AMPORTS signs agreement with Toyota Logistics Services Inc. to process imported vehicles from Japan at AMPORTS' Benicia, California facility.
The initial contract is for five years, with two five-year options for renewal. Toyota estimates that approximately 65,000 vehicles will be shipped through Benicia during the first year of the service, with the figure rising to 100,000 or more units in the following years. Work is underway on preparing the facilities to accommodate the increased volumes and variety of models of Toyotas that will start to arrive in mid January 2006.
AMPORTS Benicia and Baltimore have a long-standing relationship with Toyota, Baltimore currently handles Toyota exports to the Middle East and Germany, and Benicia handles exports to Hawaii.
Chief Executive Officer James Davis explained, “As one of the world’s leading automotive manufacturers, Toyota is renowned for its precision and stringent quality standards. Appointing AMPORTS to undertake its vehicle processing is a great testament to the skill and experience of the workforce. It is a great badge of honour for the company, and says a lot about our reputation in the port processing market place.”
"We look forward to working with the Port of Benicia," said Alan DeCarr, Group Vice President for TLS and international operations. "The new arrangement enables us to continue to efficiently support our vehicle distribution demands."
