- Simplifies Fuel Tax Reporting Process for its Commercial Rental Customers -
MIAMI, November 30, 2015 – Ryder System, Inc. (NYSE: R), a leader in commercial fleet management, dedicated transportation, and supply chain solutions, today announced it has launched its new Ryder Fuel Receipt mobile app that will make it easier for its commercial rental customers in North America to stay compliant with required interstate fuel tax reporting documents.
“Ryder is continuously looking for ways to create and deliver the best commercial Rental process for our customers in the United States and Canada as they rely on us to keep their businesses running,” said Ryder Vice President & Global Product Manager for Rental Operations, Rich Mohr. “We are committed to continually enhance the Ryder Rental experience, and always strive to make it as easy as possible for customers to rent a truck from Ryder.”
Ryder’s new app is available to Ryder Commercial Rental customers and is Apple (IOS) and Android compatible. With the new app, customers can use their mobile device to simply capture an image of their non-Ryder fuel receipt, add a few details about the fuel purchase location, price, and then submit the information to Ryder by the click of a button. Ryder will then match the fuel on required interstate fuel tax reporting and store the fuel purchase history in the Ryder Fuel Receipt app for up to four years.
“The launch of our new Ryder Fuel Receipt app furthers our commitment to innovation and the environment, as we receive up to 25,000 individual fuel receipts a month from our customers and this new technology will now reduce the amount of paper used during the fuel tax reporting process,” said Ryder Chief Information Officer, Melvin Kirk. “Ryder is committed to setting the industry standard for IT-led business innovation that optimizes its customer experience while also accelerating performance and reducing costs.”
This technology investment follows Ryder’s recent launch of its new paperless Rental process mobile tablet app for quicker rental check-in and check-out and its new rental maintenance mobile tablet app for faster repairs. Ryder rental facilities also feature digital displays that show safety videos and other information that helps customers better understand the special requirements for operating today’s more technologically-advanced commercial vehicles.

Ryder serves customers at more than 500 convenient rental locations across the U.S. and Canada, staffed with a dedicated team of knowledgeable rental agents, and stocked with an inventory of over 37,000 recent-model vehicles.
