Ryder creates mobile app for fuel tax reporting

RyderRyder System, a provider of commercial fleet management, dedicated transportation, and supply chain solutions, announced it has launched its new Ryder Fuel Receipt mobile app that will make it easier for its commercial rental customers in North America to stay compliant with required interstate fuel tax reporting documents.

Ryder’s new app is available to Ryder Commercial Rental customers and is Apple (IOS) and Android compatible.  With the new app, customers can use their mobile device to capture an image of their non-Ryder fuel receipt, add a few details about the fuel purchase location, price, and then submit the information to Ryder by the click of a button.  Ryder will then match the fuel on required interstate fuel tax reporting and store the fuel purchase history in the Ryder Fuel Receipt app for up to four years.

“We receive up to 25,000 individual fuel receipts a month from our customers and this new technology will now reduce the amount of paper used during the fuel tax reporting process,” said Ryder Chief Information Officer, Melvin Kirk.

This technology investment follows Ryder’s recent launch of its new paperless Rental process mobile tablet app for quicker rental check-in and check-out and its new rental maintenance mobile tablet app for faster repairs.  Ryder rental facilities also feature digital displays that show safety videos and other information that helps customers better understand the special requirements for operating today’s more technologically-advanced commercial vehicles.
