Throughout the automotive industry we are seeing volatility and rapid change, as sourcing patterns across Europe and the lower-cost countries continue to shift, new markets open up and new technologies emerge. There has never been a greater need for predictability in the supply chain, adherence to process and consistency in flows.
Through our experience in providing inbound and internal logistics solutions to automotive manufacturers, Yusen Logistics has in-depth understanding of the lean manufacturing environment and the challenges throughout the automotive supply chain. We offer a full range of logistics capabilities in support of OEMs and tiered automotive suppliers. Our services range from the management and fulfilment of inbound logistics services, off-site warehouse operations including sub assembly, kitting, sequencing and on-site logistics through to the planning for a new model launch or support for a company’s emerging market strategy.
We have invested heavily in developing specialist global resources and expertise across the modes of air, road and sea to successfully manage international supply chains which have increased in complexity and length, ensuring your parts and materials get to the correct place at the correct time.
At all times we remain focused on reducing your costs and removing inefficiencies from your supply chain processes in line with the commitment to continuous improvement and Kaizen which form a fundamental part of our business philosophy.
Our dedicated team will work closely with you to build a solution that is both operationally and commercially advantageous to you. We work through the diagnostic process, modelling the complex “what ifs” needed to create an optimum solution – where to source, where and how much inventory to hold, frequency of collection and delivery and packaging within the system. We understand the implications of different scenarios in terms of vendors’ ability to manufacture, the cost of inventory versus supply chain and the cost of packaging – returnable and non-returnable.
