Groupement pour l’Amélioration des Liaisons dans l’Industrie Automobile


The Automotive Supply Chain is characterised by high cost requirements, a large volume of part references for which the supply must be synchronized, high production rates, a network of numerous supplier sites on different tiers, a global supply chain.

The performance of the automotive industry is based on the implementation of standards that ensure the link between customers and suppliers:

  • Operating modes: communication of forecasts, capacity management, packaging management, etc.
  • Standardized means: reusable or lost packaging, identification labels, etc.
  • Information: communication methods, logistics repositories, logistics protocols, etc.
  • Continuous improvement: evaluation tools, key performance indicators …

Manufacturers and equipment suppliers implement improvement projects in the areas of supply, logistics, transport, production and distribution, which require everyone to master best practices in the automotive industry.

In the Logistics area, GALIA’s mission is carried out under the aegis of the Logistics Committee. Priority work is developed thanks to a network of experts and in collaboration with our international partners. Best practices in logistics processes can also lead to work on associated B2B tools.
