Amid continued rise in e-commerce demand, Ryder System R has expanded its last-mile delivery (last step of the delivery process) channel with new distribution centers in Nashville, TN and Boise, ID. Ryder Last Mile caters to delivery needs for big and bulky goods such as large appliances, furniture, exercise equipment and the likes.

Earlier this month, R opened a 70,000-square-feet multi-client facility near Boise in Caldwell, ID. In February, the company opened a multi-client warehouse in Smyrna, TN, near downtown Nashville. The 100,000-square-feet warehouse has substantial room for expansion to accommodate customer growth, as well as seasonal and market fluctuations. The two markets have easy access to highways and rail networks and increase speed-to-market.

Steve Sensing, Ryder’s president of supply chain solutions, said, "We made the decision to invest in the Nashville and Boise markets for this latest expansion of our last-mile delivery network because it aligns with our broader strategy to continually position our customers closer to their end-consumers."
