CNH Global rejects CAT’s services
CNH Global rejects CAT’s services.
CAT Logistics is about to lose a customer it has served for fourteen years, when CNH assumes operating responsibility for its own parts depot operations next year.
CNH Global will assume operating responsibility for seven North American parts depot operations that are currently managed by its third-party logistics supplier, Caterpillar Logistics Services.
According to CNH president of parts & service, Ugo de Carolis, the decision is consistent with the company’s new brand-focused strategy, enabling a more hands-on approach which is key to building long-term relationships with customers.
The depots being in-sourced are located in Lebanon, Indiana; Greenville (Dallas), Texas; Doraville (Atlanta), Georgia; Mountville, Pennsylvania; Regina, Saskatchewan; Toronto, Ontario; and Carol Stream, Illinois.
The company already operates its own depots in San Leandro, California, and Cameron, Missouri.
CNH will work closely with Cat Logistics over the next several months to complete the transition process, and expects to assume full control of the depots during the first quarter of 2008.
Cat Logistics continues to operate the depot in Reno, Nevada.
