Ford Motor Company has awarded a new contract to DHL, to provide freight management services under its Lead Logistics Partner solution. Under the contract, DHL Supply Chain will manage the movement of prototype parts from suppliers to Ford’s R&D locations around the world.

This new contract builds on a long-standing relationship between Ford and DHL, where the LLP model has been implemented for the inbound supply to manufacturing of its production cars across Europe and Asia. DHL has been appointed as Ford’s global provider of freight management, driving standardisation and efficiencies across the business. 

Todd Starbuck, Global LLP President, at DHL Supply Chain said: “We are delighted to have been appointed as Ford Motor Company’s single provider of global freight management services. This new contract builds on our longstanding relationship with Ford and our established LLP model, and we look forward to working closely together over the coming years.”
