“As a logistics provider, we make a promise to our customers that their shipments will arrive at their expected destinations at the right time and in the right condition,” said Eugenio Sevilla-Sacasa, Vice President of International Supply Chain Solutions for Ryder System, Inc. “The carriers we work with handle some of the most challenging aspects of executing on our promise – which include meeting tight delivery windows while operating safely on the road. As anyone in the transportation industry knows, the process is never as easy or straightforward as it sounds and this is why the carriers we work with are such an important part of our success and our customers’ success.”

“We also know it’s important to recognize the sophistication and high-quality customer service of the trucking industry in Mexico, where the logistics and carrier industries have evolved over the years adding advancing technologies to overcome new challenges,” said Eugenio Sevilla-Sacasa. “Mexico has world-class carrier companies that make it possible to provide seamless service to our customers, many of whom also have operations in the United States and Canada. We carry out an annual evaluation to measure our carriers’ performance and help provide targeted feedback that can be used as a basis for continuous improvement.”
