ICL Wins FCA US Logistics Contract

DETROIT (Detroit Free Press/TNS) —

ICL of Las Vegas has won a contract to manage the shipment of cars and trucks made by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles in North America to dealerships.

ICL, which has a small office with about eight employees outside Detroit, said it plans to add about 26 employees there to manage the contract.

The company’s work for FCA US, the company previously known as Chrysler, will begin on Aug. 1.

ICL said it will form a new company that will be focused on coordinating and overseeing the transportation of Chrysler, Jeep, Ram, Dodge, Fiat and Alfa Romeo vehicles. The company will oversee the shipment of cars by rail and by truck across North America.

“We are going to be managing all of the outbound supply chain — everything that occurs from the factory to dealers,” said Thomas Swennes, vice president of strategic planning and administration.

Founded in 1992, ICL provides logistics and supply-chain management for clients such as Itochu Automobiles America, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mitsubishi Motors, Nissan North America, Porsche, Toyota and Volkswagen.
