JNJ Express, Memphis TN Just-in-Time Freight Carrier, Selects International LTs
December 5, 2017 – Summit Truck Group of Memphis TN has announced a purchase agreement with JNJ Express for 500 new International® LT sleeper tractors. This is the largest sale of the new LT model by Summit’s Memphis location and also JNJ’s largest vehicle purchase to date. The trucks began delivery in November 2017, continuing through December 2020.
JNJ is a Memphis-based carrier specializing in “Just-in-Time” freight, operating a fleet of over 450 power units. JNJ was founded in 1992 by John Ennis, Sr., and today includes two sons — John Jr. and Nathan — who are both actively involved in the day-to-day operations of this dynamic transportation entity.
The new trucks that JNJ selected include the latest and most complete array of safety options available to the trucking industry. These trucks will employ the same safety systems available on most of today’s automobiles, including electronic stability control, radar controlled collision mitigation braking, lane departure, camera-identified speed limit recognition, and all-position disc brakes which provide the shortest stopping distance available. The safety systems will also have the capability to transmit data and pictures via telematics in a “real-time” format.
Through this purchase, JNJ determined again that their choice for new trucks is Internationals. The decision was made after a good deal of analyzation of the performance of the 235 Internationals JNJ has purchased over the past three years. The determining factors were the reliability of the product (uptime), service and parts availability, OnCommand Connection telematics from Navistar to help manage their fleet, and the Fleet Support Team of Summit’s Customer Service Department that regularly monitors over 34,000 trucks and keeps these trucks on the road where they belong.
