Navistar Inc and J B Hunt Transport Services Inc have reached a long-term supply agreement for Navistar to be the principal provider of International brand commercial trucks to J B Hunt through 2014.
Jack Allen, president of Navistar’s North American truck group, said, “J B Hunt is an industry leader and one of the most metric-driven transportation companies in the world. They have tested our ProStar with MaxxForce 13 engine, and this agreement demonstrates their confidence in the fuel economy, overall performance, and no-hassle approach of our MaxxForce Advanced EGR engines.”
The five-year agreement with J B Hunt, a global multi-modal transportation logistics company with approximately 9,000 power units in its fleet, calls for delivery of more than 5,000 trucks through 2014. Navistar will deliver the International ProStar+ sleepers and day cabs powered by 2010 EPA-certified MaxxForce 13 big-bore engines.
