Ford Adds 38 New Parts to Collision Parts Truckload Program

Automaker states that program helps them compete against aftermarket parts and other parts specified by insurers.

Thirty-eight new parts were added to Ford Customer Service Division’s (FCSD) Collision Parts Truckload Program, with the list price reduction averaging 16 percent. Ford says the program plays a key role in helping collision repairers deliver "high-quality, cost-effective repairs" to their customers.

The 38 part additions include eight tail lamps, six mirrors, two
headlamps, four valances, four wheels, four grilles/GORs/GOPs, three
isolators, three fascias, two parking lamps, one radiator and one bumper
bracket.

The Truckload Program currently covers more than a dozen replacement part types, including bumper fascias, steel bumpers, bumper bars, exterior lighting, mirrors, car and truck radiators, wheels, header panels, grilles/GORs/GOPs, isolators/impact pads/shafts and valances.

Ford states that by offering Ford and Lincoln wholesaling dealers – the exclusive distributors of genuine Ford collision replacement parts – competitive prices on bulk purchases of high-volume collision parts, the Truckload Program allows them to compete more effectively against non-OEM copy parts and other parts specified by insurance customers.

“The truckload program started 2013 with great sales momentum, after completing a record 2012,” said George Gilbert, Truckload Program manager for FCSD. “We’re competitive with the aftermarket imitation parts, which means more vehicles can be repaired with the parts that were exclusively engineered for their specific vehicle’s make and model – just as the original part was.”
