Who will survive the market crisis?

GEFCO Finances: Revenue from PSA
Peugeot Citroen

The automotive industry is facing its worst crisis in living history. Sales of vehicles have slumped in most markets and many Vehicle Manufacturers around the world are facing bankruptcy or bail out by governments.

The consequences for the logistics industry are severe. With so much of the logistics sector’s revenues linked to the fortunes of the auto industry it is unsurprising that many companies face an uncertain future. Closure or mothballing of major plants results in shock waves throughout the supply chain.

Within this market environment, understanding the strategies of the Vehicle Manufacturers, Component Suppliers and Logistics Service Providers—whether contract, rail or road—is fundamental to survival and success.

The unique set of circumstances which the industry finds itself in, means that companies need not only long term, strategic information on the production and supply chain management strategies which the major players in the market have adopted, but also information on the impact which crisis-driven management decisions are having right across the logistics industry.
