One of the world's largest automotive suppliers, supplying more than 40 major vehicle manufacturers and 250 nameplates in 26 countries, produces auto parts in 185 locations around the world. Locations include multiple facilities in Germany, Czech Republic, Poland, France, Italy, Netherlands, UK, Malaysia, Korea, China, Canada, Honduras and Mexico. Managing the PO and moving LCL, FCL and domestic shipments from these different origins for the right costs, at the right time and with the best in class quality is mandatory for this company.
The automotive company has partnered with Jacobson Global Logistics (JGL) for varying services since 1998. Global builds LCL consolidations from Europe both as single point of origin consolidations as well as Multi Country Consolidations (MCC). Those shipments are routed into Houston, moved to El Paso, stored and distributed across the border into Mexico to the automotive company's assembly plants meeting production schedules.
Daily updates provided to the company regarding the status of cargo moving overseas and from US to Mexico also include PO management details such as commercial invoice data, PO numbers, style numbers, estimated time of arrival, freight availability and status of the export customs clearance to Mexico. This enables the automotive company to optimize the production and maximize the working capital.
Jacobson Global's customer services from origin to destination ensures that the automotive company can produce on time and deliver to their demanding clients. The company's partnership with Jacobson enables the company to focus on their core competency of manufacturing while trusting that the logistics and JIT supply chain management are handled seamlessly.
