Saddle Creek Chooses Ryder For Natural Gas Vehicle Solution

Ryder System, Inc. (NYSE: R), a leader in commercial transportation and supply chain management solutions, today announced that it has been selected by Saddle Creek Logistics Services (Saddle Creek) for a natural gas vehicle solution in two markets. With the agreement, Saddle Creek will lease 31 heavy duty compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicles from Ryder. Thirty of the CNG vehicles will run in the Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas region and be maintained by Ryder at its Fort Worth service facility, which is being upgraded to meet the unique compliance requirements for natural gas. One vehicle will operate in Saddle Creek’s Shreveport, Louisiana delivery fleet and be maintained at Ryder’s existing natural gas vehicle maintenance facility in that city.

With natural gas vehicles already available for lease and rent in California, Arizona, Michigan, New York, and Louisiana, Ryder now adds Texas as its newest market with a natural gas vehicle maintenance capability.

“Ryder is leveraging its leadership in natural gas to make it as easy as possible for customers to implement sustainable transportation solutions that also enable them to realize meaningful cost-savings and efficiencies,” said Ryder President of Global Fleet Management Solutions, Dennis Cooke. “When businesses want the most experience, knowledge, and expertise in natural gas vehicle solutions, they turn to Ryder.”

Saddle Creek, a 47-year-old, family-owned, third party logistics provider offers comprehensive integrated logistics services and has locations across the contiguous 48 states. Saddle Creek will take delivery of the new CNG vehicles during the first quarter of 2014. The CNG vehicles are part of a strategic initiative by Saddle Creek to reduce its carbon footprint and control fuel costs. The company already has more than 100 CNG tractors in its fleet of 430 vehicles, making it one of the largest CNG over the road tractor fleet in operation in the country. Saddle Creek also invested in its own fueling station at its Lakeland, Florida headquarters.
