Penske Logistics, which already handles a significant portion of Ford Motor Co.’s logistics work, has been selected to provide logistics expertise at Ford’s Dearborn Truck Plant in Dearborn, MI. The Dearborn plant produces the popular F-Series trucks.
“Ford Motor Company is a longstanding and valued customer,” said Penske Logistics president Vince Hartnett. “We’re pleased to serve their needs in this new capacity.”
Penske will provide manufacturing support services for Ford including sequencing, metering, repack, small-lot, and container-management services. The company already is the lead logistics provider for Ford, as well as providing manufacturing support, dealer delivery, in-plant, material handling, warehouse and transportation management services across Ford product lines in the U.S., Canada, U.K., and Brazil.
Penske Logistics is a wholly owned subsidiary of Penske Truck Leasing, providing supply chain logistics and management services.
