Transport of automotive subassemblies directly onto the production line of a car assembly plant - a service we have been providing to the automotive industry for years. We are aware that your sector is marked by great dynamics and variety of orders. And we know that a haulier bears immense responsibility, too. Even the slightest delay may cause disruption to the client's production process.
If your client expects a delivery of your components to reach their production line at 20.00 hrs on a scheduled day, your logistics operator must do anything within their power to meet the deadline and avoid idle wait at all cost. Although sometimes a shipment needs to travel about 2000 km in weather conditions beyond our control, we know how to minimize risk and what priorities customers of the automotive industry have.
3 key elements indicated by automotive industry clients:
