Utility Trailer Manufacturing Company has received the largest single order for the 4000D-X Composite dry van from Ryder System, Inc. Ryder, which recently extended a full-service lease contract with CEVA Logistics, purchased 1,044 Utility 4000D-X Composite dry vans to support CEVA’s domestic U.S. ground and freight management operations across North America.
“We are extremely excited that Ryder and CEVA have selected Utility’s 4000D-X Composite dry van to support their expanding fleet needs,” said Mike Ashe, Manager of National Accounts from Utility. “Early on in this process, both Ryder and CEVA determined that the 4000D-X Composite’s durability and its innovative composite sidewall was the best trailer for them due to its low tare weight, superior strength, flexible load securement capability and lower operating costs. This order supports the trend that the 4000D-X Composite has become the fastest growing model in our history.”
The purchase is a major milestone for the 4000D-X Composite as the 1,044 trailers represents the single largest order for Utility’s dry van. It is also the largest lease account trailer order that Ryder has ever placed. Ryder’s Fleet Management Solutions provides full service lease, rental and programmed maintenance of trucks, tractors, and trailers and has again chosen Utility to support their trailer needs. “Ryder values its 30-year relationship with CEVA and we appreciate the confidence they have shown in our ability to meet their well respected service levels,” said Hal Sisco, Ryder’s Director of National Accounts. “We selected Utility to support CEVA’s continued growth because of the proven, high quality product that Utility provides.”
