Navistar's International Truck, IC Bus and parts business gets Sourcewell contracts

Navistar’s International Truck, IC Bus and parts business gets Sourcewell contracts

Navistar‘s commercial truck and bus brands, International Truck and IC Bus, as well as its parts business, have each been awarded cooperative contracts through Sourcewell – a government agency focused on helping other government agencies, educational institutions and nonprofits work more efficiently.

The contracts, which are established for the next four years, designate International Truck, IC Bus and Navistar’s parts business as a verified seller to over 65,000 non-profit organizations – including state and local governments, public and private education, research agencies, charity industries and food banks – across the U.S. and Canada that are participating agencies of Sourcewell. These new contracts started at the beginning of 2021. International Truck has been a contract holder since 2016 while this is the first time IC Bus and Navistar’s parts business have been awarded contracts.

Navistar says these new Sourcewell cooperative contracts will save participating organizations time and money by eliminating much of the work associated with the bidding process for International and IC Bus vehicles – including spec’ing equipment and advertising and evaluating bids. This work is instead done by Sourcewell and allows participating organizations to jump straight to a P.O. offer.

All International Truck and IC Bus models are available through the contract.

When it comes to fleet electrification, The North American Council for Freight Efficiency (NACFE) said the process for many ends up being like a high school dance–trucking companies sitting on one side, utilities across the room, and no one's talking to each other. There's a need to change that, and data from the newest report from NACFE and RMI analyzed performance data from 22 production-level battery electric vehicles (BEVs), to show that companies may not need as much power as they anticipate.
