Dedicated Contract Transportation.
No Hassles. No Overhead.
Switching your fleet to Ruan's Dedicated Contract Transportation (DCT) solution isn't just a good idea. It's a great one. Ruan's dedicated fleet management service provides complete door-to-door supply chain solutions without any of the hassles of owning and operating a private fleet. We handle everything so our customers can focus on their core competencies. We assume all risk, handle all labor issues and manage all of the equipment. Ruan delivers these benefits and more because transportation is our core competency.
Our ongoing investment in equipment and technology ensures your goods ship in late-model equipment the most efficient way possible. And we ensure compliance with all regulatory and safety requirements. Ruan's fleet management solution allows customers to free up capital, and some of our dedicated customers even benefit from an improved tax position.
Everyone on the Ruan team advocates for your company. We're dedicated to ensuring our customers' goods and materials get where they need to go as safely, efficiently and cost-effectively as possible.
Reducing Your Risk
All businesses face risk, and transportation is no different. Driving accidents, equipment failures, high insurance costs, state and federal regulations, labor relations and capital investment—all of these risks and requirements are assumed by companies operating private fleets. But when you choose Ruan's fleet management solution, you surrender this risk to us.
Caring For Your Brand
Switching your fleet to Ruan's DCT fleet doesn't mean giving up your branding. Ruan's partners routinely choose to maintain their branding on equipment to increase brand awareness or advertise.
Consequently, we are often the public face of your brand. That's a responsibility we take very seriously. We value each of the brands we are fortunate enough to serve, and each Ruan team member—from our owner John Ruan III to your professional driver—is committed to protecting yours.
Our dedicated services have been our core business for more than 20 years. During this time, we have refined and perfected new clients' start-ups so that disruptions are minimized and your scheduled loads continue to deliver as expected. In most cases, our clients' customers will not even realize that a change has occurred.
We're committed to 100 percent on-time delivery, 100 percent of the time—even during peak seasons and business surges, inclement weather and road construction.
We maintain an extensive pool of highly trained full- and part-time professional drivers, and we are pleased to retain approximately 80 percent of our customers' qualified drivers when they transition to Ruan. Each professional driver is assigned to a primary account, which allows him or her to learn your business and your needs. And our driver retention rate is five times better than the industry average—ensuring that you will have the same drivers moving your business for a long time.
With Ruan, you have instantaneous access to your shipment's status. Ruan drivers utilize GPS/EDI-capable devices that link directly to our logistics command center, which you can access anytime. Our robust technology solution—including best-in-class software and electronic logging devices in all tractors—ensures that your products are traceable and protected at all times.
Whether your business is retail, manufacturing, grocery or anything in-between, we're confident we can improve your supply chain—and your bottom line.
