Security Magazine has ranked Ryder number one for its security practices in the Transportation, Logistics, Supply Chain and Warehousing industry sector.
The ranking, a result of the 2009 Security Benchmarking Survey, will be published as part of the fourth annual Security 500 feature.

The 2009 Security 500 Benchmarking Survey tracked 16 vertical market sectors, using a combination of available public and private resources and interviews to identify the most intense industries and organizations facing significant risk and requiring aggressive risk mitigation strategies. The survey was developed based on feedback and input from industry leaders, as well as the Security Executive Council, an international professional membership organization for leading senior security executives.

"Ryder's number one ranking validates our efforts to implement world-class security processes and standards that ensure the safety and security of our own and our customers' people, products, and assets," said Greg Swienton, Ryder chairman and CEO.

Ryder's Global Security team is charged with identifying and implementing proactive measures to reduce theft and losses; improve supply chain, cargo, and fleet security; and protect the company's and customers' physical, personal, and intellectual assets. Ryder has a number of programs in place to improve security around the company's rental and lease vehicle fleet. Ryder is also certified as a third party logistics provider (3PL) in the Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) for logistics operations in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.
