Ryder Sets Sights on Oilpatch Trucking

MIAMI, FL. — Ryder is drilling for gold in the oil patch by launching a series of 3PL and other logistics services aimed at the energy industry.

The new services include dedicated fleets, transportation management, and fleet leasing and rental services.

The plan, according to a statement from Ryder, is to find “better ways for customers to transport equipment to job sites, improve visibility throughout the supply chain, and maximize up-time and transportation solutions that safely move oilfield and offshore shipments from one location to another.”

“Companies that drill for oil and gas are facing significant transportation challenges due to the increase in road transportation requirements with the expanding natural gas industry in the U.S.,” said Senior Vice President of Ryder Dedicated, John Sonia.

“We can put our industry-leading safety and maintenance practices, skilled professional drivers, logistics engineering expertise, and unmatched transportation buying power to work for oil and gas businesses looking to increase efficiencies, reduce costs and improve safety and service in their operations.”

Ryder has oilfield experience already; for example, the company manages all port deliveries to support 18 offshore rigs in the Gulf of Mexico with 61 dedicated drivers and a network of transportation partners.
