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.
