“World-class 3PLs offer innovative and efficient ways to wring every ounce of productivity from enterprise operations,” says Felecia Stratton, editor of Inbound Logistics. “We’re pleased to recognize Ryder for making the investment in the solutions and expertise that empowered logistics, supply chain, and transportation excellence for customers in 2023.”
To fully optimize supply chain and transportation networks, Ryder continues to build on $1.3 billion in strategic investments it has made over the past five years to develop, acquire, and invest in innovative customer-facing technologies, products, and services.
- In August, the company announced the establishment of Baton, A Ryder Technology Lab based out of Silicon Valley. Led by some of the brightest minds from the world’s most respected tech firms and learning institutions, the lab’s first mission is to create a first-of-its-kind, AI-powered digital platform and optimization engine that facilitates a new, integrated approach to managing transportation networks for customers where seasonality and fluctuating demand inhibit the continuous use of resources.
- In July, Ryder rolled out Torque by Ryder™, a first-of-its-kind retail mobile maintenance service that fleet owners can access via desktop, smartphone, or tablet to schedule, receive, track, and pay for mobile maintenance solutions at their place of business – all without a contract.
- And, in May, Ryder announced RyderElectric+™, a turnkey solution to help customers navigate the electric vehicle landscape, inclusive of developing a transition roadmap with electrification advisors, vehicles, charging, telematics, and maintenance. In addition, Ryder announced plans to introduce up to 4,000 BrightDrop electric vans to its lease and rental fleet through 2025.
“By strategically investing in and piloting new technologies, Ryder is uniquely positioned to ensure our customers have access to the innovations that will keep their supply chain and transportation networks ahead of the curve in an ever-evolving environment – and, just as importantly, access to implementation expertise as well as data scientists to turn analytics into actionable insights,” says Karen Jones, chief marketing officer and head of new product innovation for Ryder. “We strive each and every day to ensure our customers can deliver on their promises to their customers, so to be recognized for that in such a prestigious way is priceless.”
As a fully integrated port-to-door transportation and supply chain logistics provider, Ryder provides supply chain, dedicated transportation, and fleet management solutions to some of the world’s most recognizable brands representing more than 20 industries. By combining cutting-edge technology and business intelligence tools with nearly 90 years of operational know-how, Ryder custom-engineers solutions around its customers’ operations rather than trying to fit them into a one-size-fits-all formula.
