Volvo Trucks Awarded NJPA Truck Chassis Contract
By pdamon17 January 2017
Volvo Trucks North America said it has been awarded a contract by the National Joint Powers Alliance (NJPA) to offer Class 8 chassis to the more than 50,000 NJPA members. The NJPA is a public agency that creates national cooperative contract purchasing solutions on behalf of its member entities across the United States and Canada. NJPA contracts are solicited across North America and are competitively awarded on behalf of NJPA current and potential government and education members agencies.
By consolidating the efforts of numerous individually prepared bids to a single, shared process, these cooperative contract opportunities offer both time and money savings for NJPA members. NJPA members can use the chassis contract to streamline their truck bid process and take advantage of NJPA’s rigorous selection criteria and attractive pricing.
Under the contract, NJPA member agencies can now purchase Volvo VNM, VNL, VNX and VHD model chassis. All Volvo truck chassis procured under the NJPA chassis contract come with Volvo Trucks’ suite of uptime services, which include real-time vehicle status updates, case management and 24/7/365 technical support. Additionally, member agencies can work with and take delivery through their local Volvo Trucks dealer.
“Volvo Trucks is pleased to offer our full range of heavy-duty trucks through the NJPA,” said Jeff Lester, senior vice president of sales for Volvo Trucks North America. “Member agencies can specify the Volvo model that best fits their needs by utilizing Volvo’s complete specification offering.”
