Domino's Pizza rewards Ryder with supply chain award
Ryder System, Inc., a leader in commercial transportation and supply chain management solutions, announced Thursday that it has received the 2010 Domino's Supply Partner Award.

Ryder is one of only seven companies that were recognized with the 2010 Domino's Supply Partner Award.
"We pride ourselves on our commitment to customer service, operational execution, safety, and expertise in the food and beverage sector," Robert Sanchez, Ryder’s President of Global Fleet Management Solutions, said.

This is the 20th year Domino's has been recognizing its partners with the Supply Partner Award. This award is given annually to a select group of partners who consistently deliver outstanding results in support of Domino's operations. Selection of the winners is based on each partner's performance in areas such as vehicle uptime, safety, problem-solving capabilities, damage prevention, and equipment availability, among others.
"Ryder is a very important partner of Domino's who helps us to continually improve our business and supports our start-up operations in new markets," John Macksood, Executive Vice President of Supply Chain Services of Domino's Pizza, said. "We appreciate all of their efforts and hard work, and value the successful, long-standing partnership that we have established over the years."
Ryder started doing business with Domino's in 1978 with a lease contract for one refrigerated straight truck. Since that time, the relationship has grown and in 2007, Ryder was awarded all of Domino's leased transportation business, which includes a fleet of 213 tractors, 260 refrigerated trailers, and one refrigerated straight truck that services 18 Domino's supply chain centers in the U.S. and two locations in Canada.
