Logistics

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.

Guidelines for reporting freight greenhouse gas emissions

LG08_V1R0_en

Freight Greenhouse Gas (GHG) reporting is becoming an increasingly important topic for the industry and cannot be ignored. New standards are being published and there are rising demands for data both from external customers and public bodies as well as to meet the internal GHG accounting objectives of companies. These Guidelines have been bublished specifically for the automotive sector. They are directed at helping all those involved to understand the basic principles and to adopt a consistent approach that will support both recent and future standards and legislative requirements. Rather than introducting new methodologies, these Guidelines make recommendations based on use of the most appropriate existing initiatives. These are initiatives being adopded by industry as a whole and so these Guidelines may be helpful fo those engaged in other sectors besides automotive.
