Manheim Logistics Solutions has announced its move to an upgraded office facility in Phoenix, according to an October press release.
The move, intended to better serve the area’s growing mobility sector, is backed by a $2.7 million investment. It will combine Manheim Logistics’ Ready Logistics and Central Dispatch operations into the top two floors — 51,000 square feet — of the Sky Harbor Towers building.
Ready Logistics and Central Dispatch combined to transport nearly 10 million vehicles last year.
“As Cox Automotive transforms the way the world buys, sells, owns and uses cars, Manheim Logistics is working to make transportation an inherent part of the automotive transaction rather than a separate one,” said Jim Williams, senior vice president of logistics for Cox Automotive Inventory Solutions, Manheim’s parent company.
Ready Logistics, a full-service option, leverages a network of more than 6,500 carriers to move vehicles. Central Dispatch, a self-service option, offers a centralized communications platform to connect shippers and carriers.
Manheim is headquartered in Atlanta, with its upgraded logistics office based in Phoenix.
“The move to an expanded facility supports our transition from offering full- and self-service options to being a provider that delivers seamless, combined solutions that meet clients’ diverse needs and drive value,” Williams said.
