Reliable door-to-door flow of parts from Asia to Europe keeps automaker in production

A leading vehicle maker need better visibility into dozens of manufacturing and assembly plants worldwide; a reliable flow of parts from China, India and other Asian nations; and faster door-to-door transit times to reduce shipment delays. Agility was appointed to manage the company’s logistics. The first step was to install a control center in Turin. Next, procedures were implemented to track every single container, shipment and part number door-to-door. Our plan included customized track and trace EDI solutions, and buyer consolidation and container optimization. Agility also made emergency plans to ensure nothing could bring business to a halt. Today, the customer relies on Agility to manage parts from China, India, Thailand, South Korea, Japan and Vietnam to multiple plants across Europe and Latin America.
