Since its founding in 1933, Ryder has become a leading provider of integrated logistics and transportation solutions. As businesses exhaust cost-cutting measures in the traditional areas of price and quality, the ability to reduce costs in the delivery of products, warehousing and other logistics and transportation areas is becoming increasingly important. Ryder's solutions are custom-designed to help businesses improve customer service, reduce inventory and speed products to market. Today with an annual revenue of $5 billion and assets of $5.8 billion, Ryder ranks 309th on the Fortune 500. Ryder's common stock, traded under the ticker symbol "R" on the New York Stock Exchange, is one of the 20 stocks that comprise the Dow Jones Transportation Average and is also a component of the Standard & Poor's Transportation Index. Ryder serves customer needs throughout North America, in Latin America, Europe and Asia. Fortune magazine ranked Ryder as the most admired company in the highway transportation industry in 1997 and 1998 and second-most admired in 1999. In 2000, Ryder received a higher overall rating than its competitors in the Fortune survey. For the third consecutive year, Inbound Logistics magazine recognized Ryder in 2000 as the top third-party logistics provider. Ryder is the largest third-party logistics company in the U.S. It provides comprehensive supply chain solutions, lead logistics management services and e-Commerce solutions that support customers' entire supply chains, from sourcing of inbound raw materials through distribution and delivery of finished goods. Ryder's management of the supply chain targets customers' objectives such as faster order-cycle times, reduced inventory expense, fewer facilities, greater flexibility and improved customer service. Ryder's traditional product offerings range from full-service leasing, commercial rental and programmed maintenance of vehicles to integrated services such as dedicated contract carriage and carrier management. This product line has over 14,000 customers who lease or rent approximately 170,000 vehicles in the U.S., Canada and the United Kingdom. Leasing vehicles (both full service leasing and the Ryder Citicorp Finance Lease are offered) helps businesses preserve capital that would otherwise be invested in transportation equipment. Ryder also provides vehicles and support services to businesses on a short-term rental basis to meet customers' peak demand, or to replace full service lease vehicles being serviced or awaiting delivery to customers. Some businesses also choose Ryder' s Programmed Maintenance, Environmental and Safety Services to help them manage their fleets.
