We Handle Everything

If a product has to move by truck—and almost everything does—there's a good chance Ruan has hauled it or something similar. We have experience hauling goods in all of the following industries:

Retail

Retail

Speed means everything to the retail supply chain. Running out of product at critical times can devastate the bottom line. Our retail customers rely on Ruan because they know their goods will arrive where they need to be—on time, every time.

Manufacturing

Whether handling just-in-time inbound shipments of raw materials, interplant movements, multi-stop deliveries to distributor/dealer networks or anything in between, Ruan has the resources and expertise to get it done, and get it done right.

Grocery

Grocery

An inefficient supply chain is a surefire way to spoil a company's bottom line—especially in the grocery industry where delivery delays result in empty shelves and dissatisfied customers. We make it easier for them to feed America by promising—and delivering—fresh goods, on time.

Bulk Earth Products

Ruan is flexible to meet the needs of bulk earth product customers. Some days they need one load, and other days they need 20. Our team members and technology innovations ensure that our clients' needs are always met. 

Bulk Food Grade

Bulk Food Grade 

We've been transporting food-grade products since the early 1950s. With complicated logistics, sanitation measurements and tracking, food-grade bulk transport is a significant challenge. Nevertheless, Ruan's professional drivers and robust training have made us a leader in this field, and our innovations are helping customers ship more for less.

Metals

Ruan has been successfully managing dedicated flatbed steel delivery operations on behalf of our clients for more than 20 years. The many technological innovations we've introduced to our customers, including tracking technology, in-cab computer systems and Conestoga trailers, have increased efficiency and improved their bottom lines.

Food Processing

More than 40 percent of Ruan's business is food related. To maximize margins, Ruan works with our food-related customers to  streamline processes, improve distribution systems and cut transportation costs.

Waste

Ruan works with waste disposal and recycling companies to identify efficiency opportunities and investigate productivity solutions—like incentive-based pay and improved equipment. Past start-ups have helped improve payloads by 10 to 15 percent and have increased each driver's daily turns from five or six roundtrips to eight or 10.

Industrial Gases 

Industrial Gases

Ruan's team is dedicated to efficient transport and 100 percent on-time delivery of cryogenics—but safety is our first priority. Our drivers receive special hazmat training, and our maintenance team ensures their equipment is in top condition. This commitment to safety and training is why we are leader in industrial gas transporting, with a safety record that's second to none.

Chemicals

Ruan has developed unique strategies for our customers in the industrial gases and chemicals industries, including Airgas, Praxair, Air Liquide, Hydrite and Linde.  Ruan's commitment to safety and training is why we are a leader in industrial gases and chemicals transporting.

Medical Supplies

Complicated supply chains and short deadlines are common in the medical supply industry. To help eliminate surprises, Ruan team members are constantly searching for inefficiencies in the supply chain. We have equipment to handle any receiving constraints. And, our professional drivers are experts in multi-stop, driver-assisted deliveries.

Dairy

Ruan's professional drivers are trained to test milk and take samples. We have the agility to respond to cows' often-fluctuating milking schedules.
