C4 Logistics, atime critical logistics provider, reached an agreement with automotive parts supplier Cooper Standard for expedited services across Europe. Operations started in July and will cover 22 production facilities that Cooper Standard has in Europe, including sites in Germany, the Czech Republic, Spain, Italy, Poland, France, Serbia and Romania.
C4 will intervene if the inbound flow to Cooper Standard’s plants is interrupted, but also if the outbound flow from the automotive parts supplier to its OEM customers if disrupted. Cooper Standard provides rubber and plastic sealing, fuel and brake lines, fluid transfer hoses and anti-vibration systems.
“C4 Logistics will ensure that Cooper Standard gets the parts it needs from its suppliers at the right time and act to ensure Cooper Standard’s parts get to the right place at the right time, with total transparency about where the parts are at all times,” said Sébastien Barth, C4 Logistics’ managing director.
Cooper Standard expanded operations to Europe from its US base in 2013.
