Automotive Network Planning
Design and implement a resilient distribution network with increased delivery predictability, risk balancing and the identification of secondary routes; all while managing costs and reducing lead times.
Planning and designing a logistics network in the automotive industry is a complex challenge. The future potential network needs to optimize vehicle flow in terms of myriad aspects such as costs per unit, used locations, time to market, CO2 emission and many more.
The specific automotive network solution enables modeling an optimized network by counting all important aspects for each region.
Running several scenarios can only be done efficiently by using technology that is designed to understand the specific dynamics of the finished vehicle supply chain. This is important because vehicles are unique in logistics terms compared to most other forms of cargo. They need specialist transport, they are more prone to external damage, and they are too individual to be easily replaced by alternative units. Network planning software helps to overcome these challenges.
