Ryder announce agreement with hardware retailer

Ryder System, Inc. had announced that True Value Company, a retailer-owned wholesale hardware cooperative with approximately 4,400 independent retailer locations worldwide, is in the process of converting its fleet of leased and company-owned vehicles to include drivers, routing, and scheduling services under a Ryder Dedicated Transportation Solutions (DTS) agreement. Under the DTS agreement, Ryder has already begun to manage the transportation services at 10 of True Value’s 12 distribution centres across the US.

Rob Saper, Divisional Vice President Supply Chain Operations, True Value said, “Given the inability to lease tractors on a seasonal basis and with drivers being tougher to source, we needed a company like Ryder to step in to help us better serve our retailers through greater flexibility with access to more resources.”
