UPS Logistics to revamp Ford's delivery system to dealers

Published on .

Dearborn, Mich.--Ford Motor Co. announced Wednesday it has hired UPS Logistics Group to revamp the company's automotive delivery system to its dealers. UPS will create Web-based tracking systems, similar to the company's online tracking service for its package deliveries, that will allow Ford and its dealers to track individual vehicles from production through delivery. Ford expects the system, which will be implemented in phases beginning in March, to reduce delivery times by as much as 40% and to trim the company's multibillion-dollar vehicle transportation costs. The network is expected to be fully operational in 2001 and eventually will be rolled out for use by customers.
