We support every aspect of your automotive supply chain, from inbound and production logistics to outbound, aftermarket and reverse logistics. Our Automotive Competence Center has created best practices and supply chain concepts for the needs of OEMs, tier 1 and tier 2 component suppliers and aftermarket customers.

The automotive industry is faced with a range of challenges: from growing complexity and cost pressure to changing regional production patterns and a shifting industry landscape. Our dedicated automotive and project management teams create customized solutions, tailored to your supply chain. Based on our fully integrated IT systems and quality management standards, we support the continuous optimization of your processes. An emergency contact is there for you around the clock to support your time-critical requests, and our On-Board Couriers are available on demand for global delivery services.

Our professional teams plan all processes well in advance, knowing that diligent preparation is vital to avoid delays and comply with the tightest of time-frames for pick-up and delivery. This includes the preparation of all necessary transport documents, pre-booking of volumes with airlines, pre-planning with trucking companies, and close contact with all involved suppliers and carriers to be able to react quickly to changes and fluctuations. Process quality is ensured by our internal operating procedures detailing all relevant handling instructions and time frames. Thanks to automated discrepancy reports, all parties get the information they need to find quick solutions.
