MIAMI – Ryder System, Inc. (NYSE: R), a leader in commercial fleet management and supply chain solutions, today announced that Newgistics, a leading provider of end-to-end e-commerce solutions for top retailers and brands, is renewing and expanding its Ryder Dedicated contract.  As part of the renewal, Ryder will add eight new transportation lanes in support of Newgistics’ growing business that will cover new geographies throughout the country, including a new Southeast lane from Atlanta to Orlando.  As Newgistics’ supply chain partner, Ryder offers time-sensitive transportation service throughout their network and will continue to provide the business with vehicles, maintenance, drivers, and additional value-added services.
 
“The Ryder Dedicated service plays an important role in connecting the hubs of our parcel network, which we refer to as interfacility moves,” said Benoit Robinot-Bertrand, Senior Vice President of Operations, Newgistics.  “These interfacility lanes are truly the backbone of our delivery and return network, so Ryder’s proven stable workforce and on-time performance help power a timely and efficient return and delivery solution on behalf of hundreds of online retailers to and from millions of consumers.  Partnering with companies that share our high standards for service expectation is crucial to our success, and Ryder’s consistency, focus on service, and ability to react to exceptions are a perfect match for our service and values.”
 
Ryder has provided its dedicated service to Newgistics since 2011, primarily providing parcel delivery and returns management support.  The e-commerce solutions provider made the decision to transition from a common carrier environment to Ryder Dedicated as a result of continuous growth.  With Ryder Dedicated, Newgistics’ fleet can adapt to changing demand, staffing, and service needs by utilizing highly-skilled, safe drivers who are managed by Ryder.  In addition, Ryder expertly maintains its fleet through a network of more than 5,000 Ryder technicians.
 
“We are thrilled to continue doing business with Newgistics,” said John Diez, Senior Vice President, Ryder Dedicated.  “Ryder focuses on ensuring that our nationwide network continues to provide customers with the reliability they need to keep their businesses both moving and growing.”
