Ryder is upgrading the rental and service reception facilities and car parking facilities for customers at a number of locations. These upgrades are partly due to the launch of the retail maintenance service in the UK. Until now Ryder has only maintained its own vehicles and customer vehicles on account. With the launch of retail maintenance, Ryder is opening up its workshops and range of maintenance services to any commercial vehicle on a “pay-as-you-go” basis.
Part of the investment is in environmental improvements, upgrading Ryder’s bulk fuel storage tanks, introducing drainage interceptors and full retention separators and improving yard surfaces across the estate.
“The investment is two-fold. Firstly it is to improve the reception areas for our customers at our rental and maintenance depots to make them more suitable for the additional customers resulting from the launch of our retail maintenance service,” commented David Hunt, vice president and managing director, Fleet Management Solutions (FMS), Ryder Europe. “Secondly, following a comprehensive audit of our sites, a number of environmental improvements have been implemented. These measures demonstrate Ryder’s commitment to the market and our determination to be the leading provider of HGV vehicles and related services in the UK.”
