Automotive


The automotive sector is under pressure, since the transition from an internal combustion engine to electrical driving is imminent. At the moment, the electric cars are equipped with batteries, but fuel cells that run on hydrogen are a strong alternative. With that, there is plenty of uncertainty about the exact direction and the pace of the transition. At the same time, it is still 'business as usual': the automotive sector is producing large numbers of vehicles in more and more variants. Logistics is a major challenge, for which a closely aligned supplier network has to supply the highest quality at the latest price just-in-time.

The technical value-add distributor plays an important role in this field of tension, by keeping a close eye on the small and larger innovations that present themselves. And he also takes part in the direct supply to car manufacturers and suppliers in the first, second or third line. Smart logistics systems have been set up for this. For large volume parts that are still widespread in the automotive industry, he can even have parts made to customer specifications if required. Or give advice for selecting the right supplies and make suggestions for meaningful alternatives in terms of functionality, quality and price. For example, lightweight is always a weighty criterion in component selection. And standardization helps reduce logistics complexity.

The contribution of the technical value-add distributor on the indirect level is also very interesting. For example, he can support automotive suppliers in the lean design of their production line and in the detection, correction and prevention of faults. Delivery reliability is after all of the greatest importance in this industry. Where necessary, he also supplies technology and knowledge, like industrial automation. Further services include technical training for operators and innovation workshops. This is how the technical value-add distributor keeps automotive moving.
