Ryder launched its new Ryder Fuel Receipt mobile app which the fleet management company says will simplify required interstate fuel tax reporting for its commercial rental customers in North America.

Ryder’s new app is available to Ryder Commercial Rental customers and is Apple IOS and Android compatible.

With the new app, customers can use their mobile device to capture an image of their non-Ryder fuel receipt, add a few details about the fuel purchase location, price, and then submit the information to Ryder by the click of a button.  Ryder will then match the fuel on required interstate fuel tax reporting and store the fuel purchase history in the Ryder Fuel Receipt app for up to four years.

“The launch of our new Ryder Fuel Receipt app furthers our commitment to innovation and the environment, as we receive up to 25,000 individual fuel receipts a month from our customers and this new technology will now reduce the amount of paper used during the fuel tax reporting process,” said Ryder CIO Melvin Kirk.  “Ryder is committed to setting the industry standard for IT-led business innovation that optimizes its customer experience while also accelerating performance and reducing costs.”

This technology investment follows Ryder’s recent launch of its new paperless rental process mobile tablet app for quicker rental check-in and check-out and its new rental maintenance mobile tablet app for faster repairs.

Ryder rental facilities also feature digital displays that show safety videos and other information designed to help customers better understand the special requirements for operating technologically-advanced commercial vehicles.

Ryer Commercial Rental provides customers with rental trucks on a short-term basis to meet their needs for supplemental capacity.  Ryder stocks over 37,000 recent-model vehicles at more than 500 rental locations across the U.S. and Canada. All rental vehicles are backed by Ryder’s Rental Service Guarantee.  To rent a truck, call 1-800-345-9282 or visit reservations.ryder.com.
