AUTOMOTIVE

Driving Supply Chain Efficiency

These are turbulent times for the automotive sector. Huge global growth, especially in emerging markets, coupled with increasing government regulations to meet emissions targets; rising consumer expectations for personalisation, and decreasing product cycle times are all adding up to a volatile environment.

In order to survive manufacturers must adapt and rethink their current supply chains. Production is moving closer to consumption, new players are entering the market to support an emerging era of vehicles that are becoming technology on wheels, and OEMs are investing heavily in mega-plants in emerging markets.
