Lightbulb Current Transit orders falling into mid-June dates as expected

Matt Ford just had 5 Transits pulled for scheduling and 4 of the 5 orders are falling into WEEK of June 10 for build dates. The one duplicated stock ordered unit went to WEEK of June 17th. We have 3 more stock ordered units that can be changed to a customer ordered one and possibly get dates close to these for next weeks allocation.

We would need to make these changes by April 16th so we will not run into the last minute changes and possibly end up with a duplicated order. You can email me at [email protected] if you have a Transit you want to order and get within these build dates.

We have 4 open slots for Transit orders this week that looks to be scheduled for mid-June build dates. We would need your order in the system by Wednesday to get it in the pull mode for the order to be accepted. We currently have stock ordered units filling those slots that can be pulled out for customer orders.

Contact [email protected] if you want to get your Transit order in this order group.

We had one R2X order pulled for scheduling this week and it moved one week from the last scheduling to WEEK of June 17th. With Ford sticking with building the HR models within this 2 week timeframe, it looks like they may follow what we have heard about the rental companies ordering replacement LR 15 passenger vans and those being built starting in July.

So.... if you are still thinking about placing a order for a MR or HR Transit, you might want to get your order in to get a late June date. The Transit assembly plant may use multiple weeks to build those LR Transit passenger vans and NO other body styles may be done during these production dates.

Delivery dates are coming out with June 22nd to June 30th based on the current Matt Ford orders with the 2 week period of June 10th to 17th for build dates.

Matt Ford has 3 opening for scheduled orders next week. This may be the last ones going with June build dates as well as any scheduling for the larger MR & HR models. Most of the rental companies will be replacing their current LR 15 passenger vans and this production run may take up 2 to 3 weeks of time for these builds.

2 more orders pulled this week and we are still getting June 17th build week for Transit builds. This may be a sign that the Transit orders are slowing down but also the fact that Ford is trying to get most of the HR Transit orders done before they make the long assembly run for the LR Transit passenger vans for the rental companies.

We have one LR 12 passenger van on order and this one still has not been scheduled. Hoping it will be showing a date soon and that may tell us the start of these LR passenger vans.

Ford converted all of the WEEK of dates to DAY of build dates with the range from 6/10 to 6/21. So looks like they are keeping the HR models in that build date range and it may stay that way for the next 2 week order periods. Will have 2 more open allocations for orders next week so will see what shows up on those orders.
