WARRENVILLE, Ill. — Navistar has announced it has closed another major deal, having received orders for 325 International ProStar+ trucks from US carrier Boyd Bros.

The tractors will be equipped with Navistar’s EPA2010-compliant International MaxxForce 13 engine, the company announced.

Boyd Bros. operates more than 1,000 trucks in its fleet and was named winner of this year’s Truckload Carriers Association/CarriersEdge ‘Best Fleets to Drive For’ competition.

“We’re proud to win new business from Boyd Bros. and we look forward to delivering the ProStar+ to their fleet,” said Jim Hebe, senior vice-president, North American sales operations with Navistar. “Boyd Bros. prides itself on driver satisfaction and the ProStar+ delivers a winning combination of driver-inspired comfort features and outstanding fuel economy.”

The carrier currently operates more than 60 International ProStar tractors with the EPA07 MaxxForce 13.

“We’ve had great results with the existing ProStar tractors in our fleet and look forward to even more success with the ProStar+,” said Chris Cooper, chief operating officer, Boyd Bros. “From the significant fuel economy advantages we’ve realized, to the appreciation our drivers have for the quiet, comfortable ride, we’re excited to reward our drivers with the ProStar+.”
