Production must never stop. That is probably the simplest way to sum up what is important when it comes to logistics for the automotive industry.
Regardless of where in the manufacturing chain your company is working, you need short lead times and reliable deliveries at an even rate. Times must be adhered to exactly, regardless of whether we are dealing with small parts or large, complete systems.
A high standard of delivery is vital. Anything else would create problems at the next stage. Problems that inevitably turn back on you and become your problems.
That is why DB Schenker is a good partner.
