"Our internal used-truck transaction data shows that a growing percentage of our used-truck volume is being purchased by fleet operators," said Tracy A. Leinbach, executive vp of Ryder's fleet management solutions. "These operators recognize that our `Road Ready' used vehicles are a cost-effective and dependable way to supplement their fleets."

The fleet and export sales initiative will be led by Todd Hays, Ryder's senior manager of International/Fleet Vehicle Sales. Hays, who has more than a decade of experience in asset management, sales and marketing, was formerly with El Camino Resources de America Latina Inc., which he served as director of asset management for the Latin America region.

Ryder said its used vehicles are single-owner trucks that are equipped with quality components that have been road-tested and performance-monitored within Ryder's fleet of more than 175,000 vehicles.
