GUELPH, Ontario: ColdTech Commercial and Ryder System Inc have signed a contract that will see the transportation company provide distribution and storage services to the refrigeration products manufacturer.

Miami, Florida-based Ryder will manage four distribution facilities for ColdTech. They are located in Vancouver, Toronto, Atlanta, Georgia and Ontario, California. Ryder will also provide last-mile delivery service throughout all of North America. In addition to the local management teams at each of the four facilities, Ryder administrative and customer service functions for ColdTech will be centralized at a Ryder-operated facility in Roanoke, Texas.

Guelph, Ontario-based ColdTech sells its refrigerators, freezers, and sandwich prep tables directly to customers through an online portal. It also offers customer service 24-hours per day.

“In evaluating whether to hire a third party logistics provider, ColdTech was looking for a supply chain partner that could provide both a large supply chain network across North America and the flexibility to adapt to the anticipated growth of the business,” said Domenic Dotto, ColdTech Commercial general manager.
