Motor vehicle logistics

The inbound logistics cost of a finished motor vehicle can be as much as 10% of the total cost of the vehicle. As a comparison, the actual assembly costs of a vehicle are only 5%. In addition, build-to-order concepts, increased model mixes and reduced inventory have increased the complexity of automotive supply chains. This underpins the automotive original equipment manufacturers’ (OEMs) focus on continuous efficiency and control improvements in their supply chains, while at the same time striving to reduce costs and improve product quality.

 

Our automotive solutions cover the entire supply chain of order management, supplier management and the physical delivery processes around the globe.

 

OEM and automotive suppliers’ supply chains

We help you stay in control of your supply chain by continuously improving your process efficiencies.

From procurement to assembly line

 

We help synchronise your end-to-end supply chain with our automotive solutions, from procurement, order management and supplier management through to the physical distribution between countries and continents.

 

Improved focus on the assembly process

 

Our specialised inbound consolidation and sequencing centres located close to your manufacturing plant offer you just-in-time (JIT) and/or just-in-sequence (JIS) supplies.

 

You need flexibility in production because of increasingly stringent emission standards requiring reduced carbon emissions and a highly fluctuating demand for product. Outsourcing the inbound process is an effective way of improving responsiveness and utilising our inbound consolidation centres leaves you free to concentrate on the assembly process.

 

Aftermarket – supplying the spare parts

Keeping vehicles on the road requires efficient logistics for spare parts. We design and optimise supply chains to deliver parts to dealers, using sophisticated inventory management to keep you in control and give end-to-end visibility.

Our distribution experts ensure that agreed service levels are maintained and performance tracked, leaving you free to manage your dealer relationships. Furthermore, agile distribution methods simplify processes and reduce errors, and we can also manage eligible returns.

Maintain control of your supply chain

 

We offer you solutions that cover the entire supply chain, from order management through supplier management right up to after-sales service logistics. With our inbound, sequencing and assembly services we support your manufacturing processes all the way through to final physical delivery.

 

System suppliers

We provide a series of logistics services tailored specifically for you, from multi-user sequencing centres in close proximity to your customers' assembly plants to in-house warehousing solutions for management of your internal and external product flows.

 

Our facilities are compliant with relevant total quality management systems, and we offer seamless integration with your IT systems based on your individual needs.

 

Warehousing

We offer you logistics solutions that cover the entire supply chain, from pick-up at supplier to line feed at the assembly plant.

 

Flexible solutions

 

As a system and component supplier, you can concentrate on your primary activities while we handle your warehousing, whether you have chosen regional consolidation centres, in-house warehousing or a different solution.

 

Furthermore, we provide specialised warehousing solutions for motorcycles and related merchandise.

 

We can also handle customs clearance and offer bonded warehousing services.

 

Freight management

We can take care of the planning, execution and administration of all your transport operations. Our freight management includes order management, shipment planning, execution and monitoring, billing and performance reporting.

 

Our Track and Trace software enables you to follow each shipment from pick-up to final delivery.

 

With our cross-docking services you will benefit from short-term storage and consolidation of shipments and thus fast and efficient freight solutions. We also handle return logistics based on return authorisations and returns management of rejected or defective goods as well as your commercial returns.

 

Value-added services

Our value-added services include repacking, configurations, kitting, lite assembly (including ready-to-fit assemblies), testing, repair services or more. This is usually combined with JIT or JIS delivery.
