Ryder System Inc., a provider of commercial transportation and supply chain management solutions, has announced it received the 2010 Domino's Supply Partner Award.
"We pride ourselves on our commitment to customer service, operational execution, safety, and expertise in the food and beverage sector," said Robert Sanchez, Ryder's president of Global Fleet Management Solutions. "We are proud to be recognized by Domino's for our commitment to transportation excellence and appreciate our long-standing partnership which continues to flourish after three decades."
This award marks the 20th year Domino's has been recognizing its partners who deliver outstanding results in support of the company's operations. Selection is based on each partner's performance in areas such as vehicle uptime, safety, problem-solving capabilities, damage prevention and equipment availability.
Ryder started doing business with Domino's in 1978 with a lease contract for one refrigerated straight truck. Since that time, the relationship has grown, and in 2007, Ryder was awarded all of Domino's leased transportation business, which includes a fleet of 213 tractors, 260 refrigerated trailers and one refrigerated straight truck that services 18 Domino's supply chain centers in the U.S. and two locations in Canada.
