A leading automaker’s complex supply chain needed re-engineering to improve visibility to global manufacturing and assembly plants, keep parts flowing reliably, and achieve faster door-to-door transit times for shipments. Agility began by installing a control tower in Turin, Italy, to serve as the account’s clearinghouse. An IT solution for tracking every container, shipment and part number enabled headquarters to re-invoice supply costs to its plants.
Plus, Agility established procedures for checking shipment documentation to ensure compliance; this prevented shipping obstacles and related delays in exporting and receiving. The customer continues to rely on Agility to manage the flow of parts from Asia to plants in Europe and Latin America.
