Part­ners Un­lim­ited

EME Outlook - - Ford Romania -

AtGEFCO, we al­ways cared about de­liv­er­ing the best so­lu­tions and ser­vices to our val­ued cus­tomers. Hav­ing this goal in mind, in the past two years, the Com­pany searched to re­de­fine it­self and to share with each and ev­ery one of its part­ners a new iden­tity based on GEFCO’S phi­los­o­phy and vi­sion: a trusted part­ner. Why are we dif­fer­ent to­day? Be­cause we cre­ated an in­no­va­tive new cul­ture called: “In­fi­nite Prox­im­ity”. We aim to build long- last­ing re­la­tion­ships through co­op­er­a­tion, to earn trust and to cre­ate more value in the sup­ply chain. This is how we be­came “Part­ners, un­lim­ited!”. “Part­ners” de­scribes the co­op­er­a­tive mind­set in which GEFCO builds re­la­tion­ships with its ecosys­tem based on prox­im­ity and shared growths and “un­lim­ited” means that we are con­tin­u­ally push­ing bound­aries in terms of ex­per­tise, ge­o­graph­i­cal scope, sus­tain­able growth, cre­ativ­ity and in­no­va­tion.

Our com­mon suc­cess story be­gun more than 15 years ago, when GEFCO started pro­vid­ing Ford in­bound and out­bound flows man­age­ment and after­mar­ket ser­vices cov­er­ing Europe, Rus­sia and South Amer­ica.

In 2012 started the col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween Ford Ro­ma­nia and GEFCO Ro­ma­nia with in­bound flows man­age­ment ser­vices and con­tin­ued in 2016 with fin­ished ve­hi­cles trans­port and dis­tri­bu­tion so­lu­tions. To best serve the cus­tomer’s needs, a lo­gis­tic ded­i­cated team was cre­ated in Craiova, in the prox­im­ity of Ford plant, to take fast ac­tions when needed and to con­tin­u­ously im­prove our per­for­mance.

Jérôme Chevro­let, Balkans Area Man­ager, Gen­eral Man­ager for Ro­ma­nia and Bul­garia: “GEFCO Ro­ma­nia is proud to be a trusted lo­gis­tics part­ner in the re­gion for Ford. All our teams are com­mit­ted to meet­ing our cus­tomers’ need for ef­fi­ciency and they con­stantly prove their ca­pa­bil­i­ties in sup­port­ing our cus­tomers as they grow, while work­ing with them to tackle their long-term growth and prof­itabil­ity chal­lenges.”

Last year Ford Ro­ma­nia reaf­firmed the trust in­vested in us by grant­ing GEFCO Ro­ma­nia new dis­tri­bu­tion flows for trans­port­ing the new Ecos­port model. We op­er­ate Ford fin­ished ve­hi­cles trans­ports by train to Western Euro­pean mar­kets such as Ger­many, Italy and Benelux.

This new project be­came a re­al­ity due to an in­no­va­tive so­lu­tion pro­vided by GEFCO Ro­ma­nia or­der­ing in France new tai­lor-made wag­ons to match the new Ecos­port model di­men­sions. The num­ber of cars loaded on the plat­form has been also op­ti­mised and the flows of the cus­tomer were adapted to its pro­duc­tion ca­pac­ity.

To­gether we are also com­mit­ted to sus­tain­ing the en­vi­ron­ment, by con­sid­er­ing mov­ing the freight, when it is pos­si­ble, by rail in­stead of truck, low­er­ing this way the green­house gas emis­sions. By re­duc­ing the num­ber of trucks, we will im­prove the traf­fic safety and re­duce the traf­fic con­ges­tions on the road.

To­gether we grow, we care, we share! We are Part­ners, un­lim­ited!
