Ryder Expands Last Mile Delivery Network

Ryder System expanded Ryder Last Mile, its customizable, multi-tiered delivery solution for big-and-bulky goods, by opening new distribution centers in the Nashville, TN, and Boise, ID, areas.

Outside of downtown Nashville, TN, one of the new Ryder Last Mile multiclient warehouses is located specifically in Smyrna, TN, and opened in February at 100,000 square feet with room to expand to accommodate customer growth as well as seasonal and market fluctuations. In addition, earlier this month, just outside of Boise, ID, Ryder opened a 70,000-square-foot multiclient facility in Caldwell, ID.

“We made the decision to invest in the Nashville and Boise markets for this latest expansion of our last-mile delivery network because it aligns with our broader strategy to continually position our customers closer to their end-consumers,” Steve Sensing, president of supply chain solutions at Ryder, said. “With burgeoning populations and quick access to highway and rail networks, these two new markets increase speed-to-market, which is critical in today’s highly competitive environment and vital to our customers’ growth strategies.”

With more than 100 additional locations, the Ryder Last Mile network covers 95% of the United States, including Puerto Rico and Hawaii, within a two-day timeframe. The customizable delivery options include four tiers of service: front door, over the threshold, room of choice and white-glove delivery, which includes assembly, hook-up and installation.
