Ryder selects Goodyear as preferred tire supplier in 2021

Ryder System announced that Goodyear will become the preferred supplier of tires, retreads and tire management solutions to its vast network of fleet customers across the United States and Canada beginning January 1, 2021.

“Tires are one of the most critical and costly maintenance investments for us, and the decision to change supplier brands was not taken lightly,” said 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.”

The partnership of Ryder, a leader in commercial fleet management, and Goodyear brings two transportation companies together to build on their shared goal of providing fleets with the products, technology and service needed to optimize time on the road.

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to serve Ryder and its fleet customers,” said 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.”
