Dennis Cooke, Ryder President of Fleet Management Solutions, said, “Seattle is currently the second-largest metropolitan area in the United States for growth, and Marysville is a growing city in Washington, so it was a natural fit for our next facility location. As Ryder looks to better serve our new and existing ChoiceLease and commercial rental customers, we wanted to ensure we had a premier shop in an optimal location and this new facility fits both those needs.”
As the state’s largest and northern-most Ryder maintenance facility, and just three miles from the newly opened Paine Field Airport, the Marysville location offers nearly 16,000 square-feet including nine work stations, a 1,000-unit capacity, and two 24/7 mobile maintenance units. Ryder Mobile Maintenance allows local fleets to schedule maintenance outside of the traditional 8 AM to 5 PM window. When their vehicles are idle, mobile maintenance offers a seamless, real-time experience that eases the challenge of tight delivery windows and hours-of-service regulations fleet drivers face.
The new site includes an exterior covered truck wash bay and features a full-service rental counter for businesses in need of a commercial vehicle. In addition, the new location features several new conference rooms equipped with enhanced technology for both internal and customer meetings. The facility will also soon offer a diesel fuel service island for Ryder customers.
