Ryder expands last-mile delivery to meet shipping demands

July 22, 2021
With the opening of two new hubs, in Milwaukee and Philadelphia, and 100 additional locations, the expansion of Ryder Last Mile aims to cover 95% of the U.S., Puerto Rico, and Hawaii within a two-day timeframe.

Ryder System Inc. has expanded its Ryder Last Mile platform, a customizable, multi-tiered delivery solution for big and bulky goods. With new hubs in Milwaukee and Philadelphia, Ryder is positioning its customers closer to their end-consumers to meet the growing demands for delivery in two days or less.

The 75,000-square-foot hub in Milwaukee became operational on July 19 and the 108,000-sq.ft. hub in Philadelphia will be operational by October. Both new facilities will service multiple customers across various industries and provide access to the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, and Upper Midwest regions. With more than 100 additional locations, the Ryder Last Mile network can cover 95% of the U.S., including Puerto Rico and Hawaii, within a two-day timeframe, the company said.

“This latest expansion of our last-mile delivery network puts our customers even closer to their customers—the end-consumers—in some of the most densely populated regions in the U.S., where capacity constraints can be a daily challenge,” Steve Sensing, president of supply chain solutions for Ryder, said.

Ryder Last Mile offers customizable delivery options with five tiers of service:

  • Front door
  • Over the threshold
  • Room of choice
  • White glove delivery, which includes assembly, hook-up, and installation
  • Deluxe service, which includes pre-delivery inspection and assembly to maximize delivery success and reduce returns

Sensing added that “by increasing our footprint, we improve our customers’ speed-to-market, which is critical in today’s highly competitive environment and vital to our customers’ short- and long-term growth strategies.”
