Automotive

For years now, we have been reliably partnering automobile manufacturers and the companies that supply them with modules and systems. We develop and implement comprehensive logistics concepts in the automotive sector. The services we provide for our customers range from procurement logistics to the realization of outsourcing projects, and the provision of logistical support in connection with CBU transports (including distribution to dealerships all over Saudi Arabia).

We execute just-in-time transports with our own and partners fleet of transport vehicles and offer a host of warehousing and administrative services (e.g. maintaining stocks of manufactured parts, execution of preassembly operations, planning and optimization of packaging procedures, order-picking, and the drawing up of transport documents and delivery notes).

We see it as our task to provide transport links on which supply companies, the manufacturers’ production plants, and vehicle dealers can all rely. In order to perform this function with maximum efficiency, we have created our own unique transport network. This network enables us to bundle our collection activities by picking up goods from all the suppliers we work within so-called milk runs. The system is inherently flexible and allows us to consult the suppliers who use our services about collection times and the quantities of materials to be transported. Our customers in the automotive sector benefit from this arrangement in a number of ways: our network guarantees them fixed and readily calculable lead times, and thus the availability of production materials as and when required. This, in turn, reduces their production costs.
