Logent initiates collaboration with Ford Motor Company AB – will take over part of the Swedish distribution of new vehicles

Logent has signed a freight contract with Ford Motor Company AB, whereby Logent will from 1 January 2014 take over parts of the distribution of Ford’s new vehicles from a number of ports to various dealers in areas of Sweden.

– We look forward to a long-term and strategic relationship where we are able to develop and streamline Ford’s vehicle logistics. This is an important contract for Logent, through which we become a major distributor of Ford’s vehicles for the Swedish market. Being entrusted as a new supplier for Ford Motor Company AB shows that we have a competitive overall concept for vehicle distribution, says Anders Borgström, CEO Logent Automotive Logistics.

The collaboration includes distribution for the Swedish market, with Logent transporting vehicles from the ports in Gothenburg, Malmö, Wallhamn and Södertälje to dealerships around Sweden. The environmentally friendly and efficient distribution solution is based partly on a unit train with a 24-hour cycle and daily departures from Gothenburg, and also includes freight by truck. The solution uses dedicated terminals in Gothenburg, Stockholm, Sundsvall and Umeå, which are part of Logents nationwide intermodal network of ports and combined terminals.
