Navistar has announced the launch of the Core Advantage Program, a creative new approach for core life cycle management. The Core Advantage Program helps fleet owners reduce their overall costs by helping them to manage their core and remanufacturing activity through new tools like the Navistar proprietary software Core Management System (CMS). Cores are used or failed parts that have been returned by the customer at the end of its product life.

Navistar, Inc. announced recently that it has started shipping its first International TerraStar 4x4 units – one of the company’s newest additions to its comprehensive Class 4 – Class 8 product portfolio.
Introduced at Waste Expo 2012, Navistar’s International LoadStar is a light-weight low cab forward truck specifically designed for waste/refuse. Navistar says the LoadStar is equipped with the industry’s first stainless steel cab to minimize corrosion and increase durability, as well as vocationally designed variable depth frame rails for maximum durability.
In 2010, Navistar added waste collection features for their International, DuraStar and International WorkStar vocational trucks. According to the company, the features were added in light of the fact that waste and recyclables collection requires tough trucks that can withstand as many as 900 stops a day, landfill operations on uneven terrain, large payloads and a strenuous operating environment.
The International DuraStar Hybrid is the transportation industry’s first medium-duty diesel electric hybrid truck, providing customers with improved fuel ef-ficiency and reduced engine emissions. As an example, one company will use the truck to collect organics for recycling. This includes using hybrid trucks to collect food waste from restaurants, schools and other institutions to be converted into odourless, nutrient-rich soil. The truck has the proven capability to provide fuel savings from 30 to 40 percent on standard in-city pickup and delivery applications. The fuel efficiency can increase to more than 60 percent in utility-type applications.
