Ryder Selected by Postal Fleet for Natural Gas Vehicle Solution
Ryder System announced that Postal Fleet Services signed a Ryder ChoiceLease Full Service agreement for 20 heavy duty CNG vehicles supporting mail delivery operations in Orlando, Florida; Lafayette, Louisiana; Jackson, Mississippi; and La Vergne, Tennessee.
Postal Fleet Services 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 within Ryder’s maintenance facilities that meet the compliance requirements for servicing natural gas vehicles.
“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,” said Don Dorris, Owner of Postal Fleet Services. “We can now continue to perform above their expectations, while operating more cost-efficiently and environmentally-friendly.”
Ryder is a leader in NGV solutions for the commercial transportation industry, with more than 90 million miles of experience, 22 NGV maintenance facilities, and more than 5,500 NGV trained maintenance and support personnel. With the deployment of the NGVs in Postal Fleets Services’ fleet in Tennessee and Mississippi, Ryder has now expanded its NGV offering into 16 states and two Canadian provinces.
