Ryder System launched a discount program for women-owned businesses that are a member of the Women in Trucking Association (WIT), where for a limited time buyers can take advantage of a pre-owned commercial vehicle sales promotion of 5% off the purchase price.
“Ryder’s main goal is to continuously enhance the customer experience by making it as seamless as possible to secure the best pre-owned commercial vehicle,” Eugene Tangney, vice president of global vehicle sales for Ryder, said. “Similar to Ryder’s military discount for used vehicles, we wanted to honor women-owned business in the trucking industry while encouraging more women to get into trucking-related careers.”
“Ryder’s efforts to address the transportation industry’s gender gap intentionally prioritizes the success of internal skills development and engagement programs that foster female leadership and mentorship opportunities,” Jennifer Hedrick, incoming president and CEO of WIT, said. “We appreciate the support Ryder provides to create a more gender diverse workforce in the trucking industry.”
