Supplier Diversity

It's our mission to help customers achieve their full potential, something we could never accomplish without the help of a diverse group of top-notch suppliers. That's why our Small Business and Supplier Diversity Program is always forming new partnerships with qualified small and diverse businesses that share our same goals. Together, we work to deliver exceptional customer service, drive economic growth, build global market share, and make sure that our customers are growing their businesses in the most effective way possible.



Our goals

  • Incorporate small business and diverse suppliers into Ryder's sourcing processes
  • Affirm our commitment to small business and diverse suppliers in the communities in which we conduct business
  • Meet all customer expectations
  • Provide opportunities for small business and diverse suppliers to develop highly effective relationships with Ryder
  • Comply with the contracting requirements of our customers and various government agencies
  • Grow relationships with local communities
  • Strengthen and expand our supplier base while providing equitable opportunity for all suppliers
