GEFCO has signed a new contract with Jaguar Land Rover for the movement of new Range Rovers between UK production plants, storage compounds and ports of exit. The new deal follows a review by Jaguar Land Rover Limited of its domestic carriers.
GEFCO is investing in a fleet of new transporters (MAN tractor and LOHR Euro 5 units) specifically tailored to Jaguar Land Rover Limited’s transportation needs.
Due to the increased number of vehicles that can be carried, the new fleet will also deliver environmental benefits, using fewer transporter miles to deliver the same number of vehicles.
The new transporters will all be fitted with the QUALCOMM tracking system, which tracks the real time movement of vehicles from collection to delivery; enabling more efficient route planning.
The expansion of GEFCO’s connection with Jaguar Land Rover means that GEFCO will increase its market share in the automotive sector.
Speaking about the contract, John Stocker, Finished Vehicle Logistics Director, GEFCO UK, said: “We are delighted to be building on our association with Jaguar Land Rover Limited. As a company, GEFCO is committed to providing our customers with the most efficient, cost-effective and sustainable services, tailored to meet business needs.
"With this new contract, we are looking forward to continuing to offer the very highest service levels to Jaguar Land Rover Limited.”
