Ryder operates behind the scenes, managing critical fleet and supply chain functions for approximately 50,000 customers, many of which make the products that consumers use every day. The Company’s solutions fall into the following three areas: Fleet Management Solutions, Supply Chain Solutions, and Dedicated Transportation Solutions.
Fleet Management Solutions (FMS)
Fleet Management Solutions provides full service leasing, contract maintenance, contract-related maintenance and commercial rental of trucks, tractors and trailers to customers principally in the U.S., Canada and the U.K. Through the FMS business, Ryder provides customers with flexible solutions designed to improve their competitive positions by allowing them to focus on their core business, lower their costs, and redirect capital to other parts of their business. Our solutions also enable customers to improve the uptime and reliability of their fleets, thereby minimizing fleet-related business disruptions and risks. The Company also offers transactional fleet solutions including commercial truck rental, maintenance services, and value-added fleet support services such as insurance, vehicle administration, and fuel services. In addition, we provide our customers with access to a large selection of used trucks, tractors, and trailers through our used vehicle sales program.
Supply Chain Solutions (SCS)
Dedicated Transportation Solutions combines the vehicles and equipment, maintenance, and administrative services of a full service lease with drivers and additional services to provide a customer with a comprehensive, turnkey transportation solution. The DTS offering is designed to increase customers’ competitive position, improve risk management, and integrate their transportation needs with their overall supply chain. Additional services offered through DTS include routing and scheduling, fleet sizing, safety, regulatory compliance, risk management, technology and communication systems support. The DTS offering provides a high degree of specialization to meet the needs of customers with high service requirements such as tight delivery windows, high-value or time-sensitive freight, closed-loop distribution, and multi-stop shipments.
