Concord, Va.-based RLJ Thompson Trucking, Inc., recently filed an order for 15 International HX620 trucks equipped with a 15-liter Cummins ISX engine, the largest one-time order of the new HX Series trucks to-date.
The trucks will become part of the company’s dump truck fleet that hauls aggregate throughout Virginia, Maryland, Washington, D.C., North Carolina and South Carolina.
Jeff Sass, Navistar’s senior vice president of sales and marketing, says the company has already booked orders for more than 300 trucks and that number grows by the day.
“This interest is fueled by how we designed our new HX Series based on in-depth discussions with leading Class 8 vocational customers,” he adds.
“We ordered the new HX Series trucks because we are excited about the bold design that offers a sturdy, yet lightweight truck powered by the ISX engine,” says Ricky Thompson, President of RLJ Thompson Trucking, Inc.
