Ryder Named Among Food Logistics’ Top 3PL & Cold Storage Providers

Ryder System, Inc. announced it is listed among Food Logistics’ Top Third-Party Logistics & Cold Storage Providers for 2021. The honor marks Ryder’s ninth consecutive year on the list. Each year, the publication’s editorial team and advisory board selects the leading third-party logistics (3PL) providers that demonstrate a commitment to continually improving their operations and meeting their customers’ needs.

“The changing tastes and demands of consumers continue to create complexities for the food and beverage industry, which the pandemic exacerbated,” said Steve Sensing, President of Global Supply Chain Solutions for Ryder. “The sudden swing to e-commerce caught many companies off guard. The lesson learned, of course, is just how critical it is to have a flexible, nimble, and agile supply chain. That means diversifying your sales channels and partnering with a 3PL that has the people, assets, and technology solutions in place to help you weather marketplace fluctuations.”

Last year, Ryder—which serves nine of the top 10 companies in the food and beverage industry—announced two solutions that proved critical during the pandemic. The company expanded its e-commerce fulfillment solution to include food-grade compliant facilities, which deliver to at least 95% of U.S. consumers in two days or less. And, Ryder rolled out a one-of-a-kind, real-time visibility and collaborative logistics platform called RyderShare. The technology enables all parties involved in moving goods through a supply chain to easily see potential problems, take pro-active action to course-correct, and find efficiency gains–an ability particularly valuable to the food and beverage industry, where maintaining time and temperature controls is critical.

“3PLs and cold storage providers continue to be the heart and soul of the cold chain. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic and other supply chain disruptions, these companies continue to showcase agility, resiliency, strength and innovation,” said Marina Mayer, Editor-in-Chief, Food Logistics and Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “They’ve pivoted in a time of crisis, armed themselves with solutions that matter, and protected people and product along the way.”
