Logent recently announced that they, through their subsidiary Logent Automotive Logistics, are taking over the distribution of finished Automobiles from the VCC plant in Torslanda. Cars to the greater Stockholm Area, the “Mälardalen”-area (geographical region adjacent to Lake Mälaren) and Northern Sweden will be handled by Logent. The further extension of services into customs- and documentation shows increased confidence in Logent, already already handling cars at the Car Terminal in the Port of Gothenburg.
The increased co-operation covers control, coordination and shunting, i.e. Yard Management, of about 200 000 finished cars at the Torslanda Plant. Furthermore Logent will be responsible for all customs- and documents handling in connection with export flows from both the plants in Torslanda (Sweden) and Gent (Belgium).
– Our commitment and willingness to continuous efficiency improvement and finding synergies through coordination of the entire distribution from factory to retailer were key to our being awarded this responsibility, says Anders Borgström, CEO of Logent Automotive Logistics.
Logent will also provide an intermediate international helpdesk and a transport booking function.
