Ryder launches retail mobile maintenance service called Torque by Ryder

July 21, 2023
Ryder's new mobile maintenance service, Torque by Ryder, is meant to allow commercial fleets the flexibility to not commit to a long-term maintenance contract, while still receiving quality service.

Ryder System, a transportation, logistics, and fleet management company, has launched Torque by Ryder, a new service offering retail mobile maintenance at a business’s location with no long-term contract.

All services offered through Torque by Ryder are accessible and transacted via desktop or a mobile device to schedule, receive, track, and pay for maintenance done by Ryder’s mobile maintenance trucks and trained technicians. These services include preventive maintenance services to trucks, trailers, and liftgate applications, as well as maintenance for tires, lighting, brakes, A/C, exhaust, suspension, door, camera, electronic logging device, and collision avoidance systems. The company said the new business unit is also positioned to provide off-hours maintenance, minor repairs, and Federal DOT inspection services for fleets and trailers. 

Torque by Ryder operates separately from Ryder’s existing fleet maintenance locations with its own vehicle technician workforce, allowing for a transactional experience. 

“Combining the convenience of mobile maintenance with the simplicity of a transactional model allows us to deliver a superior service to retail maintenance buyers,” says Jordan Wagner, vice president and general manager at Torque by Ryder. “Torque by Ryder is the future of uptime for commercial fleets that do not want to commit to a long-term maintenance contract, while still receiving a service that is backed by Ryder.”
