Ryder introduces new e-fulfilment solution


Ryder is offering an alternative e-commerce solution to third-party marketplaces by fulfilling orders of manufactured products direct to consumers. This solution includes the opening of two purpose-built, multi-client facilities located in California and Texas, as well as the expansion of an existing Ryder-managed warehouse in Pennsylvania. The three facilities are slated to be fully operational by May.

Ryder’s new facilities are designed specifically for high-volume e-commerce fulfilment. Ryder is also offering manufacturers a streamlined on-boarding; specially trained Ryder teams with human resources, call centre, and IT capabilities; warehouse order and management systems; and full reverse logistics capabilities, as well as a complete suite of value-added services such as private labelling, bagging, gift wrapping, hand-written notes, and engraving.

Ryder piloted the service with a globally recognised small appliance manufacturer. Steve Sensing, Ryder President of Global Supply Chain Solutions stated, “During the period of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Ryder delivered a 268% increase over expected volume and achieved 99.9% on-time and in-full shipping accuracy.”
