Our automotive logistics solutions

Car logistics

Build-to-order, increased model mixes and reduced inventory are just some of your needs that drive automotive supply chain complexity. Our synchronised personal car logistics solutions, from the supplier base to the assembly line, deliver efficiency, control, and reduced costs while improving quality.

Commercial, construction and agricultural vehicles

Fluctuating demand, volatile fuel costs and reducing carbon emissions are among the factors shaping this market. Our in-bound to manufacturing services collect your supplier parts through "milk runs" or FTL by using our dedicated trailer fleet. And we optimise the parts flow and support assembly plants in our consolidation centres by supplying JIS and/or JIT.

Motorcycle and recreational vehicles

You need specialised delivery equipment in this cost-sensitive consumer category, and the most efficient route to market for your merchandise, garments and service parts. Our warehousing and distribution solutions strengthen your customers' value chains, and support your manufacturing processes from inbound-to-manufacturing, sequencing and assembly services, right through to handling your after-sales service logistics operations.

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.

Across the supply chain 

Can your automotive logistics solutions help me reduce lead times, floor space and inventory levels - and also improve quality?

Our production logistics processes will make sure the right components are delivered to the right assembly lines on time, in the proper build sequence, at the right quality - and at the lowest possible cost. Our customised IT system guides the supply chain processes, providing excellent parts planning and traceability, and parts in DSV in-house designed sequence racks.

Our flagship automotive operation supplies more than 200,000 parts a day in sequence at less than 35 PPM.

How can your automotive logistics solutions help our suppliers meet our manufacturing requirements?

As a leading auto logistics provider, we offer services ranging from in-house warehousing and managing internal and external product flows, to multi-user sequence centres close to your suppliers' assembly plants. These automotive supply chain facilities are compliant with total quality management systems such as ISO 9001 and TS 16949. Our IT systems offer real time online access, full track and traceability and seamless integration into your systems.  

75% of any vehicle is produced by OEM suppliers, who also account for 50% of auto sector R&D spend.

Can you get service parts to my customers on time?

More than that - our warehousing and distribution services ensure your dealers will get same-day or next-morning delivery, which provides a sound basis for your customer retention programme. We provide full supply chain visibility into inventory levels, delivery status and KPIs, and manage parts and merchandise in either dedicated or multi-user warehouses or through cross docking concepts.

Service parts account for only 15% of OEM revenues, but contribute more than 50% of profit.
