Ryder Sets New Safety Standards for Rental Fleet

| March 30, 2017


Ryder System (NYSE:R), a leader in commercial fleet management, dedicated transportation, and supply chain solutions, has announced that all new vehicles that come into its North American commercial rental fleet will now include innovative safety technologies, such as forward looking radar and collision mitigation systems.

The new vehicles will become the standard specification for Ryder’s commercial rental fleet.

“With this investment in innovative safety features such as forward looking radar and collision mitigation systems, we are helping customers address critical business priorities – fleet efficiency, over-the-road safety, driver retention, and recruiting,” said Richard Mohr, Vice President & Global Product Manager, Ryder Rental Operations.

Ryder has offered these innovative safety technologies as an available option to its ChoiceLease customers for several years.  So what’s new?  The Company is now making those technologies standard for the first time within its Commercial Rental product line for new vehicles being delivered into service this spring.

Ryder’s fleet of vehicles incorporates other advanced technologies including automated manual transmissions, roll stability controls, and telematics. The Company also utilizes video monitoring and management systems in its Dedicated Transportation Solution (DTS) fleet.
