Re-engineering auto industry processes improves inventory accuracy to 99.8%
A reliable logistics partner can give an automotive company a competitive edge through enhanced warehouse and inventory management. This was the case for a major auto manufacturer in Dubai who was expanding its business in the Middle East and Africa. Agility supported the company’s plan for a new regional parts distribution center by establishing a warehouse in the Jebel Ali Free Zone and implementing customized logistics solutions to improve operations and support to dealers. One critical process change that Agility re-engineered was setting up a cross-dock area, which resulted in a 43 percent reduction in airfreight shipments and back-order processing time. Other significant improvements that Agility enabled include an inventory accuracy of 99.8 percent and major reductions in pick-and-pack and put-away processing time.
