Ryder to Combine Supply Chain Units

Ryder System said Friday it will combine its U.S. and International Supply Chain Solutions business units to form a single integrated organization to serve SCS customers globally.

Vicki O’Meara, president of U.S. SCS unit, will leave the company to pursue other interests, Ryder said in a statement. O’Meara is a 10-year Ryder veteran who has served in various senior leadership roles.

Ryder said it will conduct an internal and external search of candidates to lead the new organization.

Ryder System is ranked No. 5 on the Transport Topics 100 listing of U.S. and Canadian for-hire carriers.
