Ryder System Inc., a leader in commercial fleet management, dedicated transportation, and supply chain solutions, has been named by Forbes as one of “America’s Best Employers,” ranking 62nd out of 500 on the list.

The 500 employers on the list were chosen based on an independent survey of 20,000 American employees working for large U.S. companies and institutions, and U.S. divisions of international firms. They were asked anonymously through several online panels if they’d recommend their employer, or any other employers in their industry, to a potential employee.

The mix of respondents in the sample is representative of the overall U.S. workforce. The survey was conducted on companies in all industry sectors employing more than 2,500 workers in the U.S.

“Many of the world’s most respected brands trust Ryder to manage their most critical fleet and supply chain functions,” said Robert Sanchez, Ryder chairman and CEO. “Approximately 50,000 businesses rely on Ryder employees, most of whom work on our frontlines and who take great pride in making deliveries, managing inventory, and servicing vehicles to keep our customers’ businesses running. We are fortunate to have the best people in the industry who are committed to delivering on the promises we make to customers, and who enable us to maintain our reputation as a leader in the markets where we compete.”

Ryder was also recently named among Fortune’s World’s Most Admired Companies. Ryder is a $6.6-billion commercial fleet management and supply chain solutions company, with operations in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Europe, and Asia.
