Vascor to Handle Pre-Owned Vehicle Supply Chain

May 21, 2009
Vascor, the APL Logistics and FUJITRANS joint venture will begin handling pre-owned vehicle logistics.

The North American automotive supply chain company Vascor will add pre-owned vehicle logistics services to its existing new finished vehicle marshalling services.

“We’re extremely excited to be tackling this ‘like-new’ logistical challenge,” said VASCOR President Jim Dunn, whose ISO-certified company serves nine automotive manufacturers and sales entities. “We are confident that we’re meeting a longtime need for more high-quality, standardized supply chain management in the remarketed industry.”

VASCOR’s vehicle marshalling services include fenced, lit and paved marshalling facilities with 24/7 security; dedicated loading and unloading areas; drive-away transportation; and the ability to partner with physical auction sites and repo yards. All are backed by a state-of-the-art yard management tools and systems-based efficiencies such as online condition reporting; VIN tracking, and access to upstream remarketing sources.

“Many of these services mirror what we have been doing for years in the new vehicle sector to support automotive OEMs, and they leverage much of the same infrastructure,” said Dunn. “So even though we’re new to marshalling remarketed vehicles, we’re a recognized vendor for this service to the automotive OEMs.”
