Ship Through and Drop Ship Codes

Moving vehicles seamlessly across the supply chain

The vehicle acquisition supply chain can get complicated when you’re talking about moving vehicles between a manufacturer, an upfitter, and their final destination. Auto Truck Group has ship-through and drop-ship capabilities with most manufacturers to ensure you get your vehicles as quickly and effectively as possible.

Ship Through

Ship through is a service that uses the OEMs’ transportation network to move vehicles between the manufacturing plant, our facilities, and then back into the transportation system. Auto Truck has ship-through capabilities with FCA, General Motors, Ford, Mercedes Benz, and Toyota.


**All Ship-Thru codes have been set-up for ALL family lines with the exception of ProMaster (VF)** ProMaster vehicles upfit in the US need to be ordered as Ship-To

Drop Ship

Drop ship is a service where chassis is ordered directly from the manufacturer and delivered to one of our facilities. Once the vehicle is completed, it is delivered directly to you or to a dealer for delivery. This method is great for situations when a completed vehicle cannot physically fit on ship-through carriers.

Auto Truck has 10 drop-ship locations across the United States.
