SUBARU OF AMERICA NAMES EMERY WORLDWIDE PRIMARY CARRIER FOR 100-POUNDS AND OVER SHIPMENTS

 SUBARU OF AMERICA NAMES EMERY WORLDWIDE
 PRIMARY CARRIER FOR 100-POUNDS AND OVER SHIPMENTS
 PALO ALTO, Calif., May 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Subaru of America has designated Emery Worldwide as primary carrier for shipments 100 pounds and over between the automobile manufacturer's distribution centers and its 750 dealers nationwide.
 According to Tom Leimkuhler, national traffic manager - parts, distribution and logistics for the Cherry Hill, N.J., based company, Emery was given the primary carrier status because of its competitive rates, excellent service and its renewed commitment to heavier air cargo service.
 Leimkuhler said Subaru had been using a small-shipment express service until 1991 as its primary air carrier because 95 percent of the parts and equipment they shipped were less than 100 pounds.
 "We store thousands of small, lightweight fast-moving parts such as spark plugs, brake pads and fan belts at our regional distribution centers for quick release to dealers. Bulkier parts and odd-sized components are stored at our primary distribution center in Irvine."
 However, mainly because of the need to provide more comprehensive service to its dealership network, Subaru soon found itself using air freight for more heavyweight pieces such as transmissions and larger engine components.
 According to Leimkuhler, the changing dynamics of Subaru's air shipping needs cause dramatic increases in its monthly transportation costs.
 "I had to look into alternate choices because our current carrier was primarily an envelope and small package carrier whose rates were not advantageous at the 100 pounds and over mark. The costs were just getting out of hand."
 Leimkuhler said he had gained respect for Emery "when they stopped trying to be a carrier who was everything to everybody" and redirected itself to focus on the parcel, package and heavy freight shipment market.
 "Emery went back to its strength -- moving freight! They offered us highly competitive rates so we gave them a 60-day trial, which was successful," he commented.
 "They are operating at a 95 percent or better on-time service level," Leimkuhler said. "In addition, we've been able to capture significant savings and much better value for our air freight dollar since Emery took over Subaru's air freight traffic."
 Emery Worldwide is a $1.3 billion air freight company with 245 terminals and service locations in North America and 88 countries. Emery provides professional transportation service for expedited traffic and logistics needs of retailing, manufacturing and industrial customers. The Emery network accepts any size commercial air cargo shipment.
