Overview of the Principles of Business Conduct
This overview will help you become familiar with the Principles of Business Conduct. The overview is provided for your convenience, but you are expected to read and abide by the policies outlined the full text of the Principles as a condition of your employment. If you have any questions, contact your supervisor, human resources, or Global Corporate Compliance at 1-800-62RYDER or ethics@ryder.com. The Principles apply in every country in which we do business and to every employee, officer, director, and member of the Board of Directors. Every employee has the right and the obligation to promote ethical conduct, and to report known or suspected violations of the Principles, Ryder policy, or the law.

Reporting Mechanism and Policy Against Retaliation
If you reasonably believe that a violation has occurred, you must report that immediately to your supervisor, human resources, any manager, the Global Corporate Compliance Group at 1-800-62-RYDER or ethics@ryder.com, or the Director of Audit Services, and you may do so confidentially. You may make a confidential and anonymous report through the Ryder HOTLINE at 800-8152830, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, or by completing a report through ryder.com. There are no tracking or tracing mechanisms such as caller ID or other email identifiers. The reporting mechanisms are available to customers, suppliers, vendors, or anyone who has information about a suspected violation. Ryder forbids retaliation against any employee who files a good faith report. If you believe that you have experienced retaliation, contact any manager, human resources or the Global Corporate Compliance Group at 1-800-62-RYDER or ethics@ryder.com immediately.

Open Door Process
You may raise any work related concerns with any member of management without fear of retaliation. It is important that human resources and all appropriate levels of management have an opportunity to review your question, suggestion, or complaint. However, if you do not feel comfortable speaking with your supervisor, you may skip that person and go directly to the next level.

Conflicts of Interest
A conflict of interest may occur when an individual’s personal interests interfere or appear to interfere with Ryder’s interests. Perceived conflicts of interest can be as damaging as actual conflicts. We must avoid the appearance of impropriety at all times. Gifts: You may accept or provide nominal gifts worth less than $100.00 or entertainment if it does not influence, or have the appearance of influencing objective decision making; occurs infrequently; arises out of the ordinary course of business; involves reasonable, not lavish, expenditures; does not violate the other party’s company’s policies; and takes place in settings that are reasonably appropriate and fitting to you, your hosts or guests, and the business at hand. Financial Interests/Investment in Other Companies: You must ensure that your financial interests do not create conflicts, as it relates to ownership of securities, participation in financial offerings or accepting loans. Providing Services to Other Companies, Including Your Own: You should not serve as an advisor, consultant, or employee of a customer, supplier, vendor, or competitor of the Company (unless the Company is being paid for these services), without written approval. You may provide services to other companies such as a not-for-profit organization or your own business, without pre-approval if there is no actual or apparent conflict of interest or violation of the Company’s confidentiality policies, and you continue to meet the performance standards of your job. Reporting to Family Members and Others With Whom You Have a Close Personal Relationship/Nepotism: Working relationships between family members and close, personal friends will be evaluated as to the potential to cause an actual or apparent conflict of interest or the perception of impropriety. You must disclose these relationships to management and human resources for guidance and possible work reassignment. Further, you must ensure that your personal relationships do not interfere with your business responsibilities as it relates to inappropriate reporting relationships or providing business opportunities to them.

Ryder Retirement Plan
{ TC }

Benefits
The Retirement Plan for Employees of Ryder Truck Rental Canada Ltd. (the “Ryder Retirement Plan”) combines the two main types of pension benefits (defined benefit and defined contribution) so you can share in the advantages each one has to offer. These benefits are provided through a Pension Account and a Retirement Account, as described in detail later in this section under “Retirement Benefits”.

Fees and Expenses
All fees and expenses incurred in respect of the Ryder Retirement Plan shall be paid from the assets of the plan unless otherwise paid by Ryder in its sole discretion. Fees and expenses incurred in relation to a specific member account shall be paid from that member account unless otherwise paid by Ryder in its sole discretion.

Eligibility
As a full-time employee, you may join the Ryder Retirement Plan on the first day of the month that falls on or after the date on which you complete two years of continuous service* (or at an earlier date, if set out under the plan or as required by applicable pension laws). If you are a part-time or temporary employee, you may join the Ryder Retirement Plan on the first day of the month that falls on or after the date on which you complete two years of continuous service; provided that, in each of two consecutive calendar years, you had either: earned at least 35% of the Year’s Maximum Pensionable Earnings (YMPE*) as defined under the Canada/Quebec Pension Plan or worked at least 700 hours (or at an earlier date, if set out under the plan or as required by applicable pension laws). “Continuous Service”, “YMPE” and other key terms are defined later in this section. If you are a pensioner who is receiving monthly retirement income from the Ryder Retirement Plan and you are re-hired, you will not be eligible to rejoin the Ryder Retirement Plan, but will continue to receive your monthly retirement income. If you are a former employee who used to be a member and you are re-hired, you will be eligible to re-join the Ryder Retirement Plan when you meet the usual eligibility requirements.
Version: December 2006 Ryder Truck Rental Canada Ltd. Page 159

Funding
The employer contributions to the Ryder Retirement Plan in respect of your Pension Account benefits (under the defined benefit component of the plan) are determined based on the advice of an actuary. The employer contributions in respect of your Retirement Account benefits (under the defined contribution component of the plan) are determined based on the contribution formula under the plan, as described later in this section under “Retirement Account”. The Ryder Retirement Plan documents provide that any surplus under the plan may be used to reduce employer contributions or may be returned to Ryder, subject to approval by regulatory authorities and to the extent allowed under applicable legislation. If the plan is ever terminated, any surplus remaining after all plan liabilities have been satisfied will be returned to the employers, subject to approval by regulatory authorities. In addition, if the assets of the plan on termination are insufficient to meet the liabilities of the plan, pension benefits could be reduced. Members are not required or permitted to contribute to the Ryder Retirement Plan.

Tax Features
Employer contributions to the Ryder Retirement Plan on your behalf do not result in a taxable benefit to you. However, amounts paid from the plan upon retirement, termination of employment or death are subject to income tax unless they qualify for a tax-deferred rollover to another retirement plan under the Income Tax Act (Canada). Both the amount of the annual pension credit you earned in the Pension Account in the previous year and the employer contributions made on your behalf to the Retirement Account in the current year will reduce your allowable RRSP contribution room for the current year. For more details, please refer to the “Pension Adjustment” paragraph in the “Group Registered Retirement Savings Plan” section below.

The Pension Fund
The assets of the defined benefit component of the Ryder Retirement Plan are held by a financial institution. The assets of the defined contribution component are held in individual accounts by a life insurance company under the terms of an insurance contract.

Version: December 2006

Investment of the Defined Benefit Component (the Pension Account)
The assets of the defined benefit component of the Ryder Retirement Plan are invested in accordance with applicable legislation and with the following investment objective: to meet the defined benefit component’s obligations by maximizing long-term returns, taking into account Ryder’s risk tolerance, the long-term nature of the obligations and the financial position of the plan.

Investment of the Defined Contribution Component (the Retirement Account)
You determine how the assets in your Retirement Account will be invested from among the wide choice of investment options selected by the administrator. Excellent tools are available to help you decide the portfolio mix that is right for you. The decision as to which investments to select is up to you. It will depend on your personal financial situation, risk tolerance and investment goals. You are encouraged to seek your own independent investment advice in order to help you make your investment decisions. You may change your investment options for future contributions at any time. You may also transfer past contributions from one fund to another at any time. If you move money from a GIC before the maturity date, a market value adjustment may reduce the amount of interest paid. There is no fee for inter-fund transfers made via the internet or telephone, regardless of the number of such transfers. If you make more than four inter-fund transfers in a year by paper (not by internet or telephone) there will be a fee charged for each additional paper inter-fund transfer (in excess of four) which will be deducted from your account. The current fee in this regard is $25. This amount is subject to change. The administrator reserves the right, under exceptional circumstances, to impose restrictions on maximum fund withdrawal or transfer amounts where the withdrawal or transfer may risk the integrity of the fund.

Foreign Property Limits
It is your responsibility to ensure that the investments in your Retirement Account which are considered “foreign property” for purposes of the Income Tax Act (Canada) do not exceed the limits set out under the Income Tax Act (Canada). Any penalties that are assessed as a result of your Retirement Account exceeding these limits will be deducted from your Retirement Account. If you would like more information about the foreign property limits, please call 1-800-463-6361 (toll-free).

E-mails and voice mails are sometimes misdirected or forwarded and may be viewed or heard by persons other than the intended recipient. Employees should always create e-mail and voice mail communications with no less care, judgment and responsibility than they would use for letters or internal memoranda written on Ryder letterhead. Important: Employees should be aware that deletion of any e-mail messages or files would not truly eliminate them from the system. All e-mail messages are stored on a central back-up system.
