Celadon Trucking Services has placed an order for nearly 500 International LoneStar tractors with Cummins ISX15 engines, Navistar announced.

The vehicles supplied to the truckload carrier will include Navistar’s OnCommand Connection, which features access to real-time fault codes, vehicle locations, nearby dealer locations and fault code actions plans.

It is the largest single order of LoneStar tractors ever, Navistar said.

“Celadon is a true partner and this is another example of the confidence the market has in our products,” said Bill Kozek, president, North America Truck and Parts. “In this industry, we are the best at managing relationships and putting our customers first. By providing great products and backing up our offerings with great service, we’ll continue to win. Celadon is also one of the fleets using OnCommand Connection, which provides a number of tools to help fleet managers further maximize vehicle uptime.”

“Compelling relationships and great service support provided by our International dealers made all the difference in this deal,” said Dennis Huffmon, vice president and general manager, Midwest Region. “We need to stay focused and continue to deliver for each and every customer because those efforts will keep us well positioned for the future.”
