RoadOne establishes lease to buy program for its owner-operator drivers

By: | at 02:19 PM | Channel(s): Intermodal  

RoadOne IntermodaLogistics, a leading single source intermodal, distribution, and logistics services company, has announced a new initiative with GreenFleet Ventures that allows RoadOne’s owner-operators in North America to lease 2010 and newer vehicles, and more environmentally friendly tractors to help them establish and maintain their own businesses. This program commenced October 1st with RoadOne making a total of 20 tractors available to its owner-operators. Financing is guaranteed by RoadOne through the GreenFleet program.

RoadOne is committed to programs that provide ongoing support of its driver community. In 2013, RoadOne worked with Massport to set-up grants for drivers to help them purchase new tractors. This is just one example of how RoadOne is helping drivers improve their equipment quality.

“We are pleased to work closely with our RoadOne owner-operators to assist them in acquiring more modern tractors with lower carbon footprints, and support their sole proprietorship business. Over the next 3 years, we will expand our capacity by an additional 400 tractors for this leasing initiative,” said David McLaughlin, RoadOne’s COO..
