Ryder System will handle distribution management of auto parts throughout Mazda’s Mexico network of dealers. Under an extended and expanded contract, Ryder will manage cross-border transportation of Mazda parts into Mexico and distribution to all Mazda dealers in Mexico. The extended contract will run through October 2011.
"Ryder's team has consistently demonstrated its ability to drive process improvements throughout our operations, both in the U.S. and Mexico," said Bobbie Rooney, manager of transportation and logistics for Mazda. "The decision to continue and expand our relationship with Ryder in Mexico is based on their ability to provide the services with speed and reliability at the lowest cost."
Ryder has provided distribution services to Mazda in the United States since 1991 and in Mexico since 2005. Under the new contract, Ryder will handle distribution of parts from Mazda's distribution center in Olive Branch, Miss., to Ryder's crossdock in Monterrey, Mexico, and then through to delivery at all of Mazda's dealers in Mexico.
