Ryder System, Inc., a leader in U.S. commercial fleet management, dedicated transportation, and supply chain solutions, has been named an Inbound Logistics Green Supply Chain Partner for the ninth consecutive year. Inbound Logistics editors have selected 75 companies that demonstrate a deep commitment to green initiatives in transportation and supply chain sustainability for the magazine’s annual “G75” issue.
Ryder was recognized for its leadership in offering advanced vehicle technologies. The Company demonstrated a proven ability to provide customers with the most flexibility, choice, and control in fleet management, as well as innovative solutions to promote sustainability. Ryder accomplishes this by helping companies improve fuel economy and reduce vehicle emissions by deploying into their commercial fleets thousands of natural gas vehicles (NGVs) and diesel tractors that include the latest technologies that meet the EPA’s 2017 greenhouse gas emissions standard.
Ryder is a leader in NGV solutions for the commercial transportation industry, with more than 150 million miles of experience, eliminating more than 52,904 MTCO2e of greenhouse gas emissions and displacing approximately 23.1 million gallons of diesel fuel with lower emission domestically produced natural gas. The Company has 21 NGV maintenance facilities and more than 6,200 NGV-trained maintenance technicians and support personnel.
Ryder also operates Liquefied to Compressed Natural Gas (LCNG) fuel stations at its Fontana and Orange, Calif., service locations where the Company has partnered with Clean Energy Fuels to offer renewable natural gas.
Ryder was the first North American commercial fleet outsourcing provider to reach the 100 million miles milestone using natural gas vehicles. The company has gained substantial insight into the NGV industry and how to optimize this solution for customers looking to reduce costs and emissions.
“Inbound Logistics’ editors have determined the 2017 honorees are truly ‘walking the walk’ when it comes to commitment to transportation and supply chain sustainability. Inbound Logistics is proud to honour Ryder among this important group of industry-changing leaders,” said Inbound Logistics Editor, Felecia Stratton.
