Ryder activates Winter Preparedness Hub as fleets gear up for cold weather

TORONTO, Ont. – Ryder System announced today that it has activated its online Winter Preparedness Hub – where best practices are shared on how to keep fleets winter-ready throughout the cold season.

Last year, Ryder said drivers and fleet managers relied on Ryder’s Winter Preparedness Hub to remain informed of best practices surrounding fleet maintenance proactive planning, proper fueling, driver training, and driver safety. On the hub, visitors can find informative tip sheets and videos about the do’s and don’ts of prepping a fleet for winter, Ryder shop closure notifications, and a listing of other helpful online resources.

“Last winter, we witnessed a great improvement in uptime and efficiency, and received positive feedback from customers, who said they turned to Ryder’s Winter Prep site for consistent, up-to-date information and maintenance/safety tips,” said Bill Dawson, vice-president, Maintenance Operations & Engineering, Ryder.  “We were the first — and remain the only — in the industry to provide this kind of rich content in one location, to fleets whose safety and businesses depend on it.  As many brace for cold temperatures, we aim to continue to be a trusted, reliable source that drivers and fleet operators can count on.”
