REV Group (NYSE: REVG) announced today that it has established a new service partnership with Ryder System, Inc., (NYSE: R), a leader in commercial fleet management, dedicated transportation and supply chain solutions. Under a Ryder SelectCare maintenance agreement, REV will leverage Ryder’s extensive maintenance network with a program designed to deliver nationwide vehicle service to the customers of REV Bus Brands, which include Collins, Champion, ElDorado, ENC, Federal, Goshen, Krystal, and World Trans.
The new partnership will enable REV to offer its dealers and their customers access to a superior level of preventive and on-demand maintenance solutions at hundreds of Ryder service locations throughout the United States. This will supplement REV’s existing network of dealer service centers and its growing list of REV Technical Centers. Together with Ryder and its participating dealers, REV has created a revolutionary vehicle maintenance program for the bus industry.
Under the Ryder SelectCare service agreement, REV bus customers will have access to two levels of maintenance service — SelectCare Preventive Maintenance and SelectCare On-Demand Maintenance. The preventive maintenance option gives REV bus customers access to the same scheduled maintenance programs utilized by large fleets to control costs and maximize uptime. The on-demand option gives REV customers access to Ryder service centers nationwide, so help is available when and where needed.
Tim Sullivan, CEO and President of REV Group, commented, “The REV/Ryder partnership creates an industry-leading service for bus customers that no one else in the industry can offer. Coupled with our dealer network and REV Technical Centers, Ryder’s maintenance program now greatly expands our customers’ access to maintenance service, utilizing hundreds of Ryder service locations across the nation. The new partnership truly demonstrates the REV Group commitment to provide customers service before, during and after the sale.”
Dennis Cooke, President of Fleet Management Solutions for Ryder, further added, “Ryder is pleased to partner with REV Group, whose vehicles, much like Ryder’s, have a positive impact on the daily lives of thousands of people. It’s essential that REV’s buses are up and running to get commuters where they need to be, both safely and efficiently. We’re happy that REV, REV dealers, and their customers can rely on us to deliver the most flexible maintenance solutions, with the most extensive network of service locations, and access to the best diesel technicians in the industry.”
