Sterling Truck Corp. on Thursday, Aug. 7, introduced the Sterling NightShift — its new integrated sleeper. Designed to maximize productivity and driver retention in regional haul applications, the company says the NightShift features best-in-size storage of a midsize-midroof sleeper, a stand-up walk-through configuration, ultimate comfort and a significant amount of natural light — together offering the most abundant driver amenities in a midsize sleeper.
Designed specifically for the less-than-truckload, distribution and leasing markets, the NightShift is suited for drivers who travel multiple days per week. The integrated sleeper is available in a 60-inch midroof configuration for the Sterling Set-Back 113 and Set-Back 122 models.

In addition, fleet owners will benefit from better rested, more productive drivers, all geared to help improve driver retention — and their bottom line.”
