While many manufacturers offer some form of logistics support, few of them match Decatur Mold’s abilities, and fewer still offer comprehensive foreign trade zone support.
Located in North Vernon, Indiana, centrally located between Indianapolis, Indiana, Cincinnati, Ohio, and Louisville, Kentucky, our facility is operational 24 hours a day, seven days a week, in four shifts — we run our business this way to ensure that all customer jobs are handled quickly and efficiently.
Working with Decatur Mold allows benefits without being burdened with the paperwork. As a Foreign Trade Zone, we are a holding tank for foreign items until it’s entered into the U.S. Commerce. We have a Customs Broker on staff allowing us to work directly with the shippers and completing all necessary paperwork, saving time without utilizing additional resources. We track each shipment from door to door ensuring our customer needs are being met. The shippers we work with understand the time sensitivity of our products and work well to be sure our timelines are met.
For delivery of finished products, and pickup of molds incoming for repair or engineering change notification (ECN) alterations, we operate our own fleet of Kenworth trucks, one of few manufacturers in any industry to do so. Our fleet includes:
- 1 – 2006 International Tractor 36 / Trailer 16 Haul Weight 44,000#
- 1 – 2014 Kenworth Tractor 49 / Trailer 55 Haul Weight 49,000#
- 1 – 2016 Peterbilt Tractor 58/ Trailer 57 Haul Weight 50,500#
- 1 – 2014 Kenworth Tractor 48 / Trailer 53 Haul Weight 41,000#
- 1 – 2012 Kenworth Straight Truck 45 Haul Weight 24,000#
- 2 – 2014 Kenworth T270 #50 and #52 Haul Weight 11,500#
Aside from our expansive delivery services, we maintain a staff of planning and logistics experts — they work seamlessly with all of our manufacturing departments to help keep processes moving smoothly. The staff includes full time, fully licensed customers brokers to help navigate the often confusing foreign trade zone regulations, almost unheard of in the industry.
Decatur Mold has been dedicated to going above and beyond in the name of providing outstanding customer service since 1966, and we will continue to do so for years to come. To learn more about the logistics and foreign trade support services we provide for you at Decatur Mold, contact us today.
