Navistar International Corporation has initiated Operation Assist, a disaster relief program put into effect to help in Hurricane Sandy recovery efforts on the East Coast to get International Truck customers back in business as soon as possible.
Through Operation Assist, Navistar is coordinating with its International Truck North American dealer network and International Used Truck Centers to help customers in the East Coast find new or used trucks to replace lost or damaged vehicles. In addition to replacing damaged vehicles, Navistar will match employee and dealer contributions up to $50,000 to the American Red Cross.
Navistar has organized lists of available new and used International trucks and trailer inventory from its North American dealer network to assist in the recovery. IC Bus, a Navistar company, has delivered an order of 100 school buses to Amvoy School Bus of Staten Island, N.Y., in an effort to quickly restore school bus service for children.
