Mazda expands deal with Ryder to Mexico dealers
Ryder System said Monday it has agreed a contract extension with Mazda North American Operations, expanding its service to the distribution management of auto parts throughout its Mexico network of dealers.
Under the expansion, Ryder will manage cross-border transportation of Mazda parts into Mexico and distribution to all Mazda dealers in Mexico, with the contract running through October 2011.
Ryder has provided distribution services to Mazda in the United States since 1991 and in Mexico since 2005. Ryder will handle distribution of parts from Mazda's distribution center in Olive Branch, Miss., to Ryder's cross-dock in Monterrey, Mexico, and then through to delivery at all of Mazdas dealers in Mexico.
