The automotive supply chain is one of the most complex manufacturing environments in the world. Specialized parts come from multiple suppliers to factories in multiple locations, often in different countries. The industry relies on cross docks and a massive network of numerous carriers. OEMs and suppliers can benefit from a unified system that relies on massive collaboration.
Automotive OEMs and Suppliers Struggle with:
Moving and tracking parts from suppliers to OEM manufacturing facilities
Understanding deviations to plan, and end-to-end visibility
Expected quantities (forecasting)
Product quality, due to use of non-standard packaging and several other factors
Security against fraudulent and counterfeit parts
Inability to share data throughout the supply chain
Incomplete and inaccurate data
Tracking and moving finished vehicles to third party logistics providers and ultimately to the dealership
Cross dock tracking/management
Allocation, availability, and distribution of returnable containers
Until now, the problem has been difficult to solve. It requires a community willing to work together, to speak in the same data language, and for that data to be reliably accurate and actionable.
Surgere has solved the problem with AutoSphere™, the automotive industry’s most effective, tested, scalable, and flexible supply chain management process. We have the clients and the ROI to prove it.
