Maxon Lift outsources warehousing function to Ryder

LBR Staff Writer Published 09 August 2017

Trucks and trailer liftgates manufacturer Maxon Lift has opened five Ryder-operated warehouses across the US.

The warehouse facilities are located in California, Texas, Indiana, Georgia, and Pennsylvania.

The freight management group of Ryder System offers transportation management to Maxon for planning and executing outbound shipping to its distributors from the warehouses.

Maxon marketing and business development vice president Anton Griessner said: “Ryder is a process-driven organization with a huge footprint. Maxon has been able to tap into Ryder’s process stability and quality control.”

Maxon, which is operating for over 60 years, chose Ryder to restructure its business model and minimize lead time for the market of light duty products.

Ryder uses cost effective and time sensitive transportation solution to provide warehousing and outbound shipments on a day-to-day basis for Maxon.

Griessner added: “We needed to take the four-week lead time that we were so familiar with, and shorten it to two days for this product line. It’s impossible to accomplish a task like that on your own, especially from an economic standpoint. The expectation from the end-user and our distributors is that our lift gates will be available today and shipped out by tomorrow.

“Thanks to having the five Ryder regional warehouses located where they are, in the market regions we need, and having our lift gates available for delivery within 24 hours, we’ve been able to grow across all five regions.”
