Motor vehicle logistics With inbound logistics costing around twice as much as assembling a car, optimal supply chain management is an ongoing focus for automotive manufacturers The inbound logistics cost of a finished motor vehicle can be as much as 10% of the total cost of the vehicle. As a comparison, the actual assembly costs of a vehicle are only 5%. In addition, build-to-order concepts, increased model mixes and reduced inventory have increased the complexity of automotive supply chains. This underpins the automotive original equipment manufacturers’ (OEMs) focus on continuous efficiency and control improvements in their supply chains, while at the same time striving to reduce costs and improve product quality.
