Capabilities

Supply Chain Management within the Automotive industry has always been important and has often been used as a role model for other industries. Lean manufacturing and Lean Supply Chain Management originated within automotive and is one area where Establish is specialized.

Warehouse design & improvements is another area where the specific knowledge of the automotive industry is a key ingredient for successful assignments. Establish works with all the different tiers in the supply chain from fastener manufacturers to truck assembly. This is important since the interfaces between the component makers all the way through all steps in the chain to a complete vehicle are dependent upon the understanding about the other parts requirements.

The logistics around parts handling are more demanding than for many other industries. The assortment needs to be very wide, the forecasting is harder and the deliveries need to be immediate with high service levels. Designing transportation systems is one key element here besides the specific warehouse design requirements. With all the urgent deliveries and the need for full control of costs and accuracy there is often a need for a logistics control tower. This is a tool that would also help you ensure that the invoices are correct according to the agreements that are made.

A special area of the industry where Establish has extra deep experience is the tire industry.
