MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ryder System, Inc. (NYSE: R), a leader in commercial transportation and supply chain management solutions, today announced it is now offering extended warranty plans in Canada to complement the reliability of its Ryder Road ReadyTM pre-owned vehicles. These innovative extended warranty programs provide immediate, comprehensive power train and emissions component coverage up to 36 months or 1.6 million kilometres for pre-owned Ryder Road ReadyTM vehicles under the terms specified in the coverage. Compared to other major suppliers, this is one of the most complete warranty plans currently available, covering all manufacturers, as well as Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF), Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) valves, injectors, water pumps, turbochargers, transmission and rear axle(s), among other items detailed in warranty.
“We understand that buying a used truck is a significant investment,” said Eugene Tangney, Group Director of Asset Management for Ryder. “With this new extended warranty, customers have the added confidence that they are getting top quality vehicles they can depend on for the long haul.”
To provide customers with this extended warranty, Ryder has partnered with Premium 2000+, a leader in used truck warranties.

Ryder Road ReadyTM used vehicles are single-owner vehicles equipped with quality components and part configurations that have been road-tested and performance-monitored within Ryder's fleet of more than 180,000 vehicles.
