Ryder Picks Goodyear Starting in 2021

Ryder System Inc. will begin sourcing its tires, retreads and tire management solutions from Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. on Jan. 1, 2021. The agreement covers both the U.S. and Canada.

“Tires are one of the most critical and costly maintenance investments for us, and the decision to change supplier brands was not taken lightly,” says Tom Havens, senior vice president and global chief of operations of Ryder’s Fleet Management Solutions business. “We have chosen to partner with Goodyear for its reliable products, vast service network, commitment to innovation, technological advancements in new tire products and the many shared values that exist between our two companies.”

Ryder has nearly 800 service and maintenance locations across the U.S. and Canada.

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to serve Ryder and its fleet customers,” says Dave Beasley, vice president of commercial for Goodyear North America. “One of the most exciting benefits of this new partnership is the ability for our two organizations to work together to advance the development of new tires, tire management technologies and solutions to help reduce Ryder’s customers’ downtime through improved cost-per-mile performance.”
