 10 years. The 20 CNG fueled vehicles will now be added to the existing fleet of Ryder diesel-powered vehicles that already supports Postal Fleet Services’ mail distribution operations. The vehicles will be serviced by Ryder’s maintenance network of natural gas trained technicians within Ryder’s maintenance facilities, the company added.
“With Ryder’s help, our team is committed to providing our customer with the best overall delivery service while also helping them achieve the best transportation value in the industry,” said Don Dorris, owner of Postal Fleet Services. “Postal Fleet Services takes pride in being a mail delivery contractor where we have the ability to respond to our customer’s additional needs in minutes. We can now continue to perform above their expectations, while operating more cost-efficiently and environmentally-friendly. Ryder has been extremely responsive to our service needs, which makes us confident about our continued relationship as their help is critical to provide the logistics expertise, knowledge, and know-how needed to ensure that the fleet is operating at its best.”
“Ryder continues to see demand for natural gas vehicles from businesses that are looking through a longer term lens, and want to realize the environmental and fuel efficiency benefits,” said Ryder president of global fleet management solutions, Dennis Cooke. “When companies outsource to Ryder, they get the benefits of our extensive experience operating and maintaining natural gas fleets, so they can reduce risk, maximize performance, speed return on investment, and focus on driving what matters to them – managing their core business and servicing their customers.”
