Car transport to Ohio

Our company is one of the largest and most reputable vehicle shippers in Ohio. Like many other high-profile firms in car transport, we are pleased to see a shift into smaller and lighter vehicles throughout the United States. Even the parts that are being used to build vehicles are becoming smaller and more efficient. This means that when our company and others like ours crisscross the country in our trucks to transport vehicles nationwide, we need less fuel for the journey.

Because we share the same concerns that many people do about environmental efficiency and reducing impact on pollution and waste, we were thrilled to read a recent article by Tom Krisher of the Detroit Free Press. The news piece outlines new developments at the Ford factory in Brook Park, outside of Cleveland. For several years, Ford has been manufacturing a four-cylinder engine in Spain – assumedly due to its popularity in the European market. That project is now moving to Cleveland due to increases in four-cylinder American sales.

Cutting-Edge Lightweight Parts

Autoworkers in the United States are surely pleased to see an outsourced production line making its way back to the Midwest. We are pleased to see its return as well, because it means easier access and potentially lower costs for buyers. To our industry, that means lighter vehicles, greater fuel-efficiency, and lower quotes – which of course will never come at the expense of the stellar customer support mentioned in reviews of our services.

Ford is investing $200 million in production at the Ohio factory. The engine it will produce there is called the EcoBoost. Over 400 new American jobs will result from the re-domestication of this particular assembly line. The labor force at the Brook Park plant is growing 35% to 1750 employees to accommodate the additional workload.

Changing US Market & Code Spurs Move

Part of the reason Ford is moving its four-cylinder operation within American borders is because fuel efficiency standards are becoming more stringent each year. Ford, in other words, is looking toward the future because it must: in 12 years, all new cars will be required to meet fuel efficiency standards of 54.5 mpg.

Additionally, car owners can no longer afford the gasoline requirements of six-cylinder vehicles as fossil fuel prices continue to trend skyward. That’s why sales of cars with four-cylinder engines rose to over 50% of all vehicle sales in 2012. Though the engines are smaller and generally require less gasoline, they are turbocharged. What this means is that though standard operation makes fuel efficiency spectacular, additional power is available to drivers as needed.
