Ryder System Inc. said it has partnered with technology firm Decisiv to create a system to monitor maintenance for large and for-hire truck fleets.

Decisiv’s Web-based platform captures and measures maintenance service events in real time, allowing management of multiple service providers and streamlining the flow of information to fleet managers, according to the company.

When the system is used with Ryder’s Managed Maintenance Solutions, Ryder said fleets have access to its 700 service locations and 5,000 technicians.

“Ryder has the best technicians in the industry, and a national network of service locations to ensure fleets are covered wherever they go,” Dennis Cooke, Ryder president of global fleet management solutions, said in a statement. “Our partnership with Decisiv enhances this world-class maintenance offering by helping to seamlessly integrate maintenance technology systems into one user-friendly dashboard, making it easier than ever for large fleets to do business with Ryder.”

“The powerful combination of Decisiv’s Web-based platform with Ryder’s extensive network and fleet management and maintenance expertise gives large private and for-hire fleets unparalleled coverage, as well as anywhere, anytime and any device access to initiate and manage their maintenance requirements,” Dick Hyatt, CEO of Decisiv, said in a statement.

Ryder’s Supply Chain Solutions ranks No. 10 on the Transport Topics Top 100 listing of U.S. and Canadian for-hire carriers.
