Exel has won two supply-chain management contracts in the United States and Europe from the US Glass manufacturer, Visteon Corp., formerly known as Ford Automotive Products Operations and today the world“s second-largest independent supplier of automotive systems. In the United States, Exel has been selected to manage and operate Visteon“s aftermarket and service-parts supply chain. Exel says it has designed a solution for warehousing, value-added services, transportation and technology that will provide real-time order and shipment visibility exceeding Visteon“s expectations for supply-chain integration. In Europe, Exel has been asked to develop a network to support all of Visteon“s logistics needs. The contract includes the implementation and management of Visteon“s European freight network, which initially involves managing the transition from Ford Motor Co.“s infrastructure. Exel says it also will provide reengineering, procurement and management of all freight movements for Visteon“s 24 European plants. In the future, Exel will be responsible for providing carrier and sourcing recommendations through standardized tendering procedures. “Both of these new contract wins with Visteon strengthen Exel“s global positioning as a leading provider of supply-chain solutions,” said Leigh Pomlett, president of Exel“s Automotive Worldwide division. “The company“s global scope and expertise is able to provide a comprehensive service for Visteon and we are keen to develop this into a true global partnership.” Visteon has 80,000 employees working in more than 130 technical, manufacturing, sales and service facilities in 23 countries. U.K.-based Exel had revenue last year of more than US$ 5 billion and employed 50,000 people in 120 countries worldwide.
