Sherwood Foods Case Study
In the demanding food distribution industry, few companies have succeeded and grown like Sherwood Food Distributors. Founded in Detroit in 1969 by Alex Karp and Earl Ishbia, the company is now one of the largest independent distributors of meat products in the U.S.
Shipping 16 million pounds of food products weekly – many of which are highly perishable – in perfect condition and on-time is key to Sherwood serving its 5,000 customers. Missing one tight delivery window can significantly impact customer satisfaction and business operations.
Ryder’s Full Service Lease solution provides the management expertise and customizable fleet to deliver outstanding service to Sherwood Food Distributors. In addition, Ryder’s on-site maintenance operation and team of expert technicians ensure optimal fleet performance.
