Auto Truck Group awarded ship-through status for ProMaster

June 18, 2013

Auto Truck Group (ATG) has been awarded ship-through status for Ram ProMaster cab chassis and cutaway models. ATG is an upfitter specializing in design, manufacture and installation of truck equipment. Its Bartlett, IL, and Fort Wayne, IN, facilities will handle the upfitting process.

The ship through code is 99757A for Bartlett, and 99751A for Fort Wayne. The ProMaster models that can be ordered include VF2L02, VF3L04, VF3L05, VF3L32, VF3L34 and VF3L35. When fleets order the ProMaster and use the Auto Truck Group ship-through code, the vehicles will be sent directly to Auto Truck Group’s facility for upfitting. Once the upfitting is complete, the vehicles will be returned to the factory to be entered into Chrysler’s transportation system to the end destination.

“We are excited to offer the Ram ProMaster products via ship through to our customers,” said vice president of sales and marketing Dennis Jones. “Quality, consistency and cost effective delivery are reasons for using a ship-through program.”

 Ship-through is primarily used by companies who have large fleets of vehicles, or whose fleet is spread out over a large area, or both. Currently, Auto Truck Group has ship through capabilities with five OEMs.
