ECO Vehicle Systems announces ship-thru program for General Motors OH and MO plants


ECO Vehicle Systems (Union City, Indiana) announced a new ship-thru program for General Motors Wentzville, Missouri, and Springfield, Ohio, plants.

These ship-thru programs allow fleets to order Chevrolet Express 4500 and GMC Savanah 4500 cut away chassis as well as Chevrolet Express and GMC Savanah 1500, 2500 and 3500 vans and have them shipped directly from the manufacturing plant to ECO Vehicle Systems in Union City, Indiana, for upfitting, body installation and other modifications, including interior packages, ladder racks and alternative fuel systems installation (CNG or LPG).

Once the upfitting, body installations for other modifications are complete, the vehicles are returned to the General Motors transportation system and quickly shipped to the dealer or fleet location specified with only a minimal handling changed from GM.  This enables the upfitting and modification process to happen with minimum time and transportation delays and at lower costs.

The ECO Vehicle Systems ship-thru code for the Wentzville, Missouri, GM Plant is “A6H” and the ECO Vehicle Systems ship-thru code for the Springfield, Ohio, plant is “TBK”.

Rob Lykins, founder and president, ECO Vehicle Systems, said, “We have distributor agreements with many major body manufacturers offering all types of body designs including dump bodies, flat and stake bed bodies, van bodies, utility bodies in a variety of materials including aluminum, steel, fiberglass and composite and we can provide a wide variety of interior packages custom designed for the fleet’s needs.  We are also a state of the art alternative fuels conversion facility, providing dedicated and Bi-fuel CNG and LPG systems as well as battery electric and hybrid electric and hydraulic hybrid systems.  We are truly a One-Stop-Shop that can provide fleets very high quality vehicle modifications to take the base GM vehicle and customize it for all of their fleet’s needs.”
