Ryder Introduces First Mobile Application To Help Customers Find Truck Rental, Maintenance And Fueling Locations

Stocks in this article: R

Ryder System, Inc. (NYSE: R), a leader in transportation and supply chain management solutions, today announced that it has launched “Ryder Locator,” a free smart phone application that helps customers easily and quickly find their nearest Ryder truck rental, maintenance, or fueling location in the U.S. and Canada. With just a touch, customers can quickly search for and display nearby Ryder facilities and find out about specific services offered at each location. Whether commercial customers need to rent a truck, service a vehicle, refuel, or connect with roadside assistance, Ryder’s easy-to-use mobile locator app puts instant service at their fingertips.

“As a leader in the transportation industry, Ryder has a long history of introducing new technology to help customers run their fleets more efficiently,” said John Gleason, Senior Vice President, Sales & Marketing, for Ryder Fleet Management Solutions. “The new Ryder Locator app helps to meet our customers’ expectations for information at their fingertips, while facilitating productivity with instant and easy access to Ryder location and service information.”

With the Ryder Locator app, searches can be filtered by location (city, state, and/ or zip code) or service offering (rental, maintenance, or fuel). Once a location is identified, fleet managers can find turn-by-turn directions via a user-friendly map, or use convenient one-touch calling to talk to an on-duty Ryder employee. In addition, the app gives customers instant access to 24/7 emergency roadside assistance – without having to search for a telephone number. Designed for iPhone®, BlackBerry®, and Android™ devices, the new Ryder Locator application is free and is available immediately on iTunes®, Android™ Market, and BlackBerry App World ™.
