Ryder System, a leader in commercial fleet management, dedicated transportation, and supply chain solutions, announced the opening of its new Logistics Operating Center (LOC) in London, Ontario, which will primarily serve the Eastern Canada region.

The new facility includes a 30,000-square-foot building with office and cross-docking space, as well as parking spaces for 286 trailers and 162 tractors. A total of 210 drivers are domiciled out of the facility, along with 55 Ryder employees.

“This facility is a key element of our cross border operation between Canada and the U.S.,” said Gene Sevilla, Ryder Vice President of International Supply Chain Solutions. “It enables Ryder to continue to grow in the Canadian market, and further supports Ryder’s handling of cross-border freight movements on behalf of North American retailers and manufacturers in various industries.”

The new, LOC, located at 1205 Green Valley Road, London, Ontario, provides cross-dock solutions, which enable goods to be distributed using little or no storage time. Inbound shipments coming from the U.S. are received at the cross-dock in London, Ontario, unloaded and sorted for final store delivery, and redeployed outbound in 24 hours or less. This enables retailer customers to reduce their transportation costs while also replenishing their stores more frequently to meet customer demand and fulfill omni-channel or forward stocking on fast-moving items.

Ryder’s new facility will handle more than 3,000 cross-border freight movements a month between the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.
