MIAMI, Fla.– Ryder System, Inc. announced the activation of its online, mobile-friendly Winter Preparedness Hub, where best practices are shared on how to keep fleets winter-ready throughout the chilly season, the company said.
Below-average temperatures are expected this winter, which can have debilitating effects on a fleet if not properly equipped.
“Last winter, we witnessed a great improvement in uptime and efficiency, and received positive feedback from customers, who said they turned to Ryder’s Winter Prep site for consistent, up-to-date information and maintenance/safety tips,” said Bill Dawson, Vice President, Maintenance Operations & Engineering, Ryder.
“We were the first-and remain the only- in the industry to provide this kind of rich content in one location, to fleets whose safety and businesses depend on it. As many brace for cold temperatures, we aim to continue to be a trusted, reliable source that drivers and fleet operators can count on,” he said.
Throughout the winter season, Ryder will also be sharing top tips from its top drivers who have extensive experience with operating vehicles through inclement weather conditions, from what to do to prep your vehicle when temperatures drop below freezing, to how to manage driving safely through heavy sleet or snow.
