"Ryder is always focused on enhancing its customer experience," said
Rich Mohr, Vice President & Global Product Manager, Rental Operations
for Ryder. "This new partnership enables us to do just that. With Uber
Central, we're able to improve routing and planning for our transfer
drivers, save on fuel costs, and increase shop productivity. This
exciting platform enhances our commercial transportation services and
creates an added convenience for our customers."

With Uber Central, Ryder can identify trends and opportunities in how
the Company manages pickup and delivery of its assets as well as
transportation of Ryder customers' drivers to a replacement vehicle in
the case where they need roadside assistance or to assist with rental
pickup and drop off.

"Uber Central is focused on providing reliable and convenient
transportation to the people that matter to your business, even if they
don't have the Uber app or a smartphone," said Brittany Wray, Head of
Uber Central. "We're excited to see how innovative companies, such as
Ryder, partner with Uber Central to evolve their operations and their
customer experience to create a competitive advantage."

In 2017, Uber launched Uber Central, which allows organizations to
request, manage, and pay monthly for rides for others at scale. Ryder
customers who receive rides via Uber Central do not need to have an Uber
account or the app on their phones to use the service as Ryder
coordinates the details via the Uber Central web portal. In addition,
Uber Central provides Ryder with an efficient solution to manage invoice
and payment processes centrally and offers access to clear and robust
information on ride details through the Uber Central web portal.
