Network planning in the automotive industry enables modelling future potential networks to optimize the flow of vehicles in terms of time to market and cost per unit moved.
Running a number of 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.
