Ebrex Polska wins mandate as logistics operator for Ford. Ebrex Polska has signed a contract to manage activities for national storage and distribution of Ford spare parts in Poland. Parts Distribution Centre is located in Teresin at ProLogis Park Teresin (Warsaw 3rd zone), where Ebrex Polska has leased 10,700 m² of warehouse space. The lease transaction was led by Axi Immo.
The contract between Ford and Ebrex includes complete logistics service from warehousing and order management to delivery and after sales service of Polish dealers, replenishment of about 16,000 parts from central warehouse of Ford in Cologne.
The business cooperation between Ford and Ebrex in international transport, warehousing and distribution started in 2006. In the beginning, during most difficult initial period of spare parts deliveries to the Russian market, as a transportation provider the company managed to reduce costs and delivery time. The new agreement is widening the scope of services provided by Ebrex which currently also delivers to about 65% of Russian Ford dealers.
“Decision to entrust Ebrex Polska with logistics services was affected by factors such as wining Polish tender for Logistics Provider, cost reduction opportunities, commitment for excellent service, providing flexibility, fast and efficient solutions within a slim organization. Not without significance was the commitment of the company's management at all stages of the existing cooperation”- said Alfred Eckl, Ford of Europe Operations Manager, PS&L Distribution Centres Sweden, Italy, Poland, Russia.
