Parts supply, production logistics and finished vehicle logistics each have their own characteristics. Off course already highly streamlined, integrated and optimised, transparency and timely warning of delays in supply remain essential to limit the disruptive effects of such events. Plant logistics also benefits of the transparency that autoID technology can bring, be it by automatically pulling op work instructions and manuals, controlling the correct use of tools or providing information on available workstations and whereabouts of vehicles for the after service. And whilst finished vehicle supply lanes become increasingly longer, postponement is used to optimise supply, also introducing an increased need for transparency and locating, especially in the stockyards.
