Manheim Logistics and DHL Supply Chain have formed an exclusive collaboration to develop a more holistic transportation management system that aims to give clients and carriers the most efficient and transparent transportation experience, according to the companies.
Between its Ready Logistics and Central Dispatch brands, Manheim Logistics facilitates approximately 10 million vehicle moves each year, according to the company. Meanwhile, DHL Supply Chain will apply its logistics expertise and technology to create unmatched capabilities and further establish Manheim Logistics as the transportation partner of choice for dealers, commercial clients, and carriers.
"The combination of our shared cultural values, vision for the future of automotive logistics, and complementary areas of expertise made DHL Supply Chain the perfect partner in our drive to simplify logistics for our clients," said Joe Kichler, vice president of Manheim Logistics.
Based on client feedback, Manheim Logistics laid out a bold strategy for the future, and this collaboration is designed to provide clients with the technology and support they need to thrive in a fast-changing market. Manheim Logistics will continue to work closely with clients and carriers while using DHL Supply Chain's advanced routing and technological capabilities.
DHL will use the company's Global Control Tower in Detroit and embedded logistics support teams across the U.S. to provide greater visibility on inventory flows and optimize vehicle moves. The company will also be integrating its transportation management system and in-house applications to provide more efficient and transparent shipping processes, support order management and vehicle verification, and provide an integrated user experience portal for shippers and operations personnel.
