Automotive Industry Experience
Our team has experience with a wide variety of Automotive supplier clients. We have stored and distributed the following products:
· Brake drums
· Brake rotars
· Brake pads
· Vinyl seat covering
· Filtration units
· Stepper & Servo motors
· Windshield wipers
· Oils & Lubricants
We have partnered with automotive supplier clients both big and small. We successfully implemented a 240,000 square foot dedicated auto parts distribution center from initial concept to full operation. We have worked with suppliers who shipped directly to assembly lines. We have operated daily truck routes running between our warehouses, the client, and the end user. We have even stored finished vehicles.
Commonwealth has warehouses in Cincinnati and Kansas City strategically located near major automotive production facilities and automotive suppliers. Over 80% of the light vehicle production in the United States is located within 600 miles of Cincinnati making it an excellent centralized hub for logistics support operations. This close proximity helps clients significantly reduces transportation costs and transit time. Same-day delivery is available at all of our locations 24/7/365. Below is a short list of nearby automotive production facilities:
· Ford Sharonville Plant, Sharonville OH (3 miles)
· GM Fairfax Plant, Kansas City KS (16 miles)
· Ford Claycomo Plant, Kansas City MO (19 miles)
· Honda Plant, Greensburg IN (63 miles)
· Toyota Motor Plant, Georgetown KY (73 miles)
· Honda Plant, Marysville OH (104 miles)
Additionally, our warehouses are located near large intermodal facilities. We are less than 10 miles away in Cincnnati and between 12-30 miles in Kansas City. Being located near the yard reduces drayage costs and allows for quick container turning. Many steamship lines allow containers to be dropped versus live-unloaded due to our facilities being so close. Commonwealth can help clients avoid demurrage charges and lower their overall freight forwarding rates due to this faster turnaround.
We provide 24/7/365 emergency coverage to time-critical clients. We understand how costly a production line shutdown would be for your business. We guarantee availability and delivery capability after hours, on weekends, and even holidays for a simple flat fee. You can rely on us to have you covered in the event of an emergency.
