Ryder Expands Last-Mile Delivery Network with New Hubs in Key Footholds

Ryder System, Inc., a provider in supply chain, dedicated transportation and fleet management solutions, announced the expansion of Ryder Last Mile, its customizable, multi-tiered delivery solution for big-and-bulky goods. With new distribution centers in the Nashville, TN, and Boise, ID, areas—two of the top 20 fastest growing metropolitan areas in the U.S.—Ryder addresses the growing need for last-mile delivery services for large appliances, furniture, exercise equipment and more, as populations shift with the ability to work remotely.

Just outside of downtown Nashville, the new Ryder Last Mile multiclient warehouse located in Smyrna, TN, opened in February at 100,000 square feet with room to expand to accommodate customer growth as well as seasonal and market fluctuations. Earlier this month, just outside of Boise, Ryder opened a 70,000-square-foot multiclient facility in Caldwell, ID, also with room for expansion.

“We made the decision to invest in the Nashville and Boise markets for this latest expansion of our last-mile delivery network because it aligns with our broader strategy to continually position our customers closer to their end-consumers,” said Steve Sensing, President of Supply Chain Solutions for Ryder. “With burgeoning populations and quick access to highway and rail networks, these two new markets increase speed-to-market, which is critical in today’s highly competitive environment and vital to our customers’ growth strategies.”

With more than 100 additional locations, the Ryder Last Mile network covers 95 percent of the U.S., including Puerto Rico and Hawaii, within a two-day timeframe.
