Ryder Honored as a Top Logistics Provider in Brazil

MIAMI, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 2, 2007 -- Ryder System, Inc. (NYSE: R), a global leader in supply chain, warehousing and transportation management solutions, today announced it has been honored with the 2006 Volvo Logistics Award as a top logistics provider for the overall excellence of its logistics and cargo transportation solutions throughout Brazil.

"We are honored to once again be named the recipient of this prestigious award, especially with the input of so many of our customers," said Antonio Wrobleski Filho, Managing Director for Ryder Brazil. "This achievement is a result of our commitment to providing outstanding customer service and continually improving the quality of our logistics and transportation solutions."

Award recipients were selected by a survey of logistics professionals representing Brazil's top 1,000 companies. Survey respondents were asked to name the best logistics service providers based on eight areas of competency from inbound transportation to warehousing and distribution. Responses were unaided (no list of logistics service providers was given). This is the third year Ryder has been named a top logistics service provider since the award's inception in 2001.

The award is a joint initiative between the Center of Logistics Studies (CEL) at Coppead/Federal University in Río De Janeiro (UFRJ), Volvo Brazil and Tecnologística Magazine. This award is considered one of the most important logistics service honors in Brazil.
