Auto logistics faces complex challenges ahead

The automotive industry has been affected by the recession of 2009 and the recovery of 2010 as much as any sector outside finance. Yet the effect on logistics strategies within the industry has been surprisingly modest, even though the operations themselves have been hit hard by plunging volumes and plant closures. In the future, though, strategies will have to change. The evolving geography of markets, the production locations of vehicle manufacturers and, perhaps most important of all, the technology of motor cars, will result in fundamental shifts to logistics needs.

The internal dynamics of the supply side are also evolving. The corporate strategy of some big logistics companies has begun to develop and the position of the automotive sector in these strategies has changed. In the market for finished vehicles, former key players have collapsed. Some of the larger players in inbound have strengthened their position. Meanwhile other areas defined by mode - such as shipping or rail - remain quite distinct.

The automotive logistics sector is no doubt one of the most complex, due to the diverse range of supply chain strategies employed by the vehicle manufacturers; the unique distribution channels they employ; the vast range of geographies covered and the highly politicized nature of the industry.

Global Automotive Logistics 2011 provides an insight into the workings of the industry examining:

  • the production and logistics strategies of the vehicle manufacturers and component suppliers
  • the inbound, finished vehicles and aftermarket segments
  • the major logistics companies present in the market

It also provides market estimates and forecasts for the inbound, finished vehicles and aftermarket segments.
