Regulations around the world are changing, and vehicles with electric and alternative fuel powertrains are becoming more common. 

The vehicle ownership model is changing too, and future mobility concepts like micromobility, autonomous vehicles, and passenger car fleet sharing are entering the market. These vehicles, technologies and changes require a new approach to the automotive supply chain. Our EMC2 Center is ready to support you with this transition, whether you are establishing a new EV supply chain or balancing the transition away from internal combustion engines while growing your EV footprint.

Why are logistics for electric vehicles so different?

The traditional automotive supply chain is linear: Components and raw material moves from supplier to supplier, before becoming parts that are assembled into vehicles or distributed for aftersales. With electric vehicles, there is increased incentive to have a circular supply chain where components, especially parts of battery cells and packs, are repurposed and recycled to be fed back into the raw materials at the beginning. At EMC2 we are ready to help you reshape your supply chain.
