    Principles of Business Conduct

    Ryder’s Principles of Business Conduct are in place to ensure that we conduct our business fairly, honestly, and ethically – everywhere we do business, every day.

    Our Principles are especially important at Ryder because our entire business model is built on trust. We operate behind the scenes, as trusted partners, managing critical functions for many of the biggest and most well respected companies in the world. As a publicly traded company with thousands of shareholders, including our own employees, we’re counted on to operate ethically and protect their investments. And, because we facilitate commerce through globally connected supply chains, we have a special industry leadership role in the areas of safety and security. In each of our roles we must continually earn trust. That’s why it’s essential that we hold ourselves to consistently high standards in all that we do.

    Our Principles form the playbook that keeps us on the right track so we can maintain the trust we’ve worked so hard to earn. To make it easy for you to apply the guidelines in your daily work, we’ve organized the Principles according to Ryder’s four Leadership Competencies: Character, Judgment, Relationships, and Results. When you demonstrate the behaviors that live up to our competencies, and follow the Principles outlined in this document, you’re contributing to Ryder’s reputation as a trusted, ethical, and responsible enterprise. Maintaining this reputation has many benefits. But most of all, it makes us proud to say we work at Ryder.

  • Sustainability


    When businesses outsource their critical fleet management, transportation, and supply chain functions to Ryder, they can tap into the company’s expertise, infrastructure, and investment in the latest technologies to make them safer, more efficient, and environmentally responsible.


    We are committed to helping build strong, sustainable communities. From giving grants and donations to encouraging our people to volunteer, we’re constantly finding new ways to get involved and make a difference.


    As an industry leader, we have a unique opportunity and ability to continually reduce the environmental impacts of our operations and those of the tens of thousands of customers we serve. Whether it’s deploying alternative fuel vehicles, optimizing distribution networks, or operating energy-efficient warehouses, Ryder helps customers reduce emissions and drive long-term value for their businesses. In particular, Ryder is focused on environmental issues related to fuel consumption, vehicle emissions, facility energy use, and automotive waste management.


    Ryder devotes considerable resources to ensure that our culture of integrity is steadfast and that our employees and suppliers understand their responsibility to uphold our high standards of ethics and lawfulness. This includes clear documentation of our Principles of Business Conduct, recurring training to reinforce these requirements, monitoring and auditing procedures, and a robust reporting and enforcement program to identify violations and concerns.


    Customers and investors tell us that our 42,000 employees are the critical link for excellent service and profitable growth. That’s because our people bring to life our core values of trust, expertise, collaboration, innovation, and safety each and every day. As a result, we can attract and retain diverse talent and do what is right for our customers, the environment, our company and society.


    The EPA SmartWay® Program is central to Ryder’s overall emission reduction strategy and is a key sustainability initiative to promote energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG). With best-in-class SmartWay Verified Technologies, Ryder offers its customers industry-leading vehicle performance, optimized fuel efficiency, and reduced carbon emissions. Ryder has been recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency with a SmartWay Excellence Award, for demonstrating top environmental performance by effectively hauling freight with energy efficient SmartWay carriers.

With nothing more than a vision and a $35 down payment on a Model A Ford truck, Jim Ryder started a business hauling concrete in 1933. It’s been quite a journey, and we’re excited about the future, but we’ll always stay true to our humble, entrepreneurial origins.
