Ford picks DHL for spares distribution

Ford has signed an agreement with DHL Supply Chain for distribution of spare parts in the Nordic region and the Baltic states.

DHL will handle about 23,000 different spare parts from its distribution centre at Örebro in central Sweden.

Stock orders are shipped the next day or the day after. Emergency orders are shipped overnight or the next morning. Some of the Ford workshops in the Stockholm area use the Örebro warehouse as a local distribution centre, which is a further development of the agreement.

“From experience, we know that DHL can fulfil our requirements of fast and reliable transports to our Ford dealers and workshops, which is essential for us,” said Klaus Heinen, European purchasing manager at Ford.
