The engagement with both customers started with RyderElectric+ electrification advisory services. The RyderElectric+ team relied on data analysis, site assessments, range and payload needs, among other factors, to select the best vehicle and charging fits for the customers’ operations. These multi-year Ryder ChoiceLease agreements for multiple light-duty electric cargo vans will help each company begin to adopt EVs into their fleets and support their ongoing logistics needs.

"In working closely with our customers and EV technology providers, Ryder continues to innovate fleet management with efficient, low-carbon strategies that support the operational goals of our customers," says Tom Havens, president of Fleet Management Solutions for Ryder. "The introduction of EVs to Ryder’s lease and rental fleet, and the simplicity of RyderElectric+, allows us to identify and provide EV solutions that fit the operational needs for companies such as Land ‘N’ Sea and Servientrega."

As a long-standing Ryder customer, Land ‘N’ Sea is the first to lease both the BrightDrop Zevo 600 and Ford E-Transit through the recently announced RyderElectric+ EV solution. Land ‘N’ Sea will be deploying the full-service lease units in South Florida. To support its EV expansion, Land ‘N’ Sea also plans to install charging stations with the support of Ryder and charging partners.

"These electric vehicle additions to our fleet fit our needs well for several of our routes in terms of mileage, while the payload has plenty of capacity. RyderElectric+ gives us the comprehensive package we need to make EV adoption simple," says Mike Conners, president of Land ‘N’ Sea Distributing. "Being able to work with our regular Ryder team and shop network makes this an easy transition."

Through RyderElectric+, Servientrega aims to advance its commitment to reducing emissions across its truck fleet. The logistics company will be using BrightDrop Zevo 600 vehicles in South Florida to carry parcels that will be shipped to destinations in South America.

"Servientrega has had a commitment to lessen its impact on the environment for more than 30 years. Further reducing the emissions of our truck fleet has been made possible this year through Ryder’s offering of the BrightDrop electric vans," adds Washington Rojas, executive manager of Servientrega International Inc. "Now we can cover all our routes from Homestead to Palm Beach, picking up more than 200 packages on a daily charge and with state-of-the-art technology supporting our drivers."
