A provider to the North American automotive aftermarket, Fenwick Automotive Products (Fenco), chose Transplace as its third-party logistics (3PL) provider to efficiently manage shipments throughout North America, and to manage its overseas shipments from Asia. Fenco will use Transplace's Transportation Management System (TMS) to enhance shipment visibility, reduce transportation costs and improve overall operational efficiencies, Transplace said.

Ray Boland, head of operations at Fenco , said he liked the Transplace TMS solution because "the level of real-time visibility and the fact that the technology delivery model was software-as-a-service. This enabled us to further develop our commitment to on-time order fill and allowed us to deploy the solution quickly without disrupting our operations." He also cited a high level of professional management and transportation expertise as advantages.

Transplace is managing Fenco's transportation planning and execution in the U.S. and Mexico, as well as imports from Asia.

"We're providing Fenco with a global solution that addresses and manages their day-to-day transportation requirements - focused on exceeding their customers' expectations," said Matthew Menner, senior vice president, sales and alliances for Transplace. "Having increased visibility and access to granular shipment data - both domestic and international - helps Fenco to better monitor their service levels, allowing for immediate corrective action and continuous improvement, which is critical in their industry."

Fenco was also seeking a 3PL provider with strong expertise in transportation management services and U.S.-Mexico customs brokerage capabilities. Because auto parts are shipped between Mexico and the U.S. - incremental costs can quickly become significant. Transportation management software provides greater visibility.

Based in Toronto, Fenco has been in business since 1949 and offers more than 20 distinct product lines of both remanufactured and new products, with production facilities and distribution centers in Canada, USA and Mexico. Transplace is based in Dallas, TX.
