During GATS, Ryder will offer all attendees – not just Ryder pre-owned
vehicle purchasers – special event pricing at 20 percent off the first
year of a prepaid preventive maintenance plan. Attendees who visit the
Ryder booth can also enter into a daily raffle for a chance to win a
prize pack that includes a gas grill, Yeti cooler, and much more.

Ryder pre-owned vehicle purchasers now have the added benefit of
selecting from a variety of Ryder SelectCare Preventive Maintenance
packages that can range from one to three years. Customers now receive
greater flexibility by having the option to prepay for their package or
finance it along with their vehicle as one monthly payment. By selecting
preventive maintenance services, customers will have access to Ryder's
network of 800 service facilities and 5,900 certified technicians at
economical pricing for the full term of the package. In addition,
customers receive discounted pricing for any necessary repairs, parts,
and tires outside of the preventive maintenance services.

During GATS, Ryder's Manager of Finance & Vehicle Sales Development,
Jason Russell, will deliver the opening remarks during the Partner in
Business Seminars, which Ryder has sponsored for the past six years. The
free, one hour Partner in Business Seminars take place each year during
GATS and are conducted to assist fleet managers, owner operators, and
commercial transportation professionals with improving their bottom line
through reducing costs, promoting efficiency, and making better business
decisions. Attendees will also receive a copy of the Partners in
Business manual that provides practical financial tips as well as tax
and equipment management strategies.

pre-owned vehicle inventory includes commercial and heavy-duty trucks
consisting of tractors, trailers, straight trucks, panel and cube vans,
