“Euroway is widely respected, well run and has grown substantially over the past 18 years through organic growth and acquisition. Euroway has extensive expertise in maintenance and fleet management which complements Ryder’s offerings. Euroway’s innovative approach, range of services and strong commitment to customer service make the company a good fit with our own.”

Justin Lochhead, Euroway’s managing director who is joining the Ryder team, said: “Euroway’s customer portfolio includes major retailers, wholesalers, food distribution companies, manufacturers, third-party logistics providers and fuel distributors across the UK and Ireland.

“This solid base of contractual blue chip customers strengthens the combined business position in a range of key markets where there is strong potential for growth.

“I believe that Ryder’s national location network and wide range of vehicle options and services will bring huge benefits to Euroway’s existing customers.”

“We will initially be running Euroway in parallel with Ryder,” says Hunt. “Our focus will be to work closely with customers and suppliers to ensure that high service levels continue with minimum disruption.”
