Automotive manufacturer Subaru is benefiting from a major expansion of WW Solutions’ vehicle processing centre (VPC) in California.
The existing 65-acre Oxnard VPC has been extended by five acres, meaning it can now handle an additional 30,000+ vehicles every year.
The expansion has also seen the renovation of a 30,000 square foot building to create the new vehicle processing space and office area.
“We’re using a mobility tool to allow us to deliver high quality processes and real-time reporting on the operation’s key performance indicators,” explains Ted Boudalis, regional general manager, port operations and strategy, WW Solutions. “For Subaru, the Oxnard location helps it support its growing sales in the US, and provides a distribution point much closer to the southwestern market.”
The Oxnard VPC benefits from close transport links with a direct trucking corridor from Oxnard to Route 101, one of the major US highways. There’s also a direct rail service into the VPC – the Genesee & Wyoming short line connects the centre with the Union Pacific, the largest railroad in the US.
Subaru is one of WW Solutions’ key business partners, and works with WW Solutions at other US ports including Baltimore, Maryland and Brunswick, Georgia in addition to a plant facility in Layfatte, Indiana
“I’m very proud of the facility we’ve been able to develop in Oxnard and delighted to have Subaru as a customer here and at the Port of Hueneme,” says Ted. “We value our partnership and look forward to many years of continued success.”
