Ryder Introduces Innovative Safety Technologies and Sets Standard for New Vehicles Coming into Its Rental Fleet

Ryder System, announced that all new vehicles that come into its North American commercial rental fleet will now include innovative safety technologies, such as forward looking radar and collision mitigation systems. The new vehicles will become the standard specification for Ryder’s commercial rental fleet as the Company responds to increasing demand from customers looking to improve fleet performance, safety, and driver job satisfaction.

Ryder has offered these innovative safety technologies as an available option to its ChoiceLease customers for several years and the Company is now making those technologies standard for the first time within its Commercial Rental product line for new vehicles being delivered into service this spring. Ryder’s fleet of vehicles incorporates many other advanced technologies including automated manual transmissions, roll stability controls, and telematics. The Company also utilizes video monitoring and management systems in its Dedicated Transportation Solution (DTS) fleet. Ryder continually monitors emerging fleet technologies and works closely with leading technology providers and equipment manufacturers to provide feedback around functionality, usability, and adaptability.
