Ryder System is launching Ryder FleetCare, a Web-based fleet management tool designed to provide customers with access to information regarding the operation of their fleets. After successful testing in real-world conditions with Ryder customers, the Miami-based company has initiated a U.S. rollout through the fourth quarter of 2006.

“As one of the pilot companies for Ryder FleetCare, we found the tool to be extremely valuable in helping us manage and track our fleet performance by location,” says Kent Hittinger, national director of operations for Celebration Foods. “Scorecard reports are automatically delivered to our sales and operations people monthly, giving us the ability to analyze fleet performance and make better business decisions.”

Ryder FleetCare offers secure, immediate Internet access to a variety of performance metrics such as vehicle maintenance schedules, service calls, vehicle rental activity, fuel purchases and more, the company says; reports can be customized and sorted in a variety of ways to analyze information by location or vehicle.

“Ryder continually looks for ways to deliver value, service and a productivity edge to our customers that will help them to better understand and manage their fleet operations,” says Tony Tegnelia, president of U.S. Fleet Management Solutions for Ryder. “Ryder FleetCare provides customers an easy way to obtain the critical business information they need to improve fleet performance and refine their transportation functions.”
