Ryder Canada launches on-demand maintenance, opens service network to private fleets

March 12, 2014

Ryder Canada has launched a new maintenance and repair solution for Canadian fleets. Ryder On-Demand maintenance solution provides private fleet owners and for-hire carriers with pay-as-you-go preventive maintenance and repair with access to Ryder Canada’s nationwide network of 40 service locations and more than 400 trained technicians.

For a small monthly fee, private fleets can access the service and pay for services as needed.

“New complex engine technologies and tightening emissions and safety regulations make it more challenging than ever to maintain a large fleet of vehicles,” said Jerry Brown, Ryder Canada vice president and general manager, Fleet Management Solutions.  “Many fleet owners no longer have the capital or resources to hire and train qualified technicians and invest in maintenance infrastructure.  With Ryder On-Demand, fleet owners get consistent, professional service from a company with more than 80 years of experience in heavy, medium and light truck maintenance.”

Customer vehicles are maintained by Ryder Canada’s OEM-trained, certified technicians, who are cross-trained in multiple disciplines, including the latest electronics, components, and warranty work. State-of-the-art maintenance facilities feature leading-edge diagnostics technologies and computer-assisted scheduling based on vehicle types and driving habits.

In addition to maintenance and repair, customers have access to 24/7 roadside assistance, extended repair hours, and available replacement vehicles.
