Additionally, Ryder will add a new category to the awards program next year to recognize the most innovative carrier of the year.

“For many years, we’ve scored our carrier award winners based on overall service quality and operational excellence, and these values will continue to be critical,” said Dave Belter, vice president and general manager of transportation management for Ryder. “However, as we move forward, two factors will carry the most weight: a carrier’s commitment to investing in technology and in embracing innovation. Those two factors have become the drivers of everything else. That’s why we’re counting on our carrier partners to adopt our visibility and collaboration technology RyderShare, the ultimate digital platform for all goods moving across the supply chain and a new standard for all of our transportation management partners.”

Ryder manages a network of thousands of carriers to help move $7 billion in freight purchased and/or executed on behalf of its customers annually. The recipients of this year’s Ryder Carrier Quality Awards are:
