COOP from Ryder devised the commercial vehicle renting business after sensing an opportunity to use idle vehicles during the off-season. It is the first company to share this peer-to-peer truck-sharing business.


The platform manages tractors and trailers and focuses on business-to-business. And the firm currently manages 10000 equipment, including those available in non-peak season. 

With Coop owners and investors basically get access to Ryder’s customers on the platform. And not to forget seamless operational support like 24/7 roadside assistance, hassle-free payment structure, and insurance that makes Coop a go-to service provider within this space.

During the conversation, John Matheus and Romas Hicks, revealed several details and assured that the platform is absolutely flexible and lets owners participate either full-time or seasonally. 

Letting owners and investors completely control their equipment is a major USP of Coop. Owners and investors have the freedom to set the price, decide whether the equipment goes out of the state or not, approve or deny the request, and so on.


Five key takeaways from this podcast:


  • What is Coop’s strongest market?
  • What are the advantages of Coop?
  • How much money can you make on the platform?
  • What are the challenges in growing in this marketplace?
  • How does the process of renting work
