Ryder System, a supply chain, dedicated transportation and commercial fleet management solutions provider, was named as a “Green Supply Chain Partner” in the annual Inbound Logistics “G75” special section for the 12th consecutive year. This award recognizes the 75 leading companies that demonstrate a deep commitment to efficiency and sustainability.
“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,” Steve Sensing, president of global supply chain solutions for Ryder, said.
Each of Ryder’s warehouses operate under LEAN principles to minimize waste and optimize efficiency and has committed efforts to recycling across its network. Each year, Ryder recycles nearly 3 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 2 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. 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.
