He is featured in the August 2011 issue of Security magazine.

“Through improved relationships and collaboration with international government security agencies and critical business partners, Ryder has established itself as an industry leader in transportation and supply chain security”

“Through improved relationships and collaboration with international government security agencies and critical business partners, Ryder has established itself as an industry leader in transportation and supply chain security,” stated Sanford Hodes, Vice President of Safety, Health & Security for Ryder. “Bill has not only helped ensure high security standards at our operations and for the customers we serve, but has led the effort to share best practices with industry partners and government regulators to improve overall security for the supply chain and transportation industry.”

Mr. Anderson has led the development of Ryder’s layered security approach that includes hardened infrastructure; robust security systems; stringent, procedural compliance; expert security personnel; and senior level management oversight and accountability. His global security team proactively identifies and implements measures to reduce theft and losses; improves supply chain security; develops, communicates and audits security programs at Ryder facilities; communicates specific guidelines for the protection of company physical, personal and intellectual assets; oversees all investigations initiated by Ryder; and provides crisis management training, support and response. Anderson’s approach to enhancing enterprise security is to drive accountability at the operational level while providing the training, tools, processes and support to execute an effective security program. He has influenced Ryder’s security culture by proving that having strong security processes and programs ultimately provide businesses with a competitive advantage that allows them to prevent loss and accelerate recovery.
