Today, we want to feature a case study of one of our automotive customer’s supply chain. We know that despite the global economic situation, whether it is a sequester in the US or under-utilized capacity in Europe, the automotive supply chain continues to rapidly evolve driven by fundamental changes in operating models, product platforms and operating models. Increasingly, these automotive/transport companies are turning to third party operators at all levels of the supply chain to reduce costs, satisfy local demand, and enhance capacity flexibility. We want to share the success of one global 500 automotive company and how they are facing these challenges head on and seeing breakthroughs in operations performance.
“RapidResponse has significantly reduced our inventory levels; the program has also greatly improved our delivery time and material consumption.”
