Multinational supply chains, new trends such as the electric car, tailored vehicle construction in smart factories: The automotive sector is undergoing a period of fundamental change. To guarantee future success, speed is of the essence, as is a high degree of intralogistical competence.
In these times of globalisation, the automotive industry is in the midst of fundamental change. Industry 4.0 is the measure of these things. Companies have to cope with multinational supply chains, and parts have to be delivered to smart factories with the utmost speed, reliability, cost efficiency and environmental compatibility. As a result, the automotive and car manufacturing industries require smart, forward-looking logistics solutions and sophisticated technology along the entire supply chain.
This in turn places high demands on the logistics processes in the automotive sector, which also require the flexibility to handle periods of fluctuating demand. As an example, more and more parts and deliveries are being equipped with RFID tags (RFID = radio frequency identification) so that their position is always known in the Internet of Things (IoT). Would you like to benefit from sophisticated smart technology to optimise the flow of information between manufacturers, suppliers and logistics service providers in the vehicle manufacturing sector? With our high-tech solutions, we at Jungheinrich are your ideal partner in the automotive industry.
Our Warehouse Management System, Jungheinrich WMS, controls and oversees all processes in our automotive customers' warehouses. This enables full or partial automation of processes in high-bay or narrow-aisle warehouses, while preventing storage and retrieval errors. Are you looking for a customised, high-tech vehicle construction solution, with everything delivered from a single source? Then you have come to the right place: The Jungheinrich Logistics Interface communicates directly with the warehouse trucks. As a result, the high-rack stackers automatically identify the next target location.
Our industrial trucks, such as the innovative EKX combi stacker, feature transponder technology with RFID readers. Parts equipped with chips can thus be recorded automatically. This results in significant time and cost savings in the multi-national supply chains common in the automotive sector. Of course, our trucks have also been available in electric form for a number of years. In this regard, the world of logistics frequently acts as a model for the automotive industry. With our high-tech solutions we can support you during this paradigm shift in the motor industry – encompassing everything from electric cars to autonomous driving.
