As a global leader in transportation and logistics, Ryder is committed to sustainability efforts across all business units and is uniquely positioned to reduce the environmental impacts of its operations as well as those of its customers, while embracing continuous improvement as core to its business.
"From recycling automotive and warehouse waste materials to optimizing entire logistics networks to maximize efficiencies, Ryder focuses on making its customers’ supply chain operations more sustainable from end-to-end," says Steve Sensing, president of global supply chain solutions for Ryder.
Each of Ryder’s warehouses operate under LEAN principles to minimize waste and optimize efficiency. The company focuses on continuous improvement across all functions, analyzing process flows to identify waste and eliminate anything that doesn’t create value. Ryder has also committed significant efforts to recycling across its network. Each year, Ryder recycles nearly three million gallons of used oil, more than 880,000 gallons of oily water, more than 12,000 drums of used oil filters, nearly 48,000 gallons of solvent, and more than two million oil filters.
To improve fuel economy and reduce emissions, Ryder utilizes cleaner-burning fuels and invests in alternative fuel technology. Ryder has nearly a thousand active AFVs and EVs in its fleet and has trained more than 6,000 maintenance and service employees across North America on the new technologies, extending Ryder’s leadership position in the advanced vehicle technology industry. To vertically integrate its offerings, Ryder partnered with In-Charge to provide customers access to the industry’s first single-source electric vehicle technology infrastructure solution, making it easier for customers to incorporate EVs into their fleets and enabling broader adoption of commercial EV technology throughout North America.
Ryder has also been recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency with a SmartWay Excellence Award for reducing GHG emissions, underscoring its sustainability commitment and success.
