Ryder receives 2018 Green Fleet Award for driving new technologies for environmental sustainability

October 9, 2018. Ryder System, Inc., a leader in commercial fleet management, dedicated transportation, and supply chain solutions, today announced that it will receive the 2018 Green Fleet Award in the “special” category from the Sacramento Clean Cities Coalition, a government-industry partnership designed to reduce petroleum consumption in the transportation sector.

   “Our goal is to make a broad range of zero-emission medium and heavy-duty vehicles available for rent, lease, and sale,” said Chris Nordh, Ryder Senior Director of Advanced Vehicle Technologies & Energy Products. “We want to help fleets move to these new, innovative technologies and maximize their inherent efficiencies, while reducing the level of risk companies would normally have to shoulder alone. Ryder’s advance technology vehicles allow companies to do what’s right for their customers and for the environment.”

   The 2018 Green Fleet Award ceremony will take place during the welcome reception at the NorCal Clean Technology Forum & Expo in Sacramento, California, which features the latest in low-emission and zero-emission on- and off-road technologies, community clean air action, funding opportunities, as well as insights from policy and regulatory leaders at the state and federal levels.
