Ryder System said that it has launched a new online natural gas vehicle maintenance training program for its entire North American maintenance network.
Over 6,000 maintenance and service employees across Ryder’s 800 maintenance facilities will be trained on the new technology.
The program will provide the company’s technician workforce with knowledge of all natural gas vehicle platforms and configurations. This program supplements existing customized natural gas vehicle training completed by employees who are already fuelling and performing maintenance on natural gas vehicles operating in customers’ fleets.
Since deploying its natural gas vehicle program in 2011, Ryder has replaced approximately 4.6 million gallons of diesel fuel with lower emission domestically produced natural gas.
