Not necessarily. Dealers get allocations based on the volume they sell so the schedules are created by the assembly plants with dealer allocations as a variable.How’s that work exactly? Dealers that turn high numbers of trucks get em quicker?
This thread has some really great information. I pulled some of it for easy reading.
Ford provides Dealers with a schedule for vehicle allocation each week on Monday mornings which shows how many vehicles of each model line that the Dealer has allocation for scheduling that week. That same weekly allocation report also includes information on any regional commodity issues or restrictions. On Monday afternoons, the Scheduling Toolbox Report is released which provides more detailed information on commodity issues and scheduling availability on a national basis. On Tuesday mornings, the AM Scheduling Preview Report is available to show Dealers which vehicle orders have been selected or previewed, on an initial basis, to be selected for scheduling that week. The same report is updated and available on Wednesday morning to show any changes based on commodity issues that may have changed.
