Ryder supplies latest Mercedes-Benz Actros 18 tonne vehicles to Herman Miller Limited


Ryder is supplying four new latest specification Mercedes-Benz Actros 1843 Prime Mover Drawbar rigid trucks, with Streamspace 2.3m sleeper cabs and demountable bodies, to Herman Miller Limited. Ryder is also supplying eight box trailers and two MAN TGX tractor units, converted from rental to lease, together with a Kalmar yard tug, to the international office furniture manufacturer.

The new vehicles join Herman Miller’s UK delivery fleet for office furniture distribution. Ryder was selected to provide the new vehicles following a competitive tender. They are being supplied on a contract hire basis with full maintenance.

Pat Furlong, Transport Operations Supervisor, Herman Miller Limited, said: “We have been working with Ryder since 2000 and they have continued to provide excellent service and support for our transport fleet, of which around 50% is supplied by Ryder.

“Ryder’s support from the very beginning of this contract negotiation has been exceptional. We particularly valued their assistance in ensuring we specified exactly the right vehicles for our evolving operational needs.”

“We also appreciated their flexibility in ensuring that the contract and service terms met our requirements. Ryder’s proactive approach from start to finish underlines why we have a relationship of 18 years with them.”

John Murray, Ryder sales and marketing director, said: “We’re delighted to have been appointed to supply these new vehicles and trailers to Herman Miller Limited. The long relationship we have developed together enables us to understand in detail their operational and business needs, ensuring we tailor exactly the right solutions for them. Ryder’s service capability, and our ability to provide nationwide back up, are also key factors underpinning the strong relationship we’ve built up over nearly two decades.”

In addition to supporting Herman Miller in the UK, Ryder Fleet Management Solutions in the United States supports Herman Miller with lease and rental vehicles.
