AUG 24, 2020 - 6:45 am
Ryder System, a provider of supply chain, dedicated transportation and commercial fleet management solutions, was listed among Food Logistics’ Top Third-Party Logistics (3PL) and Cold Storage Providers for 2020.
The honor marks Ryder’s eighth consecutive year on the list. Each year, the publication’s editorial team and advisory board selects the leading 3PL service providers that demonstrate a commitment to continually improving their operations and meeting their customers’ needs.
“This year, we expanded our e-commerce fulfillment solution to include food-grade compliant facilities. With the FDA certification, we can offer our food and beverage customers the ability to deliver direct to 99% of U.S. consumers in two days or less with unmatched accuracy, reliability and 100% end-to-end visibility,” Steve Sensing, president of supply chain solutions for Ryder, said. “Of course, the pandemic has only increased the need for efficient and resilient e-commerce fulfillment services, and Ryder has proven that it can deliver.”
Also this year, Ryder rolled out a real-time visibility and collaborative logistics platform called RyderShare. The solution integrates multiple transportation and warehouse management systems, enabling all parties involved in moving goods through a supply chain to see potential problems, collaborate in real-time and take proactive action to course-correct.
“Today’s 3PLs and cold storage providers are more essential to the movement of food and beverage than ever before. Despite supply chain threats and disruptions, they continue to show their resiliency, strength and innovation to continue moving product from point A to point B,” Marina Mayer, editor-in-chief of Food Logistics and Supply & Demand Chain Executive, said.
