RYDER PARTNERS WITH QUANTUM TO OFFER NEW CNG SYSTEMS
Quantum Fuel Systems has announced that it has entered into a long-term agreement with Ryder System for the purchase and supply of complete CNG fuel systems that will help reduce costs and increase vehicle uptime for businesses that lease CNG trucks from Ryder. Under the agreement, Ryder will purchase CNG tank systems directly from Quantum, and a team of Ryder technicians will install them onto natural gas trucks. Ryder’s maintenance team has worked with Quantum to develop comprehensive procedures to ensure the tank system installations will meet industry standards. By purchasing the systems direct, Ryder is able to reduce cost for its lease customers. In addition to the purchasing agreement, Quantum and Ryder will work together to improve future fuel system designs, based on Ryder’s experience operating CNG vehicles in commercial truck applications.
