Award honors companies that ensure a safe, efficient, and reliable food and beverage supply chain
MIAMI–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#RyderEverbetter—Ryder System, Inc. (NYSE: R), a leader in supply chain, dedicated transportation, and fleet management solutions, announces that it is named among Food Logistics’ Top Software and Technology Providers for 2022. This marks Ryder’s ninth year on the list which honors software and technology providers that ensure a safe, efficient, and reliable global cold food and beverage supply chain.
“This year’s winners are investing in and implementing emerging technologies, from mobile technology and Internet of Things (IoT) to food safety management, routing and scheduling, yard management and more,” says Marina Mayer, editor-in-chief of Food Logistics and Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “Today’s software and technology offerings provide flexibility, efficiency, safety, visibility, and more.”
Ryder made this year’s cut for bringing its one-of-a-kind visibility, collaboration, and exception management technology RyderShareTM into the warehouse. Initially focused on the transport of goods, RyderShare now includes a warehouse management solution for end-to-end visibility as goods move inbound on trucks to within the four walls of warehouses and distribution centers and, ultimately, outbound to their final destinations.
“Our customers are telling us that they haven’t seen anything else like this – that it’s the ultimate game-changer,” says Darin Cooprider, senior vice president of consumer-packaged goods for Ryder. “With this latest evolution of RyderShare, it truly is the first and only digital platform from a 3PL that provides a direct line of sight for goods moving through the supply chain –anywhere and anytime. And that’s especially critical for the food and beverage supply chain where reliability and time and temperature controls are paramount.”
In addition to RyderShare, the judges also considered how Ryder deploys automation and supporting technologies to address warehouse capacity and labor shortages. These include autonomous mobile robots and material handling equipment, goods-to-person systems, and wearables and AI vision. All of these technologies are mobile and scalable, enabling Ryder and its customers to flex with changing market conditions.
“Technology that enables flexibility, agility, and visibility is more than a competitive advantage. It’s absolutely fundamental to ensuring that our customers can keep their promises to their customers,” adds Cooprider.
As a fully integrated port-to-door transportation and supply chain logistics provider, Ryder serves nine of the top 10 companies in the food and beverage industry.
