Motor industry giant picks Menlo

Automotive component supplier Dana has chosen Menlo Worldwide Logistics to provide logistics services to 19 manufacturing plants in Europe.

Menlo, part of the Con-way group, has been working for Dana’s North American operations since 2008, covering both inbound and outbound transport to sites in the United States, Canada and Mexico.

Menlo will roll-out a programme across Dana’s European supply chains over the next three years to manage all outbound product distribution as well as inbound carrier operations to Dana’s 19 plants.  

Operations will be supervised from its facility in Eersel, Netherlands, the methodology includes shipment tracking and comprehensive visibility, carrier bookings control, cost auditing and relevant KPI monitoring.
