"Disruption is occurring at a more rapid pace than ever before in the world of transportation and logistics. Ryder’s focus can’t be just on this year or the next. The focus for us is making sure we’re looking at what’s coming down the pike five, ten years from now. That’s where the biggest opportunities for growth are, both for us and our customers."

The Future of Logistics The future of logistics is now – learn how Ryder fits in

THE WORLD IS MOVING from physical to digital, wasteful to sustainable, delayed to instantaneous, and from manual to automated. The pace and gravity of this change is forcing companies to re-think how they do business to ensure success in the future. That’s where Ryder fits in.


Advanced Vehicle Technology

WE ARE LEVERAGING OUR RELATIONSHIPS with manufacturers of advanced fuel vehicles such as electric and hydrogen fuel cells, strengthening our leadership in advanced vehicle technology while expanding our ability to provide customers with the most flexibility, choice, and control for their fleet.

And because electrification and charging infrastructure is the biggest barrier for companies to move to an electric fleet, we have partnered with energy companies that not only provide charging infrastructure for businesses’ fleet, but also assess their power usage through their supply chain to harness their electric grid and save money.

The Digital Supply Chain

TECHNOLOGIES SEAMLESSLY INTEGRATE with our best in class warehouse management and transportation management systems to digitize supply chains.  Data collected from one source can be combined with data collected from another and turned into business intelligence used for predictive analytics and closed-loop planning.

Big Data Analytics

CONNECTED TRUCKS have the ability to provide a plethora of data that translates into business intelligence and key predictive analytics with the right people utilizing it. Ryder is helping businesses collect and utilize this data to determine the condition of their vehicles, where goods are, how to manage exceptions, and what new business strategies to develop.


The Smart Warehouse

RYDER IS PARTNERING with leading technology companies to prioritize four types of innovative technologies most applicable to creating and supporting an automated smart warehouse: robotics, sensors, wearables, and drones.

  • Robotics such as autonomous forklifts, tuggers, transporters, and assembly line vehicles provide a safe, efficient and reliable solution for the movement of goods in a warehouse, while improving productivity, visibility, and customer service levels.
  • Sensors and identification tools automatically locate and profile supply chain objects to capture and communicate data across the supply chain.
  • Wearable technology gives managers and employees the capability to exchange data between devices and the network.
  • Drones have many uses in the smart warehouse including inventory management, facility management and security.
