Ryder System Inc. opened a full-service maintenance facility in Norton, Mass., reflecting the strong growth the company is experiencing in the greater Boston area.

The facility offers customers access to Interstate 495, Route 24 and Route 95, servicing the greater Boston area, as well as Cape Cod and parts of central Massachusetts, according to the Miami-based carrier. Ryder recently outgrew its West Bridgewater, Mass., facility, which will continue to operate, and the two will work in tandem to support the customer base in the region.

Ryder Supply Chain Solutions ranks No. 12 on the Transport Topics Top 100 list of the largest for-hire carriers in North America.

The facility sits on 19.4 acres and features a 24,000-square-foot building and 13 maintenance work bays outfitted to provide maintenance for Ryder ChoiceLease and rental customers. In addition, a two-lane diesel fuel service island is available for Ryder customers.

The Norton facility also features a full-service rental counter for businesses that need a commercial vehicle, and a 7,300-square-foot office that houses a rental reception and lease sales office, customer service area and a drivers lounge.

The site also accommodates a 2,160-square-foot drive-through wash bay with a fully automated truck wash system, a lube equipment room and a battery-charging room with storage space. — Transport Topics
