AUTOMOTIVE

The Automotive sector is the largest vertical with respect to expedited transportation within North America.  In fact, national expedited transportation was founded and has grown as the automotive OEM's reduced inventories and pursued JIT initiatives in "leaning-out" their supply chains.                                                

Because late deliveries can result in expensive lost time in plant shutdowns, or expensive "run withouts", quality providers with technological prowess are the motor carriers of choice when assembly lines are hanging in the balance.  ASE is daily supporting OEM's and Tier suppliers throughout the NAFTA region to ensure the heartbeat of North American manufacturing never stops.
