"With nothing more than a vision and a $35 down payment on a Model A Ford truck, Jim Ryder started a business hauling concrete in 1933. Five years later, a beverage distributor in Miami leased five trucks from him, and Ryder’s full-service leasing business took off. Since then, our company has grown into something we’re extremely proud of: a Fortune 500 industry-leader with annual revenues of more than $6 billion. It’s been quite a journey, and we’re excited about the future, but we’ll always stay true to our humble, entrepreneurial origins."
