Ryder System, Inc., a leader in supply chain, dedicated transportation, and fleet management solutions, announces it is listed among Food Logistics’ Top Third-Party Logistics & Cold Storage Providers for 2022.
“These past 18 months have been so challenging for U.S. supply chains. It’s the continuous bottlenecks that require fleets to re-tool and pivot accordingly; but, it’s the drivers, the fleet, the warehouses, and software/technologies that really keep today’s supply chains in line,” says Marina Mayer, editor-in-chief of Food Logistics and Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazines. “These 3PLs and cold-storage providers have collaborated on all facets of their operations to achieve full visibility, complete forecasting, end-to-end leverage, and the ultimate in sustainability. Now is the time to honor and celebrate those companies making magic happen behind the frontlines.”
Earlier this year, Ryder—which serves nine of the top 10 companies in the food and beverage industry—announced that its one-of-a-kind visibility, collaboration, and exception management technology RyderShareTM now includes a warehouse management solution. The result is true end-to-end visibility as goods move inbound on trucks to within the four walls of warehouses and distribution centers and, ultimately, outbound to their final destinations.
“As a fully integrated port-to-door transportation and supply chain logistics provider, achieving that kind of next-level visibility and collaboration in today’s disruptive supply chain environment has proven to be a game changer for our customers,” says Steve Sensing, president of global supply chain solutions for Ryder. “And it’s even more critical for the food and beverage supply chain where reliability and time and temperature controls are paramount.”
Also this year, Ryder expanded its e-fulfillment network, which includes food-grade compliant facilities, with the acquisition of a proven technology and operating platform that enables scalable e-commerce and omnichannel fulfillment solutions for brands big and small. And, Ryder acquired a multiclient warehousing and distribution company to add to its portfolio of supply chain solutions.
“When you combine these expanded capabilities with our technology-enabled, end-to-end transportation logistics solutions, Ryder is in a position to deliver significantly increased value for food and beverage brands looking for more dynamic supply chain solutions. These investments underscore our commitment to helping our customers deliver on their promises to their customers every day,” adds Sensing.
