Ryder to Sponsor 77th Annual National Beer Wholesalers Convention
Business Development Boss Rueben Stokes to Discuss Natural Gas Fleets
Ryder System is spreading the word that it will serve as a Diamond Anniversary sponsor of the 77th Annual National Beer Wholesalers Association convention being held September 28-October 1 in New Orleans.
“Ryder helps customers make improvements from the brewery to the distribution center to the delivery trucks, generating smarter transportation and supply chain strategies,” Ryder senior national sales VP John Deris says in the company’s NBWA announcement.
“One example of how Ryder supports customers is with the adoption of natural gas fleets,” the company said.
Stokes on Monday
Ryder advanced fuels business development director Rueben Stokes will discuss Making the Switch to Natural Gas: What to Consider, When to Act and How to Do It on September 29 at the Hyatt Regency New Orleans.
He’ll detail Ryder’s experience deploying natural gas vehicle technologies and sharing industry expert advice about successfully transitioning fleets to the alternative fuel.
Ryder has more than 27 million miles of natural gas operating experience, having deployed more than 600 compressed natural gas and LNG/liquefied natural gas trucks with fleets in California, New York, Michigan, Texas, Arizona, Utah, Georgia and Louisiana.
In Ryder’s biggest NGV deployment to date, customer Anheuser-Busch announced just this month that it would convert its entire Houston fleet – a first for the brewer – to CNG using trucks from Ryder.
