Ryder saw an increase in demand for used vehicles this past year, as the semiconductor shortage stalled manufacturing of new vehicles of all kinds, consumer and industrial. The logistics company opens five new locations in the United States, offering a range of logistics-level vehicles such as day cab tractors, sleepers, refrigeration equipment, box trucks, sprinter vans, cargo vans, and trailers. The new locations include Salt Lake City, Utah, Oklahoma City, Okla., Orlando, Fla., Syracuse, N.Y. and Allentown, Pa.

  • These five new locations support Ryder’s commitment to continuously enhancing the customer experience, ensuring both convenience and quality, in securing pre-owned commercial vehicles through Ryder’s used truck centers and online.
  • Ryder has staff on-site to consult with potential buyers on the vehicle that is best suited for their business needs, as well as provide a complete vehicle maintenance history report. Customers also benefit from discounted pricing, extended warranty, and Ryder’s best-in-class maintenance plans to keep payments low and maximize uptime.

“For owner-operators, small businesses, and companies tested by the growth of E-commerce shipping disruptions, acquiring a flexible yet reliable solution can be challenging,” says Eugene Tangney, vice president of global vehicle sales at Ryder. “Ryder’s used vehicle centers provide solutions tailored to a customer’s needs, not only with well-maintained quality vehicles, but with flexible maintenance and financing packages. Plus, many of these used vehicles come with just one prior owner such as Ryder, and have been thoroughly inspected on a 140-point system.”
