Ryder System Inc (NYSE: R) has received the Domino’s Pizza (NYSE: DPZ) Supply Partner Award for 2010. The award was presented at Domino’s recent annual supplier meeting.

Domino’s ESP program (Excellence through Supplier Partnerships) is a supply chain management program that develops relationships through a “360-Degree” performance evaluation process that promotes communication and continuous improvement between Domino’s and its suppliers. Ryder is one of only seven companies recognized with 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, president of global fleet management solutions, Ryder. “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 is the 20th year Domino’s has recognized its partners with the Supply Partner Award. This award is given annually to a select group of partners that consistently deliver outstanding results in support of Domino’s operations. Selection of winners 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 then, the relationship has grown and in 2007, Ryder was awarded all of Domino’s leased transportation business. This includes a fleet of 213 tractors, 260 refrigerated trailers, and one refrigerated straight truck that services 18 Domino’s supply chain centers in the United States and two locations in Canada.

As of the first quarter of 2011, through its primarily locally owned and operated franchised system, Domino’s operates a network of 9,379 franchised and company-owned stores in the United States and 70 international markets.
