FVL Rail-Haul Away OEM Visibility Workgroup

Haul-away carriers, OEM's, and railroads working together to improve supply chain visibility of finished vehicles from the OEM production facility through to exiting the rail yard for delivery to the dealer.  Visibility is currently lacking between the 3 stakeholders (OEM’s, Railroads and Haul-Away carriers), resulting in congestion at the rail yards and delay of delivery to the dealers.  This group is focused on improving electronic visibility/reporting which will improve the ability to properly manage assets (trucks) and alleviate congestion.  This group is open to new members.  For more information, click here
