Exel – a Westerville, Ohio-based provider of supply chain management and a Deutsche Post World Net company – announced it will provide dedicated delivery services to dealers serviced by Chrysler LLC’s Mopar parts distribution center in Naperville, Ill. Exel will deliver Mopar parts to 270 Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge dealers in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan and Wisconsin. Mopar is the original equipment parts manufacturer and distributor for Chrysler LLC.
According to Exel, the new contract will create an estimated 36 jobs in Naperville, including drivers, supervisors and routers. Exel now provides dedicated delivery services to 10 Mopar PDCs – nine in the United States and one in Toluca, Mexico. Exel says its centralized delivery service support team utilizes a suite of dedicated fleet technology solutions – such as electronic proof-of-delivery, wireless communications and scheduling applications – in addition to effective fleet management to drive efficiencies and optimize delivery routes.
“Exel’s dedicated delivery solution was based on 20 years of experience delivering parts for Chrysler and uses the latest technologies to achieve measurable results in both cost and service,” says John Aben, director of business development for Exel’s automotive business unit.
