Ryder System Inc., a provider of transportation and supply chain management solutions, has opened a truck rental, leasing, and maintenance facility at 3500 Market St. in Ventura, Calif., to offer comprehensive transportation solutions to customers in the area. As Ryder’s 16th service location in Southern California, the new facility will provide maintenance to a diverse fleet of commercial vehicles from Ryder’s existing customers in the area, as well as truck leasing and rental services.
Located on 2.1 acres, the 28,000-square-foot service facility is an upgrade of Ryder’s previous half-acre location in Oxnard and has the capacity to grow as Ryder expands in the local market. It features three maintenance bays and a preventive maintenance bay with vehicle diagnostics equipment. The facility also will provide fueling services to Ryder customers in the near future.
“Customer demand has grown steadily in Southern California,” says Robert Sanchez, president of Global Fleet Management Solutions for Ryder. “We want to be sure that we can provide the best infrastructure and technology available in the marketplace to service those customers. We look forward to serving our customers with this new facility and assisting them with all of their fleet and transportation needs.”
