Ryder celebrates 35 years in the UK

Ryder is celebrating 35 years operating in the UK market. Ryder established a truck rental business in the UK, in August 1971, with 250 highly specialised Bedford, Ford and Commer-Dodge vehicles with a distinct yellow livery.

This was followed by the acquisition of Fisher Renwick a year later to take it into the then fledgling contract hire business. Today, Ryder has a turnover of £193.1 million.
