Ryder Introduces RyderGyde™, the Mobile Commercial Fleet Management App, to Customers in Canada

Users in Canada Can Now Utilize the Free RyderGyde App to Schedule
Maintenance, Log Fuel Receipts, and Expedite Roadside Assistance

MIAMI–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Ryder System, Inc. (NYSE: R), a leader in commercial fleet
management
, dedicated
transportation
, and supply
chain
solutions, announced today that RyderGyde™ is now available to
its customers in Canada. RyderGyde, the free mobile application and the
only one of its kind allowing users to do everything from quickly rent a
commercial truck from Ryder Rental location to schedule maintenance
appointments in 60 seconds or less, now offers the same fleet management
digital features available in the United States to Ryder customers in
Canada.


“The Canadian market presents tremendous growth opportunities for
RyderGyde and its users as there are complex fleet management challenges
in Canada,” said Dennis Cooke, president of Fleet Management Solutions,
Ryder. “Each feature on RyderGyde has been developed based on driver and
fleet manager interactions, and we’re confident that our customers in
Canada will provide feedback that will be used to further enhance the
RyderGyde experience for all users.”

In addition, RyderGyde has completed enhancements to its roadside
vehicle repair functionality with the launch of a roadside wizard. This
new feature allows a driver who is experiencing a vehicle breakdown to
scan the vehicle identification number and send the issue and location
information to a maintenance dispatch center, leading to a support
vehicle onsite in minutes.

“With the RyderGyde roadside assistance wizard, a vehicle that breaks
down in the U.S. and Canada can now receive quicker support with a
streamline digital experience, as opposed to phone calls out to a
service center,” adds Cooke. “Our customers are always seeking better
ways to run their business and the RyderGyde roadside assistance wizard
gives our customers an efficient digitized tool to get rapid roadside
support.”

With the RyderGyde mobile app, drivers, fleet owners, and fleet managers
in both the United States and Canada now have access to the customized,
streamlined digital experience to more efficiently manage their fleets.

RyderGyde users can view and manage which vehicles within their fleet
need servicing and group vehicles that are most important to a fleet
manager. A combination of a vehicle’s odometer reading and telematics
data determines when a vehicle is ready for maintenance, and it is
automatically flagged in the application, as well as upcoming preventive
maintenance appointments, which are tracked through the scheduling
feature on RyderGyde. Ryder’s more than 800 service locations are also
displayed in North America through the mobile app. The RyderGyde
portfolio of features also includes being able to browse through Ryder’s
used vehicle inventory.

To create an even more robust fueling solution, Ryder customers can also
log their fuel receipts using image reading technology within RyderGyde
to quickly enter and store the information. The RyderGyde fuel receipt
capture feature mitigates challenges around fuel tax reporting.
RyderGyde users in the U.S. can also view their Ryder contracted fuel
rates and rates of other fueling stations to empower them to make the
right decisions regarding their fueling.

The RyderGyde™ app is available on iOS and Android devices and can be
downloaded on the App
Store
and Google
Play
