Dec. 30, 2014

Ryder System Inc, a leader in commercial fleet management and supply chain solutions, announces it has partnered with telephone interpretation service, Language Select, to provide seamless communications in over 200 different languages for its pre-owned vehicle customers. Customers simply call 1-800-USED-TRK (1-800-873-3875) and Ryder will bring a Language Select interpreter on the line.

Customer’s vehicle needs will then be clearly translated to a Ryder sales representative, and the appropriate pre-owned vehicle solution will be clearly translated back. The service is available during the operating hours of Ryder’s Used Truck Centers.

Ryder officials say their company is the first reseller of commercial vehicles to offer this language interpretation tool. 

“Language should not be a barrier to ensuring we provide the best pre-owned vehicle solution to our diverse base of customers across the globe,” says Eugene Tangney, Ryder vice-president of asset management and vehicle sales. “With our free telephone translation service, our customers can be confident that we speak their language when it comes to finding a quality and affordable used commercial vehicles.”
