MIAMI -- November 20, 2012

For the third consecutive year, Newsweek’s annual Green Rankings has
recognized Ryder System, Inc. (NYSE:R), a leader in commercial transportation
and supply chain management solutions, as one of the top green companies in
the U.S. Ryder ranked fourth among the U.S. Transportation and Logistics
industry sector in this year’s rankings, moving up one spot from fifth place
last year. Ryder maintained its overall position of No. 111 out of the 500
largest publicly traded corporations.

“Ryder is uniquely positioned to advance the environmental sustainability of
commercial transportation and logistics, because the economic benefits we
offer our customers come with environmental benefits as well,” said Chairman
and Chief Executive Officer Greg Swienton. “When companies outsource their
transportation and logistics functions to us, they have access to the latest
vehicle technologies, expert maintenance services, next generation alternative
fuels, and industry-leading logistics engineering – all designed to work
together to deliver optimal performance, along with improved fuel efficiency
and reduced emissions.”

The Newsweek Green Rankings cuts through the green chatter and compares the
actual environmental footprints, management (policies, programs, initiatives,
controversies), and reporting practices of big companies. Newsweek
collaborated with leading environmental research providers, Trucost, and
Sustainalytics to create the most comprehensive rankings available by
assessing each company’s environmental footprint, management of that
footprint, and transparency. Published annually since 2009, this project has
been billed as the first effort by a major media organization to rank
companies based on their actual environmental footprint, management of that
footprint, and sustainability communications. For more information about the
