Things have to move fast in the automotive industry. That’s why Carglass prides itself on having more than 95 per cent of car replacement windscreens available from stock.
Each of the warehouses in Germany has 2,000 windscreens and components in stock. The setup means that replenishment can take place overnight using the five locations as cross-dock facilities. Same-day delivery for automotive customers can also be assured for orders made by 10:45 am.
DSV used the massive Krefeld facility as the pilot location, rolling out subsequently to the other locations around the country. As part of setting up the logistics facilities, DSV customised its warehouse software to Carglass’ requirements.
Implementation in Germany has gone incredibly well… it was undoubtedly among the smoothest in recent years.
