Ryder customers ranked the company as 'best-of-the-best' in service excellence across a number of criteria, including: carrier selection & negotiation, order fulfillment, transportation & distribution, inventory management, and logistics information systems.
'When you consider the ever-escalating demands on third-party logistics providers to keep pace with the growth of omni-channel fulfillment, as well as digitization across all supply chain operations, receiving a customer-satisfaction award like this is something to celebrate,' says Steve Sensing, Ryder President of Supply Chain Solutions.
In an effort to continue to improve on its omni-channel fulfillment solutions and meet customers' rising demands, Ryder announced its e-commerce fulfillment solution earlier this year. The solution enables manufacturers of small to large parcel goods to bypass third-party marketplaces and take their products direct to U.S. consumers in two days or less. Ryder is also one of the largest last-mile providers of big-and-bulky goods, with Ryder Last Mile providing home delivery and white-glove installation to 95% of the U.S. and Canada within a two-day timeframe.
