Bartlett, IL - May 17, 2012 - Auto Truck Group has been awarded ship through status for several Chrysler vehicles at its Auto Truck-Chicago location. The facility is located at 1420 Brewster Creek Blvd, Bartlett, IL 60103. The Charger Pursuit, Durango Special Service, and Ram Special Service Trucks will be added to the roster of available ship through models.
When fleets order new Chrysler units and use Auto Truck Group’s ship through code, the vehicles are sent from the factory directly to Auto Truck Group’s facility for upfitting. These vehicles are ideal for police, border and security applications. Auto Truck Group installs upfits that might include partitions, camera systems, weapon storage systems, gun locks, sirens, seating, consoles and decals. Once the upfitting is complete, the vehicles are returned to the factory to be entered into Chrysler’s transportation system, then sent to the end destination.
“The vehicles arrive at the customer ‘job ready’,” says Lou Selvaggio, of Auto Truck Group’s Safety Equipment Sales Department. “Additionally, the fleet manager is able to control equipment installation schedules by prioritizing production schedules. This helps to accommodate specific field requirements.”
Ship through is primarily used by companies who have large fleets of vehicles, or whose fleet is spread out over a large area, or both. Auto Truck Group’s ship through code for the new Chrysler vehicles is T9559.
“Quality, consistency and cost-effective delivery are the main advantages for a fleet to use ship through,” says Dennis Jones, VP Sales and Marketing. “We are looking forward to offering this service to our customers."
Auto Truck Group also has ship through services with other major truck manufacturers.
