Ford has approved a ship-thru program for Leggett & Platt CVP’s facility in Kansas City (Order code: 31U D9K). The ship-thru service allows CVP customers to order Ford vehicles direct into CVP’s facility for upfitting and then re-enter the vehicles into Ford’s transportation system for final delivery. CVP’s facility is located five miles from the Ford Kansas City Assembly Plant, which enables CVP customers to take advantage of low transportation and upfit costs.

“Our fleet customers are very excited about the new Ford Transit and have begun placing orders for ship-thru at our new Kansas City facility, which will be ready and open for business shortly,” stated John Forest, Vice President of Install Operations for Leggett & Platt CVP.

The new Leggett & Platt CVP location will be open in March and is located at 8250 N.E. Underground Drive, Kansas City, Missouri 64161.
