Ryder launches new technology to streamline customers' management of fleet data, analysis and reporting
Miami — August 22, 2006 — Ryder System Inc., a provider of transportation and supply chain management solutions, said it is launching Ryder FleetCare, a Web-based fleet management tool that provides customers with access to information regarding the operation of their fleets. After successful testing in real-world conditions with Ryder customers, the Company has initiated a U.S. rollout through the fourth quarter of 2006.
"As one of the pilot companies for Ryder FleetCare, we found the tool to be valuable in helping us manage and track our fleet performance by location," said Kent Hittinger, national director of Operations for Celebration Foods. "Scorecard reports are automatically delivered to our sales and operations people monthly, giving us the ability to analyze fleet performance and make better business decisions."
Ryder FleetCare offers secure Internet access to a variety of performance metrics such as vehicle maintenance schedules, service calls, vehicle rental activity and fuel purchases. Reports can be customized and sorted in a variety of ways to analyze information by location or vehicle.
Tony Tegnelia, president of U.S. Fleet Management Solutions for Ryder, explained that Ryder continually looks for ways to deliver value, service and a productivity edge to its customers to help them better understand and manage their fleet operations. "Ryder FleetCare provides customers an easy way to obtain the critical business information they need to improve fleet performance and refine their transportation functions."
