MIAMI–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Ryder System, Inc. (NYSE: R), a leader in supply chain, dedicated transportation, and commercial fleet management solutions, announces it is listed among Food Logistics’ Top Third-Party Logistics (3PL) & Cold Storage Providers for 2020. The honor marks Ryder’s 8th consecutive year on the list. Each year, the publication’s editorial team and advisory board selects the leading 3PL service providers that demonstrate a commitment to continually improving their operations and meeting their customers’ needs.
Ryder’s customer-centric approach to finding innovative solutions in areas such as warehouse distribution, supply chain optimization and transportation management, are what has made the company a reliant resource for the food and beverage industry, including nine of the top 10 food and beverage companies.
“This year, we expanded our e-commerce fulfillment solution to include food-grade compliant facilities. With the FDA certification, we can offer our food and beverage customers the ability to deliver direct to 99% of U.S. consumers in two days or less with unmatched accuracy, reliability, and 100% end-to-end visibility,” says Steve Sensing, president of supply chain solutions for Ryder. “Of course, the pandemic has only increased the need for efficient and resilient e-commerce fulfillment services, and Ryder has proven that it can deliver.”
Also this year, Ryder rolled out a one-of-a-kind, real-time visibility and collaborative logistics platform called RyderShareTM. The customer-centric solution integrates multiple transportation and warehouse management systems, enabling all parties involved in moving goods through a supply chain to easily see potential problems, collaborate in real-time, and take pro-active action to course-correct – an ability that is particularly valuable to the food and beverage industry, where maintaining time and temperature controls is critical.
“Today’s 3PLs and cold storage providers are more essential to the movement of food and beverage than ever before. Despite supply chain threats and disruptions, they continue to show their resiliency, strength, and innovation to continue moving product from Point A to Point B,” says Marina Mayer, editor-in-chief, Food Logistics and Supply & Demand Chain Executive.
The 2020 Top 3PL & Cold Storage Providers list serves as a resource directory of the leading 3PL and cold storage providers across the food and beverage industry.
