Eaton Corporation, a highly diversified industrial manufacturer, has named Penske Logistics as its lead logistics provider in Europe. Penske will provide transportation management services, including management and procurement of transportation, followed by a comprehensive supply chain redesign program for Eaton's European manufacturing operations in 13 countries.
"This program with Penske will be one of our key strategic projects for 2006 as we develop our footprint in Europe. The first step will be for Penske to implement its transportation management system and the day-to-day handling of Eaton's inbound and outbound flows," says Mario Hegewald, Eaton's global logistics director. "Penske will optimize and redesign the transport network by combining shipments with other Penske customers."
Eaton is a global leader in electrical systems and components for power quality, distribution and control; fluid power systems and services for industrial, mobile and aircraft equipment; intelligent truck drivetrain systems for safety and fuel economy; and automotive engine air management systems, powertrain solutions and specialty controls for performance, fuel economy and safety.
