Finished Vehicle Transportation Optimization

The Finished Vehicle Transportation Optimization committee works to develop strategies, programs and processes to more efficiently utilize the resources of the finished vehicle logistics infrastructure supporting North American operations for the benefit of all parties involved. The vehicle logistics industry is facing capacity constraints, an expectation of increasing volume, driver shortages and potential new regulations (e.g. carbon footprint). This group collaborates to pool and consolidate current and planned finished vehicle distribution patterns without revealing future marketing strategies or pricing agreements.
