Port Officials and Global Auto Processing Services (GAPS) executed a fifth modification of its 2007 contract extending their agreement for an additional five years through January 31, 2019. The Port welcomed GAPS for the first time in March 2007.

Harbor Board President Mary Anne Rooney said, “GAPS Vehicle Distribution Center is a vital community partner and a significant economic engine, employing up to 85 workers most of whom live in Oxnard and Port Hueneme and further employs no less than 40 temporaries, with an overall estimated payroll of roughly $4.4 million a year.”

GAPS’s Executive Vice President Michael Wynn-Song said, “As a part of the Oxnard community, GAPS and our employees are excited to continue the growth of our partnership which began in 1997 as P&Y Enterprises and has seen over a million vehicles pass through this facility.”

Port CEO and Executive Director Kristin Decas noted at the announcement, “In addition to GM and U.S. manufactured Honda exports, GAPS partners with logistics provider Glovis USA, (the logistical arm of Hyundai/Kia), to handle the Hyundai and Kia family of Korean manufactured automobiles. We greatly value this partnership and look forward to many more years as partners”.
