The firm has bolstered its fleet with three Mercedes-Benz Actros 2545LS 6x2 tractor units, and six Montracon curtainsided Mega trailers.
The new trucks have been supplied in Transcentral livery with aero kit, full-width catwalk and BigSpace sleeper cabs.
A key factor in Transcentral choosing Ryder for its latest fleet requirements was the unique collision damage vehicle protection cover offered by Ryder, says director Elizabeth Wray.
"After completing a six-month cost comparison trial on several Ryder-leased trailers, the results proved that Ryder’s Collision Damage Reducer (CDR) product was more cost-effective than taking out separate third-party insurance, particularly if we have to take vehicles on and off the policy as we upgrade or retire assets," explained Wray.
An extension of Ryder’s own motor fleet insurance, the CDR package is said to offer cover for the full contract value of the vehicle and not just the market value for lease units.
Wray added: "The add-ons with the CDR cover are perfect. It saves a tremendous amount of paperwork, admin and worry for the transport team, knowing the insurance of our leased assets is all taken care of by Ryder."
