The automotive supply chain for manufacturing cars, trucks, buses and other vehicles is one of the most complex in the world. It’s becoming more global too, second only to the electronics sector for the spread of suppliers, manufacturers and other third parties around the world.

It’s not just globalization that creates difficulties for automotive suppliers and builders. Changes in manufacturing processes, consumer demands and new, disruptive trends – all impact on the vehicle supply chain network for raw materials, parts and finished automobiles.
