Review our case studies to see how we’ve helped major corporations turn logistical ideas into a reality.
Penske Logistics has been a supplier to General Motors (GM) for more than 75 years. With a reach that extends to more than 60 countries, logistics is no small challenge for GM. GMM is GM’s Mexican subsidiary and a vital part of GM’s North American operations. GMM selected Penske to be its lead logistics provider (LLP) to help drive efficiency throughout all aspects of its distribution network. Within the first six months of the partnership, transportation costs had already been significantly reduced. And, more improvements were underway, including the implementation of proprietary software to provide instant access to real-time updates from every supply chain participant.
